Hi all,

Could parents who have children at these schools please tell me the levels of homework children need to do every day? We are considering the schools and as our son will have to travel, we need to know how much free time he will have!

All answers would be hugely appreciated! Thanks in advance!

DS is in Year 7 at Beths and at the start was getting a couple of bits a night which initially was taking him between an hour and an hour and a half.
It has noticeably trailed off and he now usually has one subject (sometimes two) which usually takes less than an hour.
We've found the important thing is to keep on top of it, ie try and do it asap, rather than wait until the night before its due!
DS also has a long trip home and although he's tired, he's managing it all very well.

Hello Fingerscrossedmum,
Thanks so much for this response. One hour sounds manageable.

Hi

My ds has recently started at Chis and Sid. They generally get three pieces of homework a night, each piece should take about 30 minutes. Having said this, things do vary, the last couple of weeks he has been getting less. Another plus is that the homework timetable is accurate, ie he doesn't get homework for subjects unless they are on the timetable (hope I make sense!).
