At Walthamstow Academy, every student is expected to complete homework every night. We use 'Google Classroom' to set, track and monitor homework at the Academy - students, parents and teachers are all given their own individual log-ins so that homework is easy to access and understand for all.

Each piece of homework should take the following amount of time to complete: 

Year 7 - 8:           30 - 45 minutes per homework

Year 9:                45 – 60 minutes per homework

Year 10 - 11:       60 – 75 minutes per homework
