Additional Resources for Subjects include:

History

Year 7 and Year 8 is a half termly Homework booklet, which is based on each lesson that students have. Each question should take 5-10 minutes, and is aimed to be set weekly, linking in to GCSE exam skills and students content recall from their lessons. Therefore, if they were paying attention in class, then they should easily be able to complete the guided question.

Year 9 and Year 10 will be linked to class content, and to date, has been exam questions, DIRT/purple pen work, and independent research as well as completing some classwork as and when needed.
