At Downshire, there is a homework policy which helps develop the study skills necessary for success at GCSE and other Public Examinations. All pupils will be set a reasonable amount of homework each evening, these should be recorded in the Homework Diary provided. Parents are asked to see that homework is completed to the highest possible standard and to encourage pupils to spend time each evening on set work and revision of the day’s lessons.

The School has established a Homework/Study Support Club, with a member of the teaching staff in attendance, to offer pupils the opportunity to work in the comfortable and quiet surroundings of our Library.
