Homework

For all students, homework is an important part of learning at NUAST.

NUAST believes that homework is important in:

  • Reinforcing, broadening and extending the school curriculum
  • enabling students to understand that independent learning is vital to achieving success and highly desired by employers and further education
  • instilling the importance of life-long learning
  • encouraging organisational skills and self-discipline

Homework is set for a variety of reasons, which are:

  • to encourage and develop self-discipline, planning and time management skills
  • to encourage and develop independent study habits
  • to give students a sense of responsibility for, and a commitment to their learning
  • to allow reinforcing, extending and consolidating of work done in lessons
  • to involve parents/carers as partners in education
  • to develop revision skills and efficient preparation for assessments
