Homework at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys is an essential part of learning as it provides an opportunity to consolidate and reflect on knowledge and understanding and to prepare for future material. Good homework gives students the chance to discover and explore more about their learning and to take ownership of it. Homework should also develop valuable skills such as concentration, independence of thought, time management, research and academic rigour so that all students leave ready for study at university level and future employment.
Show My Homework (SMHW) is online platform and smartphone app. It is school policy that all staff use SMHW to set homework and record its submission status. All students will use it as a means of accessing set work and all parents have access to see what work has been set as well as their submission status. We hope that it will improve pupils’ organisational skills, time-management and help them to keep on top of their workload.
