Personalised Homework

Homework is cited regularly by parents/carers on admission to Highfields College as something their child point blank refuses to engage in and/or something that has previously been a regular source of conflict.

For this reason we do not have a set homework programme for all young people. However, where individuals do wish to undertake homework, we recommend the following links below. This page contains links to resources that can be used by our students at home, including revision resources for our Year 11 students. Where a website needs a username and password, please email: contact@highfieldscollege.org.uk.

Additionally, Mrs Portnell (Director of Teaching & Learning) will regularly liaise with young people and their parents/carers to create a regular personalised programme of homework relevant to their studies.

General Well-Being

We recommend the free website www.Kooth.com for supporting students in their mental health and well-being.

We also have an online recipe book for Cooking & Nutrition – and can provide ingredients to students who are ‘stuck at home’. More about this can be found out here: https://www.highfieldscollege.org.uk//cooking-at-home/
