At Beechen Cliff we are very clear about the importance of homework. We believe homework has huge benefits – it improves performance in lessons, enables positive reinforcement from teachers, improves attitudes towards lessons and develops pupils’ capacity to work independently. Homework is set rigorously and the school has high expectations of pupils and the quality of the homework handed in to teachers.
Boarding students complete five prep sessions per week which are supervised by experienced staff members who provide support and monitor the academic performance of the students. In addition to prep set by academic teachers, students are encouraged to read and can watch the 'documentary of the week' during their prep sessions.
