KS3 Independent Study

At Broadoak, homework is referred to as Independent study. This term is used to refer to work completed outside of the classroom, but not necessarily at home. For example, some students may choose to complete additional work at school.

Independent Study is linked to the curriculum and will focus on consolidating foundational knowledge and skills. Students will be given independent learning to complete each week by their subject teachers following the guidance outlined below:

Key stageCore subjects (English, Maths, Science)Additional subjects
KS3 (Year 7-9)Once per weekTwice a term
KS4 (Year 10-11)Once per weekOnce per week

 To support Independent Study and revision for assessments that will happen in all subjects in January and June, a range of knowledge organisers have been created and are arranged by term available on this page.

There are also individual booklets for Year 7, 8 and 9 with all the independent study activities collated by term.
