Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Central Office


















Homework is used at Harris Academy Battersea to reinforce learning in the classroom, allowing students to retrieve and apply knowledge from across the curriculum.

Homework helps students demonstrate their resilience through developing fundamental skills such as time management and organisation, eventually demonstrating mastery of material, and offers opportunities to show their integrity when completing without the assistance of a teacher. Homework gives students the opportunity for independent learning so they can thrive in a changing world.

The design of homework at HABS aims to avoid meaningless or "busy” work, as opposed to embedding knowledge through retrieval practice.

Homework timetables

Below is the timetable for when homework is due and when it will be checked by teachers:

By year

By year

By department

By department

Each subject has an allocated day of the week where homework is set and checked by the teacher; if a piece of homework is set on a Monday, it will be collected the following Monday in the lesson.

The only exception for this are the online homework systems, Sparx, Teams, Languagenut, Seneca and Bedrock, where the deadline is 8:30pm the night before the new homework will be set. This will allow the work to be checked in advance of the lesson. For example, Year 7 Maths teachers will set homework on Friday 17th September on Sparx, the deadline will be the next Thursday on the 23rd September at 8:30pm.

If students lose their homework, spare copies can be collected from the subject's department or any teacher. Any homework that is not attempted will be recorded by the classroom teacher on the day that it is due to be checked and a sanction will be set.

Should there be any problems or issues, please email with your child’s full name, their year group and a description of the issue.

KS3 homework

At HABS, years 7, 8 and 9 will receive two types of homework. Online and project based homework.

Online homework

Year 10s will also be expected to complete Bedrock tasks.

Project based homework

Projects are an amazing opportunity for students to engage with the curriculum in a different way. Also, for the students to develop key skills they would need in KS4 and KS5. It will give them more ownership of their work and it's an opportunity to be creative and to showcase skills that are not often recognised.

KS3 students will receive one humanities project and one arts project each half term. The expectation is that it will span the time of the half term.

KS4 and KS5 homework

Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 will receive paper-based homework and study work. This will be set once per week for each subject. For every student, for every subject, students will therefore receive one piece of homework per week on green paper.
