Great Learning - Some Examples

We're really proud of the work our secondary school students produce. To give you an idea of the standard of their homework and classwork we'll be adding examples here throughout 2019-20. See also great work by our primary phase students.


Here are a few examples from last year to kick things off.


English (Year 7)

In their English lessons, our Year 7s recently wrote travel articles about Messina, the Italian city on the Island of Sicily. They had to research the area themselves and create an article persuading others to visit (see Aimee's lovely work below). Having a feel for this sunny destination helps students to understand the atmosphere that Shakespeare wanted to create in his play Much Ado About Nothingwhich is set in Messina. Read more about our Messina project.

Messina   Aimee


Science (Year 11)

We asked Year 11 to describe a detailed method to investigate how pH affects enzyme action. Read Simran’s method, which we loved because it is detailed and includes all measurements and units.


Science (Year 7)

For homework we asked Year 7 students to create their own posters about safety in science lessons. Kaden made a massive effort to include entertaining images to catch people’s eyes, as well as practical advice. Well done Kaden!

Science Kayden 16.10.18


Maths (Year 7)

We asked students to use coordinates to draw 2D shapes on the x and y axis. Here's Gerald's very carefully drawn work.

Maths homework Gerald


Food Preparation and Nutrition (Year 9)

Chloe shows her fantastic breadmaking skills. Chloe made an assortment of breads during a one hour lesson where students demonstrated the use of microorganisms in food production. She increased the nutritive value of the breads by adding seeds,  mozzerella cheese, dried fruits and herbs. Chloe was Star Baker of the Week!

Homework food 1

Chloe glazed the breads before baking to improve the finishing.


Art and Design (Year 11)

Produce an A1 painting in the style of the Futurist Movement. Your piece must show your knowledge and understanding of depth, movement, motion and incorporate the human form within it.

Here's Tilly's artwork

Art Year 11 Tilly

And Zoe's artwork.

Art Zoe Year 11


History (Year 8)

Write description of slavery. Use examples from ancient and more modern times. Explain how there were different types of slaves in Ancient Rome, giving examples of the work they did and the status they could achieve. What are the two inferences you make about the Middle Passage from this source? Andy's excellent work shows a student’s early progression in a historical topic as well as the depth of the knowledge he has learned elsewhere before being taught the topic.

French (Year 9)

Write a paragraph about a perfect or disastrous night out. Karolina has written this paragraph in the past tense describing the excitement and disappointment of a customer doing her shopping.  This work is special as it shows the student’s ability to manipulate the verbs in past tense. This homework is showing the students’ creativity in writing in French using complex sentences.

French homework 211117


History (Year 9)

Year 9 students were asked to explain why there was continuity in ideas about the cause of disease during the period 1250-1500. Oliver's answer below shows an excellent understanding of the concept of continuity in ideas, with points well explained and linked to historical evidence.

History oliver


Design and Technology (Year 7)

Jodie has drawn this pillar drill we used today in class. She has annotated and described clearly all the safety features that we must be aware of and use.

Dt jodie

She's made a successful foray into 3D representation, a technique that should be encouraged. The layout shows a good balance between drawn and written elements and colour is sensitively applied. There's good use of higher level words correctly incorporated into sentences (e.g. ‘recessed’, ‘protruding’, ‘differ’). Well done Jodie


English Literature (Year 10)

Students were asked to complete an essay exploring the concept of evil in the character of Mr Hyde. As a 'stretch' task, students could include ideas from Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil to explore theories of evil during the Victorian era. Caitlin planned and completed her essay incorporating higher order stretch tasks within a one hour lesson. It demonstrates the amount of work that can be completed within a lesson, with perfect presentation and organised learning. Download Caitlin's essay.
