Upcoming Events

  • Year 9-10 Science

    During Year 9 and 10 your son/daughter will be studying all three sciences (biology, chemistry and physics) through 13 different topics. At the end of Year 11 they will have gained two GCSE science grades, one for core science and one for additional science. The topics are taught in a method called zoned learning, whereby students work independently to complete their work allowing the teacher to circulate and give individual or group support to students. You son/daughter will be taught in a mixed ability group, meaning that the group number on their timetable has no relevance to their actual ability in science.

  • Timings of the School Day

    Here are the timings for the new school day from August 2014. We feel this change will secure the best learning opportunities and generous curriculum time for students whilst providing the necessary time to give high quality training and planning time to staff. This is of vital importance as we seek to achieve our goal of world class learning and an Outstanding Ofsted inspection.

  • Ypres 2014 Letter

    Our visit to Ypres is being planned for Year 9 & 11 history groups and your son/daughter will be given the opportunity to participate. Trips to Hill 60 - Sanctuary Wood Museum, Tyne Cot Cemetery, Langemark German Cemetery, Menin Gate and In Flanders Fields Museum are included!

  • End of Term Letter

    It has been a busy and rewarding year at Homewood and as we approach the summer holiday, I am writing to share with you some of the successes of the year and to look ahead to the changes we will be implementing from next term.

  • Discovery Induction letter

    I would just like to take this opportunity to say how well your sons and daughters have done during their induction week at Homewood School. All of the students who are joining us have played their part in making the week a great success and I hope that your son or daughter has been able to share with you some of the positive experiences they have had this week.
