Llanidloes High School Home Work

Homework

The school policy on homework is to set and mark homework. It is also the policy of the school to advise and guide pupils to complete their homework.

 


 
We expect all pupils to do homework and, as far as is possible and reasonable, every pupil should receive one substantial homework exercise per week in each subject studied which should be recorded in the Student’s Diary for parents to check.

The time taken to do a particular homework will vary from pupil to pupil, depending on ability, depth of experience and keenness to produce a good piece of work.  Homework will not always involve the production of written work. Pupils may be asked to learn work, to carry out research for a project or to collect material.

If a parent feels that a homework is taking too long they should write a note in the homework diary to let the teacher know, and to ensure that the learner is not disadvantaged in any way.  If there is a special occasion which means that a learner can not complete a piece of homework on time then again a note in the homework diary will ensure that a reasonable extension can be provided.

When a learner is away from school due to illness or family holiday etc it is expected that they copy up any work missed while they are away.  Help will be provided in cases of long term absence.


Expected duration of homework;

KS3 (Years 7-9) 20 - 30 minutes per item set

KS4 (Years 10-11) 40 - 60 minutes per item set

KS5 (Years 12 and 13) - According to subject need

Examination Results 2017

We are delighted and extremely proud that once again our students have achieved excellent exam results.

A Level: 100% of the year 13 cohort achieve the Level 3 threshold, which is the equivalent of 2 or more A*-E grades,  with 27% gaining 2 or more  A*- A,  94% achieved 2 or more A*-C grades (placing us top in Powys).  Worthy of particular note were 7 students who have 2 or more grade A*/A:  Ffion Williams with 4 A’s, Olivia Jones with 1A* and 3 A’s, Molly Hughes with A*, 2 A’s and B, Sioned Jones A*, 2A’s and C, Lauren Williams 2 A*, 1A, 1B, Amy Hill 2A’s, 1 Distinction*, 1C and William Richards with 2A’s, 2B’s.

There is no doubt that their hard work and dedication, together with the commitment of their teachers and parents who have supported them, has been justly rewarded with these outstanding results. 96% have been successful in gaining a place in their first choice university.


GCSE: We are proud to announce another set of excellent GCSE examination results at Llanidloes High School. Particularly pleasing was the 27.4% of pupils who achieved 5 or more A*-A grades which continues our improving trend from previous years.  English results, unlike the National picture, showed a significant improvement with 83.2% achieving A*- C  grades. 96% of the year group passed the newly graded Welsh Baccalaureate qualification.  76.8% gained level 2 and 67.4% the level 2 inclusive (at least 5 A*-C including English and Maths).

Congratulations go to the pupils who, supported by staff and parents, have put in tremendous effort to achieve results that they should be very proud of. I look forward to welcoming many back to our very successful sixth form, which achieved the best A*-C grades in Powys, and wish others every success in their future.  Thanks must go to the staff, parents, governors and the community who continue to support the school in continuing to provide excellent teaching and learning.
