Homework is work that is set to be done outside the taught curriculum. It contains an element of independent study as it is not directly supervised by a teacher.

Homework can be completed within school, for example, at Homework Club or in the LRC (Learning Resource Centre) when tasks require books, software or equipment not found readily at home. Homework enhances student learning, improves achievement and develops students’ study skills and as such is an integral part of the curriculum.
