Homework Policy

We at OIS believe that regular homework is necessary to support students’ understanding in the subjects. Homework is set by teachers in their subjects and students take down the details in their homework diaries, on the day that it is set. Homework can be completed during the 4-5pm homework club by younger students, with support from older mentors and the teacher in charge.

For the Diploma students, it should be realised that two hours per night is an absolute minimum and more will often be required.


Y6 & Y7 – 30 mins a night Mon-Thursday (no H/W Friday unless needing to catch up)

Y8 & Y9 – 1 hr per night (Mon-Fri)

Y10 & Y11 – 1 hr 30 mins per night (Mon-Fri)

DP – 2 hrs per night (Mon-Fri)
