Homework FAQ

Why Homework?

CAN is proud to support students in learning independently outside of lessons. The skills and knowledge that they will gain from completing homework will allow them to adapt and succeed in a rapidly changing world and gain the best possible qualifications for your future. We work hard to ensure all our students are making the progress they need to in order to achieve the highest possible outcomes. Completion of homework is an essential ingredient in this process.
