At Ormiston Latimer we do not routinely set homework, it is available on request. This is because we believe learners should  have the freedom to explore their interests and engage in independent learning. We recognize that homework can sometimes be burdensome and may not always align with students’ individual needs and learning styles. 

Instead of assigning traditional homework, we encourage learners to utilize their time outside of the classroom in a way that best suits their learning preferences. We provide resources and support to help students pursue their passions, deepen their understanding of subjects, and engage in meaningful activities that align with their interests. 

By promoting self-directed learning, we aim to foster a sense of intrinsic motivation and autonomy among our students. We believe that when learners have the freedom to choose what they want to learn and how they want to learn it, they are more likely to develop a lifelong love for learning and achieve greater academic success. 

However, it’s important to note that different educational institutions and philosophies may have varying approaches to homework. The decision to assign or not assign homework ultimately depends on the school’s educational philosophy, curriculum, and the needs of its students. 

We will always support learners or parental request for homework and will provide appropriate resources when requested.  We also promote learning sites such as.
