Holmleigh Park High School

Homework

Students spend only a small fraction of their time at school. Homework is therefore an essential part of ensuring our students have the best chance of success.

Tassomai completion counts from Friday morning until 8am on Thursday. Any completed after 8am on Thursday may not be counted and this may result in a detention.

Any questions or queries about homework please contact Miss Seward  via email [email protected]
