Extensive research suggests there is no correlation between academic performance and assigning homework. Similarly, there is no research that links homework with good study habits or character building. In fact, the negative effects of homework and their impact on families are well known. As a result, IFS maintains a ‘No Homework Policy’.
It is important to note, however, that while our teachers do not formally issue homework, we do not discourage learning at home. Students are encouraged to always do their best work, and in order to do this, extra preparation time and revision outside of class may be required to meet deadlines.
