Home Learning

Home Learning at Stretford High School is an integral part of the curriculum which contributes to achieving good or better progress alongside high levels of engagement for all our students. We believe that Home Learning supports the development of skills and excellent habits which will enhance learning while at school and prepare students very well for future work and life.


Themes of Home learning

At SHS we use a shared language for setting H/L, this is to ensure that students are aware of the purpose of their H/L tasks.


Google Classroom

All of our home learning is set using google classroom. Students log in using their school Gmail account. Students should then click on the ‘to do’ list button to view their assignments. Alternatively, they can click on the calendar button and see their assignments.

How do students find their home learning?

1)    Log into google classroom (classroom.google.com) using your school email and password. You will see all of your classes.

2)    Click on the ‘to do’ button to see their work ina  list or calendar to see their work in the form of a calendar.
