Homework is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside school time either on their own or with parents. HIS believes that homework should not prevent students from participating in an activity after school such as sport, or clubs of any kind. Equally, students should plan such activities to allow time to complete homework.

HIS pedagogical leadership team developed a clear detailed policy which communicates with the parents, students and teachers the rationale behind giving homework, types and duration of homework, modes of turning in the assignment tasks, and the role and responsibility of each party to perform the tasks successfully.
