At The Hyndburn Academy, we know that learning outside lesson time is essential to long-term academic success. It allows students to extend their learning and to reinforce what has been learned in class.
Homework is set via the Arbor App and parents/carers and students can see clearly what they have been set and the date due to be handed in.

Knowledge Organisers contain critical, fundamental knowledge for all subjects that you must know in order to be successful. They will help you recap, revisit and revise what you have learned in lessons to move the knowledge within from your short-term memory to long-term memory.
