A new way to record, track and monitor homework at Stanborough School

We are excited to be launching Show My Homework, an online tool to help you keep track of your child’s homework. Show My Homework will allow you to see the details of the tasks your child has been set, all their deadlines and their submission status and grades. We have decided to bring on this system to improve the way we communicate with parents and give you greater visibility into the homework we set.

You will be provided with login details to your personal account which is linked to your child’s homework calendar where you will be able to see your child’s To-do List and any homework that is overdue. These logins will be sent out within 2 weeks after launching but in the meantime, you are still able to view all homework.

To view all homework set without login details please go to the main menu on this website and click on Homework. Please note you will need to use the filter options at the top of the page to find your child’s homework.

  • 24/7 access
  • View quality and quantity of homework
  • Translation into over 50 languages
  • Apps available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices
  • Receive automated notifications before homework is due

We have launched Show My Homework on 14.02.2019 and we hope that this service will provide parents with a deeper insight into the homework your child receives. More importantly, we hope that it will improve your child’s organisation, time-management and help them to keep on top of their workload.

To keep up to date on the move please download the Show My Homework app once you receive your login details, you will then be sent push notifications to let you know what homework is due. You will also be notified of grades, overdue homework and announcements/events. If you or your child have any questions about the service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with the team at Show My Homework, who are always happy to help. Just visit help.showmyhomework.co.uk or call 0207 197 9550.

Up For Marine Engineering?

I have never thought about being an engineer before, so I was not particularly excited about this workshop. I like to study maths and physics, but engineering wasn’t an option that I considered until the Marine Engineering Workshop that Stanborough School organised for us.  A friendly marine engineer came to deliver the workshop and it was an interesting experience for me: it opened my eyes to a number of careers in Science, Engineering and Technology.

In the first part of the workshop, the instructor explained to us what marine engineering is, what marine engineers do and what this profession aims for. I was amazed at the fascinating things that marine engineers build; being a marine engineer means more than simply building boats and submarines. It is building whatever needs to be built in a creative and innovative way.

In the second part, we had a practical activity and a competition. The class was divided in groups of three and our task was to build a boat with thick paper and some wires. We would then put all the boats in water, filling them with some marble balls. Finally, the boat that could hold the maximum number of balls without sinking, would win. In the end, it was harder than we thought. Building a little paper boat is difficult enough; this made me realise that to build a real boat is not an easy job.

By the end of the workshop, engineering was becoming a very viable and attractive career option. While I might not necessarily opt for marine engineering, other areas of this profession are definitely worth exploring. What intrigued me most about engineering is how it has comprises maths and physics principles, along with creativity and originality.

It’s elections time in Stanborough School!

After talking to a real politician and getting their beliefs together, the full immersion students from year 9 and 10 officially started their political campaign in assembly on the 22nd of January. This is part of a project, for the subject of Humanities, and will last till the 5th of February, when the school will vote for the best candidate.

Divided into two parties, ‘International Stanborough Party’ and ‘Together for You’, the students presented their beliefs and suggestions for improvements in the school. Next week both parties will fight for votes in a debate, and one week after that, elections will take place.

You can see their campaign video and pick your favourite by clicking here
