Show My Homework

All homework at Allerton Grange is set using a system called Show My Homework. This is an electronic diary, which can be accessed cross-platform, either through a free phone app or by logging in to the Show My Homework website. A link to the site can be accessed via the Useful Links slide out on the right hand side of the screen.


When students start at Allerton Grange, they will receive a PIN that will allow them to access their homework. The site will remind them of deadlines, contain copies of the resources they need, and may even link to websites or video clips. Parents/carers will also be given an individual PIN so that they can see what homework has been set and approximately how long it should take. It will also indicate if students are completing their homework on time.


Homework will be set in all subject areas on a regular basis; it is designed to build on class work and help students improve. It is important that students are encouraged and supported at home in developing good independent working habits.
