The AGS Way’ Homework

At Ash Green School (AGS) our purpose is to equip all our students with the powerful knowledge and transferable skills they need to succeed in our global community. According to the EEF Homework, in particular tasks that are high quality and linked to lessons, have a positive impact on average (+ 5 months).[i]
