At St Brendan’s School, we have high expectations for our learners and we strive to offer engaging and challenging learning experiences, whilst endeavoring always to meet the learning needs of the individual.

At St Brendan’s we have specialist teachers for the teaching of Music and Physical Education.

We also aim to offer students access to a broad range of extracurricular activities and learning opportunities e.g., academic competitions and a range of sporting and cultural events.


Homework will be set by your child’s classroom teacher, either on a daily or weekly basis. Homework should not cause tension at home. If your child’s homework is regularly causing issues because it is too difficult or taking too long, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Homework provides opportunities to…

  • Consolidate, reinforce and practice core knowledge and skills.
  • Allow children to develop positive home study and work habits.
  • Inform parents and involve them in their child’s learning.
  • Prepare students for the demands of secondary school (older students)
