Can anyone give me a rough idea of how long their DCs spend on homework in Year 10, just so what's in front of our DC and us.

45 minutes per subject per night, max. Sometimes less. Depends what it is.

My daughter does about 3/4 sometimes 5 hours a night. But she is massive perfectionist so not sure if that's normal!

And normally one day on a weekend

Approx 45 mins per subject per night sounds about right. dd is just finishing Y10 and is taking 9 GCSEs and has 3 subjects per night on her timetable (she hasn't always had homework for all subjects though). Usually there is approx 1 week to hand homework in.

Do you mean how much the school homework policy says he should be doing (10 hours a week)?

Or how much I actually see him do (5 hours a week)?

Mine went to boarding school and never had the opportunity to do 5 hours a night! It would not have been allowed and it is far too much. I would be very worried about this. I assume you don't think 4-5 hours a night and a whole day at weekends is normal! I am glad mine had time for music, dance, sport, drama, debating, socialising, D of E, and all the activities on offer in their boarding houses. If a year 10 child has to work that hard, there are likely to be problems at A level. My DD1 did 11 GCSEs and got A*s so a reasonable amount of homework is fine. A rounded personality counts for a lot too!

Thanks for your replies. They've had very little homework in Year 9, but in Years 7&8 she was doing approx. 10-12 hours a week, so doesn't sound like Year 10 will be much worse than that - she can cope and so can we!

More than in year 9, less than year 11 grin

In y10, DD was able to not work most Saturdays and go ice skating for DofE instead, then working Sunday mornings. That would have been impossible in y11.
