Show My Homework


We use ‘Show My Homework’ to set and monitor homework at The Whitstable School.  Show My Homework (SMHW) is an online platform that provides each pupils with a personalised homework diary.  Parents can also view the diary to see progress and completion.  SMHW works on all types of device and is very user friendly.  At the start of each academic year pupils and parents will receive their log on pin and instruction on how to activate the account.  If you would like to reset your password or are experiencing problems please contact Mrs J Croucher 01227 931340.
