Show My Homework

We set Home Learning Projects via: 'Show My Homework' (SMHW)

Whenever homework is set, it will be recorded using SMHW.

Guidance on how to log in to view the online homework calendar is attached below.

The beauty of SMHW is that you do not need log in details to look at the homework – you can just search for Fairfield High School and then select by year, teacher or class and it will detail the homework that’s been set.
