Satchel One overview

Satchel One is our homework tracking system. Parents are able to access it by App or any internet-enabled device.

You should have received a 12 digit 'Parent Code' by email for each of your children at the Academy (possibly in the email that directed you here), which you will need to set up your account. This allows you to link your account to your children. If you have not received this, please email

Setting up your account with the SatchelOne App

Alternatively, setting up your account with the SatchelOne Website

Adding another child to your account (if you have multiple children in Years 7-11 at Hertswood)

Support & Reminders

If you would like a more detailed guide to accessing/using SatchelOne, with pictures and videos, see their Parent Guide here.

If you have issues accessing the system, please contact the Hertswood Academy IT Team at

Sixth Form homework is set and tracked through Google Classroom.

Research suggests that completion of homework can improve students' progress by up to 5 months as it encourages independence and revisiting concepts. Hertswood would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of your children at home in encouraging them to complete homework tasks on time and to a good standard.
