Wider Reading

Sixth Form Wider Reading List

"Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary" Jim Rohan

"Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow" Lawrence Clark Powell

"Read an hour every day in your chosen field. This works out to about one book per week, 50 books per year, and will guarantee your success"

Wider reading develops you as an independent learner.  It deepens your understanding of a subject and makes you more attractive to universities. As an A Level Student you should allocate some of your independent study time to wider reading; fifteen to forty-five minutes of sustained silent reading or active purposeful reading each day is an effective use of your independent study time and will build learning power.

We aim to shape individuals who will learn for themselves and learn for pleasure, engaging with one of these subject specific reading lists may be the first step.
