Subject and Wider Reading

There are many opportunities available to our Sixth Form students to extend their study by reading and listening more widely around their subject areas, and on wider issues. We recommend and promote materials through our subject and guidance curriculum to support students to  develop their  intellectual curiosity and independent learning.  

Every subject provides a wider reading list which includes books, articles, podcasts etc that support the development of both subject understanding and subject interest. Our library is an excellent resource and our librarian supports students to navigate research.
