Wider reading around students’ academic subjects is so important for students aiming for A*-B or Distinction/Distinction grades. It will help develop students vocabulary, familiarity with contextual information, and develop further idea covered in class, which will help with examinations and coursework. Similarly, competitive universities will want to know what engagement students have with subjects that they intend to study at university, and reading a related book is great evidence for this.
Attached is a list of subject-specific books which Sixth Formers will enjoy reading, some of which can be found in the Harrow High School or Gayton library. All sixth formers should try and read 1 related book per term.
