Independent Study Reading Guides

Independent Study Reading: going beyond the classroom


 One of the best ways you stand out during your Sixth Form studies is through the amount of independent study you undertake outside of the classroom. Regardless of your future plans, the ability to extend yourself and research independently into your interests is an invaluable skill - " this will support your university applications and/or future job applications and interviews. All universities expect more than just classroom knowledge, which is where supercurricular activities come in; these are academic enrichment tasks that show you are interested in your studies beyond what is on the school syllabus.
