Discover Big Ideas

‘Complete wider reading’ is a pretty vague instruction that isn’t particularly helpful, but is often recommended by advisors, universities, employers and your teachers.

The reason it’s quite vague is because there are so many great ideas out there and what will be relevant for each person will be completely different. It can be difficult to know where to start, though, so we’ve pulled together some recommendations for you. These have been carefully selected to be currententertainingly written and relevant. 

Kent Libraries online – our recommended list

When we’re not at school, you can use Kent Libraries’ online service. Their range is being expanded all the time and we have created a ‘recommended’ list from what is on offer in their ebooks and audiobooks collections. These are free to access – you just need a library card. If you don’t have a library card then you can register for a temporary account online – then go into any local library to get it confirmed.

Wrotham Sixth Form Library (currently closed)

When we’re at school, you can use the newly established Sixth Form Library. Wrotham sixth form students receive logins to the catalogue and booking system. The books are then collected from and returned to your form tutor. We have created an Amazon Wishlist that we update all the time and are very grateful to the people who donate.
