Welcome to
the Classics Department!

Salve! Classics is the study of the ancient world, particularly the Romans and Greeks. We teach Latin, Classical Greek and AS Classical Civilisation. These subjects allow students to immerse themselves in the language, literature, history and beliefs of these two ancient cultures. They also provide a vantage point to reflect on our own.
