The Classics Department offers a full Latin curriculum and a literacy support based course which has been developed using Classical background topics.
In Year 5, pupils are introduced to major Greek myths and the seminal literature of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Latin is taught in two 35 minutes periods per week with one 20 minute prep.
In Year 6, following assessment, pupils embark on a course selected to meet their needs and the level of language required by their intended senior school, either based around the ‘So you really want to learn’ series or the ‘Ab Initio’ series. Early Roman history is also included in the curriculum.
