'lampada vitae tradimus'
'handing over the torch of life'
Our aim is to ignite an enthusiasm to discover and appreciate the Classical Civilisations of Rome and Greece which have had a profound impact on modern European language & culture.
This subject gives pupils the opportunity to study the language and literature of ancient Rome, reading the works of famous authors such as Virgil, Ovid, Cicero and Tacitus. Pupils experience elements of the culture, language and social and political life of the Roman civilisation which has inspired many later generations. As well as being exciting and inspiring, this course helps pupils develop analytical skills and intellectual flexibility which will be useful in a wide range of jobs or in further study.
