Classical Civilisation


The Classics department aims to promote and foster a better understanding of the world we live in, by enabling pupils to develop an enthusiasm and understanding of the Classical World and its powerful influence on modern languages. Studying the legacy of Greece and Rome opens new ways to understand the relevance of the ancient Mediterranean world in modern times—in arts and letters, science and medicine, geopolitics, law, entertainment, and religion. Students are trained to excel in logical analysis and ethical reasoning and to put complex problems into words.
