Their imaginations run wild as they learn all the most exciting stories from Greek mythology and they are given access to the earliest, and arguably the best, literature in Europe. Learning Latin teaches students the fundamentals of many languages, including English. Classics encourages you to solve linguistic problems and increase your word power. It helps you to expand memory and powers of reasoning and enables you to consider issues still relevant today from a much longer perspective. Classics is the closest you can get to long-distance time travel. An extremely wide-ranging subject, it encompasses language, literature, art, archaeology, history, politics, philosophy, science and technology.
There is close collaboration with Monmouth School for Boys in a number of areas. Not only are trips, Classical Society activities and lectures all joint enterprises but the Sixth Form Classical curriculum itself is delivered across both schools with Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation, all available up to A level.
