Classics

The Arnold House Classics Department offers Latin to all pupils between Years 5 and 8 and Ancient Greek for some in Years 7 and 8. Pupils are prepared for either Common Entrance or scholarship to senior schools.

The department aims to:

  • To foster an interest and to increase the awareness of the classical world around us
  • To introduce pupils to the great myths of the Greek and Roman world
  • To make pupils aware of classical roots in English and the Romance languages
  • To increase pupils’ knowledge of English grammar and their general word–power
  • To help pupils think in a logical way
