By studying Latin GCSE, you will be able to build on the linguistic skills you have developed in the Middle school and put these into practice by reading ‘real’ Latin - you will prepare one prose and one verse text prior to the examination and will be required to translate sections as well as answer comprehension questions about the text.

Classical Greek

This is an intensive 2 year course, using John Taylor’s Greek to GCSE. Whether or not you choose to study Greek alongside Latin, you will be able to apply the linguistic concepts you developed by studying Latin in the middle school. All students of Greek find it extremely rewarding that by the end of the first year of the course they are already translating the prose literature.
