Classics Level 2/3
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Peterson
Studying Classics fosters academic excellence by activating students' intellectual curiosity and ability to inquire into human experience across time and place.
In 2023, we will be opening this subject up to both Year 12 and 13 students. Both year groups will be doing the same topic but they will be assessed at their appropriate year level. If you are a Year 12 next year and take Classics and plan to also take Classics in Year 13; not to worry, we are making Classical Studies a two-year programme so that you will engage with a different chapter of content in your following year.
2023: the context will likely be Ancient Greek Civilisation (art, literature, architecture, and society)
2024: the context will likely be Ancient Roman Civilisation (art, literature, architecture, and society)
