Children learn Latin in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. We follow the Maximus Classics scheme from Classics For All, which gives children a strong grounding in Latin vocabulary and grammar as well as paired lessons in Ancient History.
Latin gives our children a very good understanding of English grammar and word roots as well as providing a springboard for learning Romance languages such as French, Italian and Spanish.
As part of our Enrichment curriculum, we offer children short courses and after school clubs which introduce them to modern foreign languages, including French, Spanish and Japanese, and additional ancient languages such as Ancient Greek.
