Classics

What’s the point of studying Latin – it’s just a dead language, isn’t it? Wrong! Latin underpins the language, culture and history of English and, at a time of great change, it has never been more important to know where we and our language come from.

At Moor Park, all pupils (except a very few, who may be concentrating on extra English) study Latin – two lessons a week in Year 5, three in Year 6 and four in Years 7 and 8. Pupils use first the Minimus textbook and then the Cambridge Latin Course, preparing them for either Common Entrance or Scholarship.

In addition, pupils learn something of the history and thought of the Greeks and Romans and read through the Iliad and the Odyssey, the two great epics of Greek poetry.

Finally, Greek is a luncheon club for Year 6 and on the timetable for Years 7 and 8, stretching the keen enthusiasts and meaning they can hit the ground running at their next school.

In the private sector, Classics is on the up and up – and that’s something we aim to support at Moor Park. Vae Victis!
