The study of Latin is invaluable to pupils. In the lessons we bring Roman culture to life and pupils learn to appreciate the important influence of the Latin language on modern European languages. Pupils are encouraged to see the links between English and Latin words and this enhances their sensitivity to language and language learning in general. The lessons include a range of activities. Apart from the more formal aspects of learning grammar and vocabulary pupils take part in plays in Latin, play games, create visual stimuli and develop their ability to pronounce Latin accurately.
Employers and educators really appreciate a pupil who has studied Latin as it is regarded as an indication of quality.
