Latin at The Grange School
Latin at AS and A level is demanding; it requires
precision of thought and an extensive knowledge
of the language. A student’s understanding and
appreciation of literature are expanded by reading a
wide number of texts, some for translation practice,
some to encourage critical judgement, and some to
expand a student’s knowledge and understanding of
the classical civilisation of Rome.
Needless to say, students must have studied GCSE Latin to continue to AS. Assessment is
by examination at the end of the LVI for AS and the UVI for A2. Each year is divided up into
2 units. The units are the same for both AS and A2. The depth of study and understanding
required for the A2 units is predictably more advanced than for AS. Set texts change every
three years. Examples of type are given below.
Our standard academic entry requirements
into the Sixth Form at The Grange School are:
¬ Students should secure Grade A or A* in the
four or five subjects to be studied at AS level;
¬ Where the subject is not offered at GCSE
(e.g. Philosophy), we would expect to see
evidence of Grade A or A* in related subjects;
¬ These results should be accompanied with
four other GCSEs at Grade B or above which
should include English and Mathematics if
they are not one of the chosen AS subjects;
¬ Any remaining GCSE examination results
should be at Grade C or above.
