Latin A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College
The key to a rich and influential literature and to a range of modern languages.
Why choose Latin?
Latin gives students the key to a rich and influential literature and to a range of modern languages. Historical context and Roman ideas and values are studied as part of the background to literature and language. You will learn to think logically and analytically about language and literature and you will develop a critical approach to ideas of Roman society and compare them with those current today. There are also opportunities for developing research and presentation skills as well as trips to conferences and plays and, in some years, to Rome.
The work is challenging but rewarding and some students have gone on to study classics at universities including Oxbridge. Latin A level is now offered by a few state schools and colleges; it is a relatively rare qualification valued by universities and employers alike.
"Studying Latin at Hills has been a great opportunity to get to know the Romans, their language and their authors. The teachers help get you up to speed with an A level standard of work really quickly." Finn Jarvis
What you will need to study A level Latin: GCSE grade 6 or B in Latin (short course GCSE acceptable).
