Classical Civilisation at The Grange School
This non-linguistic A/AS level involves the study of
the society and literature of ancient Greece and
Rome. The main political, religious and social issues
are studied by close reference to selected authors
and their contemporary period of history.
Although specific topics may vary, the main
themes of study for the Greek section revolve
around Athenian society, the Homeric epics, Greek
Tragedy and History. The Roman section covers the
Augustan age, Roman epic and Roman society.
In order to study this subject, students should have a genuine interest in
history and literature. They should have a social awareness as is cultivated by
the study of Religious Studies and English Literature in particular. The concept
and use of source material as promoted in History is also a valuable addition to
a student of Classics.
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.
