Classical Civilisation A-Level *FEES PAYABLE* at St Mary's Senior School

Course description

Aims of the Course • To give students the opportunity to study elements of the history, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, and social history of the Classical world (this is done by reading literature in translation and by looking at material evidence and, wherever possible, we visit museums and attend performances of Greek plays to reinforce our studies and take trips to classical sites abroad). • To develop awareness of the similarities and differences between the Classical World and later times, and thus to gain a sensitivity to past societies whose spiritual, cultural and moral values and priorities contrast with those of the modern western world. • To teach students to research into and evaluate evidence, and to develop critical skills and responses when confronted by different types of literature and evidence.
