Classics A Level at Tiffin School

Course description

Dead languages are very much alive at Tiffin and have a solid presence within the Sixth Form. Examination results are very good indeed and the Department is proud of the steady stream of students that go on to study Classical subjects at University level. Both Latin and Classical Greek offer students a chance to explore the language, literature and civilisation of the Ancient World in breadth and depth. The achievements of the Greek s and Romans have had an enormous influence on nearly every aspect of our own culture and students will find the study of

Classical texts both provocative and challenging. Latin and Greek are certainly demanding A Level subjects, but ones which are endlessly rewarding. They can–
and are– studied in combination with just about every subject offered in the Sixth Form at Tiffin. They complement both Arts and Sciences. In the Sixth Form, students of
Latin and/or Greek have the opportunity to study prose and verse literature in the original language, as well as building on linguistic skills acquired at GCSE. Small class
sizes mean that students enjoy considerable support and individual attention, as well as tutorial style lessons. The courses are enhanced by a vibrant programme of extra
-curricular activities including: visits to the theatre both in and outside London, visits to museum collections, lectures, and trips to classical sites abroad.
