Latin at The Grange School

Course description

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.

course structure

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.

Entry requirements

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.
