Pupils at Key Stage 2 must study a foreign language, but this can include Latin or ancient Greek, not just modern languages.
Why study Latin ?
We offer FREE training for primary teachers/assistants to learn to teach either the Minimus course or Maximum Classics - no previous Latin knowledge is required.
Classics has something for everyone and for all abilities at secondary.
Latin/Greek can be taught in all key stages and exams are available at GCSE and A Level, as well as an entry level Latin qualification. Both meet the language requirement for the EBacc.
Classics and Ancient History stimulate interests in many areas including history and literature and can be taken up at any level.
At KS3 we work with English, History or MFL departments to introduce Classics clubs, modules of myth or epic, Greek drama & theatre, Language clubs or ancient history topics.
We offer FREE training for teachers/assistants to learn to teach Latin, Ancient Greek, Classical Civilisation or Ancient History - no previous classical knowledge is required
Uniquely, in Liverpool our Network also organizes an Ancient Greek Academy, run jointly with the University of Liverpool.
Any pupil (Year 9 and above) in the area can attend the classes, held at a local school on term time Saturday mornings and learn Ancient Greek from beginners to GCSE and A level. The course is free for state school pupils.

Apply for the School Direct programme jointly run through Hope University and Liverpool College to teach Latin and Classical Civilization. Subject specialism is taught in house and tailored to trainees needs.
The School Direct teacher training programme allows postgraduate trainees to work closely with a school to gain a teaching qualification, while still having the benefits of university support and study.
