Our next GCSE classes in Latin and Classical Greek will be held in London from September 2013. Classes run after school, lasting for one and a half hours, typically from 4.45 to 6.15 pm. Each language involves attending two sessions a week, as well as performing approximately two hours' homework at the weekend.
Classes are held during term time only, and lead, over two years, to GCSE qualifications (OCR Higher Tier). They are intended primarily for children in Years 10 and 11 (14-16 years old), but may also be suitable for sixth form students or gifted Year 9 pupils. No previous knowledge is required.
Regrettably, we do not run classes for adults.
Latin GCSE classes are held at Westminster, Streatham, Lewisham and West Ealing. Greek GCSE classes are held at Westminster. The GCSE courses last six terms, and cost £275 per term. Textbooks are supplied free on loan.
Application forms can be found here. There is a certain amount of bursary funding available on a means-tested basis.
AS and A2 classes in both languages are also offered. A minimum grade B in GCSE is normally required as a condition of enrolment. AS and A2 classes meet twice a week after school for one and a half hours each lesson. A very substantial commitment of time is also needed for homework and private revision.
AS/A2 classes are held at Westminster. The AS and A2 courses require three terms each and cost £315 per term. Textbooks are supplied free on loan.
Application forms can be found here. There is a small amount of bursary funding available on a means-tested basis.
All classes are taught under the direction of Mr Gregory Wilsdon, Head of Classics at Westminster Abbey Choir School and teacher at St Paul's Girls' School, who is the Principal of The Classics Academy, and Dr Jonathan Katz, former Head of Classics at Westminster School.
