The School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology has been awarded funding to enhance the teaching of Latin and Greek in schools on Merseyside.
Classics for All has provided funding to offer between one and six hours of teaching per week of Latin or Greek in schools that do not teach the subjects currently, or have limited provision.
Dr Amy Coker, John Percival Postgate University Teacher in Greek and Latin, who is leading the project, said: “This funding will enable the University to reach out to schools that don’t have the opportunity to teach Greek and Latin. Classical subjects like Latin and Greek provide rich educational and cultural benefits, and also give pupils a taste of the excitement of studying the ancient world.”
Classics for All is a newly-created charity that wants to see an increase in the number of pupils taking GCSE and A level in Classical subjects (Latin, Greek, Classical Civilisation, Ancient History) and also seeks to bring about a cultural change in schools so that Classical subjects become commonly available in every school’s curriculum.
Teachers, academics and supporters of Classics for All believe that broadening access to Latin and Greek will enhance the confidence and ambition of state educated pupils, as well as improve grades in English, History and Modern Languages.
