Students will learn to read and understand Latin, acquiring a vocabulary of about 200 words a year. They will learn grammar structures similar and different to languages they already know; translate increasingly complex texts; and learn skills in comprehension and literature analysis. 

We expand their cultural understanding of classical civilisation by reading and discussing texts or sources on a variety of cultural topics.  

Students are also encouraged to be reflective in their learning, identifying patterns, similarities and differences between Latin and English, or students’ native languages. This serves to increase their vocabulary and understanding of grammar structures in English and other languages. 

Students will therefore gain many transferable skills which will help them in future studies of English, other languages, history and classical subjects.
