Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss C. Watson

"... Classics I loved because of the stories." 

Steven Adams - My Life, My Fight

In this course we study the influence Classical Greece and Rome has had on other cultures across time. We look at Plato's philosophies surrounding the different forms of love, what is the "perfect" form of something, and how Roman emperors used images of themselves as the first instance of #promo4promo.

In the external exams we look at the messages communicated in Greek and Roman art, and the epic poem, The Aeneid, where we follow the Roman hero Aeneas as he struggles between his desires and the will of the gods, in order to fulfil his destiny.  

If you're interested in the myths, the art, and the general world of Ancient Greece and Rome, Classics is for you!
