Introduction to the Classics Department

Wolverhampton Grammar School is the only independent school in Wolverhampton to offer Classics. We offer Latin at GCSE and Classical Civilisation and Latin at A Level.

Our Classics Department promotes the interest in, understanding and appreciation of the ancient worlds through its language, history and culture. Although academically focussed, the department aims to ignite intellectual curiosity in the ancient and modern world.

Classics is really brought to life at Wolverhampton Grammar School with students visiting several sites of archaeological interest and study, as well as whole class participation in activities like reading Latin plays out loud. Year 8 students are even tutored on different combinations of gladiatorial combat!

Staff make use of 21st century technology including incorporating the use of Apps and iPADS throughout lessons.

For those interested in extra-curricular ways to get involved in Classics the department also runs  Greek and Archaeology Clubs, and there may by opportunities to visit ancient sites overseas.

Students have gone on to study Classics at Cambridge as well as teaching and research careers.
