GCSE Classical Civilisation

Main page content (1 column)

The Subject

Studying Classical Civilisation at GCSE level is a good way to  get a feel of the ancient world and some understanding of the cultures which have had such a profound influence on Western civilisation. It is also great fun. We offer both the OCR and AQA syllabuses. You don't need to read Latin or Greek but you do need to enjoy reading.

The Course

The course comprises four units which are taken over two years.  We study Pompeii and selected books of Homer's Odyssey in the  first year. In the second year, we study leisure and society in ancient Rome which includes gladiators and going to the baths.  We also prepare our controlled assessment in the second year which is either on drama and literature or Ancient Art.
