What will you be working towards?
||GCE A/AS Level or Equivalent
Classical Civilisation gives students the unique opportunity to explore the history and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. These ancient societies remain incredibly relevant to the modern world. Classical Civilisation is far more than simply 'history' from a long time ago: it combines the study of art and architecture; political, military, and social history; morality and philosophy; and some of the world's greatest ever literature. Broadly, students look at the culture of ancient Greece in year one, and of ancient Rome in year two.
