Classics

Learning Latin and Greek, understanding the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. At Rokeby our Classics teaching encompasses the language and also elements of history and culture.

Boys gain an understanding of the foundations of civilisations that have had such a profound influence on the modern world.

All boys are given an introduction to the ancient Greek and Roman world in Year 3. They begin learning Latin in Year 5 and continue through to Year 8 when they sit the Common Entrance (CE) or a Scholarship Exam. Greek is taught in Year 8.

There are regular trips to enrich the boys’ learning.
