Classical Civilisation is a unique blend of academic disciplines. It draws together the study of mythology and the epic tradition together with history and politics.

Texts are studied in translation, so that this subject may serve as a complement or alternative to the study of Latin and Ancient Greek.

Students who take this course at St James, whether at GCSE or A Level, have the opportunity to engage with the human achievements that continue to be enormously influential. Along the way they will refine their skills in reading and extended writing, so that their studies will help to support their attainment in English, History and other areas of the curriculum.
