Overview

The ancient languages Latin and Greek have rigorous but deeply logical structures, making them challenging but all the more rewarding. The Classical education is a key aspect of the original St James vision and offers a taste of supremely ordered grammatical systems which naturally discipline the mind. Furthermore it provides a worldview that complements and completes the less idealistic worldview pupils may pick up from other sources today. We would like to think that our pupils will develop a respect for and an interest in other cultures than their own, and that this will influence their attitudes and their appreciation of life.
