Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Latin is becoming more and more popular again and many schools have already given their students the opportunity to study Latin as part of the curriculum. When schools want to introduce this subject they sometimes face a number of difficulties: Who can teach it? What should the curriculum look like? What are the aims and purposes of Latin?

Our consultants will help you to make Latin work for your school.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Latin is becoming an increasingly desirable subject for school leaders to put on the curriculum as evidenced by the addition of Latin to the Russell Groups (2011) preferred ‘A’ Level choices.

How users/participants can evaluate success

Uptake of Latin and parent feedback.
