Latin is the language spoken by the ancient Romans who lived in Italy and created an Empire all over Europe about 2,000 years ago.

Latin is interesting and enjoyable for its own sake, but we study it because it:

  • Boosts our English vocabulary

  • Helps us to learn modern languages like French, Italian and Spanish which are based on Latin

  • Helps us think logically

  • Opens up the history of Europe

 All Year 8, 9 and 10 pupils have the opportunity to study Latin. You can study it throughout the school at every level.  There is even a trip to Italy where you can see the Roman ruins!
