Whether you are looking to enrich the study of GCSE Classical Civilisations and Ancient History, or looking to start a Latin after-school club, we have plenty of resources and workshops to support you.
Explore our resources archive for materials and training opportunities to support the teaching of classical subjects in secondary schools and beyond.
As part of our package of support for schools, we offer a number of workshops that focus on different elements of the history, culture and literature of the ancient world. We are always happy to develop new workshops and talks, so contact us for a session that suits your needs.
Our Hub team can lead workshops for secondary pupils on everything from ancient robots to imperial propaganda. All are suitable for students with no prior experience of studying the ancient world. Some of our most popular workshops have included:
- Power and Propaganda (PDF, 601kB) compares ancient and modern political power and propaganda (KS4-5).
- The Science of Stories project uses ancient classical myths to deepen understanding of scientific concepts (activities suitable for KS3-5).
