The influence of the classical world is all around us. The Greeks gave us democracy and theatre; the Romans brought us roads and baths. Classical Civilisation gives you the opportunity to explore how the classical world was shaped and how it has influenced the modern world.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Studying the English language is not only fascinating but also enables students to develop a wide range of writing skills which are invaluable for both further study and future employment. Accent, dialect, how language is changing and how we first learn language are only part of the subject. Students also have the opportunity to write creatively and to investigate topics of personal interest such as gender, technology and power.

HISTORY

A LEVEL (EDEXCEL)

To make sense of the world we live in it is essential to understand key events, individuals, movements and conflicts that have shaped history.
