Classics For All

TCA has been awarded a grant for £1500 from Classics for All to further the provision of Latin within the Academy.

At the moment, year 7 and 8 pupils are taught in a carousel of French, Spanish and Latin.

We entered pupils for the GCSE in Latin for the first time in 2019 and are continuing to promote the language with classes in years 9 and 11.

We liaise with tutors at the University of Birmingham and the University of Cambridge who are keen to promote the benefits of a classical education. Research has shown that study of the classics can help to raise attainment in English Language, English Literature and Modern Foreign Languages.

TCA is also taking part in a pilot scheme for the new Latin text book Subura.
