To understand ourselves, and our place in a bicultural society, we need to know about the societies that have laid the foundations for the world in which we live.
Classical studies is the study of the people, places, and events of the classical world and how they influence the modern world.
Classical studies is an interdisciplinary subject: students engage with Literature, Languages, Art, History, Science, Technology, Religion, and Philosophy.
Students explore community, cultural identity, values, and perspectives and think critically about human behaviour and relationships to appreciate the civilisations of ancient Greece and Rome, understand the past and the present, and to imagine possible futures.
