From 2016, all girls will study Latin from Year 5 at Oxford High Junior School and in Year 7 at the Senior School. At Oxford High School, we use the Cambridge Latin Course to begin with. This exciting course follows the life of Pompeian citizens in the months before the great eruption of Mount Vesuvius which destroyed their city. It uses archaeological evidence discovered at Pompeii to give pupils a fascinating insight into the Roman world. Book 2 sees the story move to Roman Britain and Alexandria. In both books there is an abundance of reading material, cultural topics and grammar. We also add a more traditional approach to grammar learning and some sentence writing. You can visit the CLC website (see Website Resources) if you want to find out more about the course.
