This programme is designed for those who are fascinated by the ancient civilisations of Greece and Rome and keen to develop transferable skills such as critical analysis. Taught by a variety of internationally recognised experts, Ancient History offers the opportunity to study the history of Greece and Rome in the Classical period (600 BCE to 700 CE). Over three years students will delve into the politics, events and developments underpinning their understanding of many aspects of historical societies and, indeed, one’s own culture. Students will explore themes, key periods and problems in Greek and Roman history, such as the emergence (and fall) of democracy and the rise, decline and fall of Empires. Students will build skills and knowledge from day one. In year two, the experience of historical periods will be deepened and widened and students will develop skills in research and concentrate on their individual interests, which will culminate in specialist studies and individual research projects in year three. As they build knowledge and understanding of a formative and fascinating period of world history, students can study in other areas of the curriculum, notably: archaeology, literature, philosophy and language. There is also the possibility of spending a year abroad, experiencing the profound effect these classical cultures have had on history, culture and politics.
