Teaching Hours

Allocation of teaching hours may start at any point in the academic year but we ask for a minimum commitment of one full school term.

Please note that demand to participate in the project is high. The earlier you can register your interest, the better we will be able to accommodate your requests.

Other ways to get involved

We are equally keen to support your existing teaching of Classical subjects.  Whether you want to increase uptake of Classical subjects at your school, enrich the learning experience of GCSE and A-Level students, or give A-Level students a taste of University studies, we are happy to help and establish links with your school.

We also offer a series of general or subject-specific talks, seminars and workshops on aspects of the Classical world on demand (prices are available upon request).
