Boys start Latin in Year 4 and are soon happily immersed in the antics of Minimus the Mouse and Vibrissa the Cat in Barbara Bell’s brilliant Minimus course, which lasts right up to the early stages of Year 7.
Boys are encouraged to develop at a pace that suits them and we have achieved some excellent results at Common Entrance & Scholarship level. For some, the key interest is learning about mythology and Roman life; for others, the challenge of the language is what spurs them on . For all, though, we aim to make our Latin classes lively and fun: disce Latinum – optimum est! (Learn Latin – it’s great!).
