‘I know it seems odd to advocate teaching Latin when some of the country’s schools are currently accused of failing to teach English. But I still think that an elementary grounding in the classics makes all languages easier to learn, and in the end it helps pupils with a huge range of other subjects. And best of all it opens up an extraordinary, rich and potent ancient world that has had a huge effect on the way we live now.’
