February 2016 front cover

A Letter from the Chairman: In 2015 CfA continued its planned growth, awarding £150k in grants to schools and continuing to manage the 'Capital Classics' project (of which more in this e-newsletter). The number of schools we have supported now exceeds 350 (including the 50 schools involved with Capital Classics).

A Letter from the Director: CfA's Centurion drive is moving quickly apace as we added 75 new Centurions (giving £100 or more) during 2015. Can you help us add to that number this year? We will be publishing the 2016 donor recognition list in our spring 2016 newsletter.

Grant Programme Update: We will announce our grants awards in the next issue. Meanwhile, Peter Olive reveals plenty of exciting developments from our London project 'Capital Classics'.

Featured Classics Resource: Catharine Edwards, President of the Society for the Promotion of Roman Studies: 

"The Roman Society has for some years worked in partnership with Classics for All, promoting knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, Roman culture and Latin language in secondary schools. In particular, the Roman Society offers grants for the purchase of textbooks. Many schools, whose teachers have received training thanks to Classics for All, have been equipped with vital teaching materials by the Roman Society."
