Case Study Blackpool Classics Hub: Classics at Blackpool Sixth Form has been a high profile subject in the college for some years. Numbers studying A-level Classical Civilisation are consistently high at around 100-150 with excellent examination grades to accompany.

Grant Programme Update: Our ambition to establish regional support networks or hubs to encourage the sharing of approaches to Classics teaching is gradually building momentum. 

Why Classics - Nicholas Parsons CBE: It was a privilege for a few of us at Classics for All to have an opportunity to sit in the Penguin studios last year with radio and television presenter and actor Nicolas Parsons, to hear him talk about the value of Classics, the impact of Classics on his life, and to hear him read a passage (in translation) from Ovid, one of his favourite authors. 

Letter from the Director: Classics for All is expanding! Thanks to growing demand from schools we are now accepting grant applications year round; in order to support this internally we have increased our staffing and are currently looking for a small office space in central London.
