Guide to Setting up Classics: Most of the schools that apply for Classics for All funding are new to classics, so in 2015 we commissioned Steve Hunt, a university lecturer in Classics Education at Cambridge and classics teacher, to write a guide on how to get started.
Grants Programme Update: Classics for All has recently started to accept applications throughout the year and there is no sign that interest in the fund is abating. Since our announcement of the last round of 19 grants in June, we have awarded an additional £62k to 24 projects to support Classics development, bringing the total awarded this year so far to around £137k.
Announcements: Annual grants round up and the launch of CfA's online journal, Ad Familiares.
Letter from the Director: We have dedicated a good portion of this newsletter to describe the grants awarded by Classics for All in the second tranche for 2016. These 24 grants tell the story about what schools need to get Latin and other classical subjects going in their schools – it may be £180 for a specific teacher training day, or £15,000 over several years to establish a regional classics network reaching dozens of schools and thousands of pupils.
