Welsh classics students hard at work

Working in conjunction with the Classics Departments of the University of Bristol and Swansea University, the Welsh Classics Network aims to support and promote classics in state schools across the country.  One of our primary aims is to develop teaching resources in the Welsh language.

Our network is expanding and we support schools across Wales.  Swansea University’s classics students teach in local primary schools as part of the undergraduate course.

Cardiff High School is among a growing number of secondary schools beginning to teach Latin of classics as part of its literacy or humanities curriculum. Crickhowell High School now runs a Greek club and Ysgol Gwynllyw has begun teaching classics through the medium of Welsh.

“The most thrilling part of this project is the response from the students. They love it!”: Wyedean School, Chepstow.
