Yr 12 student

"I am studying Classical Civilisations, English Literature, History and Sociology, and I aim to become a lecturer or archaeologist after studying Classical Civilisations and Archaeology at University.

I like the close-knit community spirit at Coombe; everyone helps each other as much as they can. This support from teachers and students has given me the confidence to aim higher, knowing that it's all within my grasp."

Head of Department: Mrs C Cannon

“Classical Civilisation offers you an exciting and unique opportunity to delve into the classical world of Greece and Rome. Classics students have enquiring minds, ask questions of evidence and attempt to piece together the distant past using the literature and artefacts available to us. Classics is highly thought of by universities both in terms of preparation for research and essay based subjects. Classics is a perfect blend between literature and history and asks students to make links between our modern world and the ancient world of democracy, heroism and warfare”.
