The Home of Classics Teachers
Thousands of members, and many thousands of resources shared freely by those members.

The Classics Library is the site for all Classics teachers and teachers-to-be. Founded in 2008 by Steve Jenkin, it hosts thousands of resources, all of which have been generously added to the ‘library’ by its own members. It is a hub for Classics teachers and academics, promoting events around the UK and often overseas, and providing a large network where everyone is welcome to ask for advice and support, and others are happy to help.
Many schools in need of a Classics teacher find them through the Classics Library. With over two thousand members, the vast majority of whom are practising teachers in the UK, an advertisement here targets perfectly the most desirable audience.
Placing an advertisement is easy, handled personally, dealt with efficiently, suited to your own specifications, and very economical. A single and very reasonable fee allows you to place an advertisement of any style, of your chosen content, and for as long as you would like.
The Calendar hosts events for students and teachers of all Classical subjects, such as lectures by academics suited to sixth form study, university open days and other outreach events, and INSET opportunities for teachers. There is plenty going on for Classicists around the country!
The Classical Anthology and OBP Commentaries
The Classical Anthology was founded by Jane Mason. It hosts a collection of passages and translations of a wide range of Greek and Latin texts, from classical to modern times. All passages are contributed by people like you, academics, teachers, students at university and school. There are contributions from well-known classicists such as Mary Beard, Llewelyn Morgan, and Tom Holland.
In association with Open Book Publishers, the Classics Library hosts four commentaries on classical texts, recently prescribed for study at A Level. They are absolutely free to use, and these versions allow teachers and their students to leave comments, to interact with each other and with the authors of the commentaries. Teachers have used them as classroom teaching tools, homework assessment material, and more.
