Bloomsbury Classics: FREE titles (including OCR textbooks) and more!

Bloomsbury Classics titles is partnering with Classoos during school closures and offering free digital access to the school textbooks – this includes the new de Romanis and also the OCR textbooks

As well as this the schools that have already adopted a textbook through them can also request access to an online pdf by emailing:

There are also the Companion websites for the OCR books and the new de Romanis book (currently live) that provide additional online activities for students and teachers. 

The COVID19 support page for schools and academics is here:

The de Romanis companion website hosts blog posts from Katharine Radice and the author team – the latest one is about distance learning and how ways in which teachers can inspire Classics learning at home. Read it here:

The culture and context materials in de Romanis offer a ready-made set of resources for teachers who are keen to adapt their teaching plans to the challenges of remote schooling.  Students of all ages, regardless of their knowledge of Latin, can be fired up with interest in any of the twelve free-standing culture and context themes the course contains.  The culture and context section for each chapter is supported by a raft of online resources, such as worksheets, video links and online quizzes.
