Latin is a core subject in the first three years and is streamed in years 8 and 9, after which it becomes a popular GCSE option. At A level we have a pleasing number of takers, most of whom achieve grade A and many go on to read Classics at Oxbridge and other universities.
Greek is taught from year 9 as an extra subject for able linguists. Several pupils continue to GCSE level every year and there is a small but constant number of candidates up to A level. Accelerated courses are possible for years 10 to sixth form.
Classical Civilisation is an option for a small number of pupils in year 9 and thereafter for any pupil who wishes to choose it for GCSE and A Level. We have enthusiastic mixed ability groups and several pupils choose each year to continue at university.
St Mary’s School Ascot is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
