Classics schools and outreach hub

Resources for students, teachers and anyone interested in the ancient world of the Greeks and Romans

Engagement with schools and outreach work is a vital part of what we do in the Department of Classics. Find out more about what we have to offer, from online resources to campus visits and school talks.

Drawing on our expertise in language and literature, history, archaeology and philosophy, we offer a range of activities and resources to help you open up and explore the classical past. Classics is for everyone! Whether you are studying or teaching a classical subject at school, or exploring the classical world independently, we have something to help and interest you. Here you’ll find a host of resources, many of which are designed to support and reveal new perspectives on key classical topics in the A-Level syllabus. Resources include videos of hot topics from our most popular taster talks, downloadable handouts full of key facts and materials, and information about how to arrange a visit to your school from one of our members of staff or a trip to our campus. You’ll also find our recommendations for great Classics resources and activities that are available online for free, as well as our favourite reading suggestions, and our “Top Fives” to keep you entertained as you explore the weird and wonderful world of Classics in popular culture.
