2 years ago, a group of Y7 and Y8 Gifted and Talented students were invited to take part in an extra-curricular GCSE in Classical Civilisation. Each week, they attended a lesson after school to learn about Ancient Rome, Sparta, Sophocles’ Antigone as well as Homer’s Odyssey. For two years, students took time out of their week to come and explore the ancient world.
This summer, they received their results. Every student achieved a grade that reflected their hard work and dedication, with four students achieving an overall Grade A on their GCSE. Other notable performances came from Alice Aucott, Grace McCaffery, Emily O’Boyle, Charlotte Green and Hafsa Yusufi who all received A* grades for individual units. Well done to all students!
