Our Curriculum Intent

Curriculum aims - Classics 

Statement of intent 

The Classics department will bring out the best by engaging students with Classics and bringing the ancient world into the present in an exciting and enthusing way. This will allow students to understand their history at a local, national and international level.  

This will enable all our young people to have a coherent knowledge and an understanding of the Ancient Classical world of Greece and Rome, helping students to understand the complexity of people’s lives, complex myths, political theories and philosophy, classical authors and sources and all forms of classical literature. Therefore helping the more able students to extend their knowledge and apply the knowledge of the Classical world to a modern context. 

Classics at Three Rivers Academy encourages all students to think like a Classicist helping students to analyse complex concepts themes and teach them skills to think critically and create clear and coherent arguments. Thinking like a Classicist means we aim to teach students how the Ancient societies of Rome and Greece have shaped our lives and link this to living in modern and culturally diverse society. It will help them become adaptable and to make reasoned arguments based on evidence that lead to clear judgements and evaluations.
