Wilson's School

Classics: Support

Extra-curricular and enrichment

The department likes to take one major visit abroad per year, together with smaller visits in this country. In recent years we have gone to Italy, Greece and Turkey. Plans are being made for a week-long visit to Italy in the spring of 2017, including visits to Rome, Pompeii, Vesuvius and Herculaneum. We also plan to watch a football match in Rome, go to gladiator school and make pizza and ice-cream.

In the local area we make regular theatre and museum visits, as well as an annual appearance at the local Classical quiz with neighbouring schools. From time to time we make a three day visit to Hadrian's Wall.

There is a Classics Club, at which speakers lead discussions on Classical matters in a relaxed manner.
