Cambridge is committed to bringing the study of Greek and Latin to a yet wider and more diverse range of students. We need a properly funded access and outreach programme to achieve our aim of widening participation and ensuring gender and race equality.

For the discipline to continue to flourish and inspire in the 21st century we need to ensure that the new generation of classicists come from ever more diverse geographical, ethnic and educational backgrounds. 

We want to build on and expand the excellent work done to date, building links with schools attracted into Classics by the Cambridge Schools Classics Projects, and encouraging schools that do not yet offer classical subjects in sixth form.

  • A gift of £320k will fund an Access and Outreach Officer for 5 years

The Cambridge Latin Course has revolutionised how Latin is taught in schools and the range of students to whom Latin is accessible. The ‘Green and Yellow’ Greek and Latin Classics series and Ingo Gildenhard’s Open Access online commentaries have turned reading school and university examination texts into an exciting interpretative adventure.
