Latin

During this course students encounter, and develop an appreciation of, Roman literature in both poetry and prose; they are provided with an exciting opportunity to get to grips with real, un-adapted Latin by studying some of the great texts of Western literature, such as Virgil’s Aeneid or Livy’s histories, in their original form.

Latin is brought to life for the girls through innovative and stimulating teaching strategies, as well as creative projects. 

Challenge & Extension: Girls are always encouraged to challenge themselves in a variety of ways: English into Latin composition is offered as an extension activity and girls are given the tools they need to stretch their grammatical knowledge and understanding. Students also have the opportunity of attending Greek Club and Latin Prose Composition Club.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
