Classical Civilisation

Classical Civilisation appeals to students interested in History, Literature and History of Art. The course requires no previous Classical study. 

Epic poetry and greek tragedy are studied through a variety of classical works including The Illiad and the plays of Aeschylus & Sophocles. Students also  gain an awareness of the distinctive moral and social values of the classical world in comparison to those of more recent times, whilst developing skills of reasoned argument in historical analysis, literary criticism and aesthetic appreciation. 

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.
