Year 12 & Year 13 Classics Trip to UCL Theatre and British Museum

The Classics Department is on the move again!

The Sixth Form had a fabulous time in London, visiting the British Museum and then watching Euripides' 'Electra' at the Bloomsbury Theatre.

As always, the British Museum was wonderful, though much debate was had as to the legitimacy of the Parthenon Sculptures still being in England. We also had a fascinating insight into how to date free-standing sculpture.

The performance not only provided valuable reference points for the study of Greek Theatre (part of the A Level Classical Civilisation syllabus) but also had one of our very own ex-students in the cast, A Level Latinist Anisa Khorassani.
