School Classics Tours

Study the Classics in a range of exciting destinations

Here in the UK we are lucky to have such a choice of great museums that schools can visit, and world institutions such as the British Museum are a great place for schools to study Classics. However, for the ultimate learning experience, every school that is serious about teaching their students about the ancient world should think about offering a school trip to one or more of the European cities where evidence from the Classical period can still be seen and experienced.

Despite Classics not being considered a foundation subject within the National Curriculum, every school pupil will encounter the Greeks or Romans, whether through historical study, art history or language, and many secondary schools choose to allocate time for Classical Studies.

Best Locations for a School Classics Tour

School Classics Tours offer students a memorable opportunity to experience the ancient, traditional and modern day cultures, in close proximity. In Italy, The Colosseum and the Forum sit in the heart of Rome, and the twin sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum are a short hop from a base in Naples or Sorrento. In Greece, The Acropolis and Parthenon sit in the heart of the Greek capital, Athens. Italy and Greece are the most popular destinations for students studying Classics but schools can visit other locations such as the island of Sicily, the South of France and Turkey.

Classics and the School Curriculum

Ancient Greek and Roman ruins can be seen in the heart of modern day Greece and Italy, and are woven into the language, literature and art. These two countries once dominated this part of the world, and gave rise to what we now think of as civilisation and democracy. Their wealth and knowledge was displayed in the stone theatres and temples that can still be seen to this day. Schools could visit these locations many times over and never run out of different ways of engaging their students through different aspects of the Classics curriculum.
