Ancient History across the curriculum.
Key Stage 3
At Key Stage 3, Ancient History is incorporated into History lessons where possible. In Year 7, students complete a unit on Italy which includes the study of Ancient Roman society, the army and entertainment (such as the gladiators and chariot racing!). Year 8 study the rise of democracy in England and make parallels to the Roman government. Finally, Year 9 look at heroes and villains throughout the ages, from Hannibal to Jack the Ripper!
Key Stage 4
The OCR Ancient History GCSE focuses upon fascinating characters in the ancient world, such as Alexander the Great, Cleopatra and the evil kings of Rome!
Key Stage 5
Windsor Sixth Form offers ‘A’ level Classical Civilisation. We will study Greek and Roman society, values and history by studying the epic poems The Iliad and the Aeneid and as well as the life of Augustus, Rome’s first emperor.
The department has made links with the University of Birmingham, meaning that our GCSE and A level students have the chance to attend Saturday workshops and seminars at the University.
