Classics has always played a key role in the Milbourne Lodge education. We focus on a highly traditional style of teaching, giving all our pupils a thorough grammatical grounding in both languages - knowledge that also goes a long way towards improving their command of English and French.
Greek is reserved for the scholarship forms, but Latin is taught to every class for all five years at the school. Numerous former pupils have gone on to read classics at Oxbridge, while many boys in recent years have won prestigious awards to public schools, such as the Anna Shaw prize at Eton and the Ben Scholarship to Charterhouse.
In addition to the two languages, Ancient History and mythology are taught separately in the lower years.
