About Classics for All
Classics For All aims to raise funds to support the teaching of classics – Latin, Greek, classical civilisation and ancient history – in UK state schools, many in areas of high socio-economic deprivation.
They offer funding to both primary and secondary schools, often to introduce classics onto the curriculum for the first time. Since 2010, Classics for All has established a national reputation, raising over £3.5m from individual donors, trusts and foundations, and corporate sponsors.
These funds have allowed Classics for All to reach over 1,000 schools, train 3,600 teachers, and benefit more than 95,000 pupils. Classics for All works through 17 regional classics networks to target schools in areas of low social mobility. This ensures that pupils in schools with no tradition of classics benefit from the programme.
