Y12 and 13 Classical Civilisation Tour of Rome
Date: 20th Feb 2017
In February 2017 King David High School ran a trip to Rome as part of their new A-Level in Classical Civilisations. This trip comprised of reviewing key aspects of material covered in the A-Level and included visiting Ancient Roman and Jewish Archaeological sites.
Year 12 Student, Ria Cohen, described the trip as ‘one of the most educational and enjoyable trips I've ever had with school. Learning about the Ancient Romans was extremely interesting especially with references to Judaism for example our trip to Ostia Antica which included visiting a 2000 year old shul. This really is a trip I will never forget.’
Since beginning A-Level Classical Civilisations in 2014 King David has been successful in sending two students to read Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at Oxford University.
This recent trip to Rome only further supports our students in helping them to achieve their aspirations in applying for competitive degrees as well as being an enjoyable experience.
