Welcome to Maximum Classics

Interest in Classical civilisation and languages is growing in the state secondary sector. However, despite being included in the list of MFL languages, there is no established route to introducing Latin or Ancient Greek in state primary schools. The Maximum Classics course gives pupils from Years 4-6 the opportunity to learn foundation Latin, and to discover the ‘highlights’ of Classical culture whilst all the time broadening their English vocabulary and cultural capital.

The course is designed to be teachable by incumbent, non-specialist KS2 primary staff after minimal training by a Classics specialist. All classroom-ready plans and materials are available on this site for download. Free in-school training for the course is offered to UK state schools by Classics For AllIf you are interested in the provision of free training for your school, please get in touch using the form below.

I used to teach, don't anymore (only training now) & there's a reason for that. I have so much respect for teachers. Willing to give their all teaching our kids, for little public and political respect & with massive pressure from both authorities and parents. You are loved!

Great training session tonight with fab staff @StJamesCEsth @LDSTEducation and @charlieandrew thanks to @classicsforall - bowled over by your enthusiasm for learning #Latin and exploring word roots even in lockdown. Your kids are lucky to have such great teachers ! #inspirational
