Our Mission

Inspiring through Accessibility 

To inspire as many students as possible, who previously felt limited, to venture further into Classics. We want to encourage our students to take their Classical Education to the next stage be it through a degree, another online course, or personal education. We want to offer our students the tools to find the right means for them.

We recognised that for many students who are not offered Classical Subjects in their school they rely on outreach programmes and summer schools to access Classical Education. We felt passionately that those students should not miss out on those opportunities. By widening participation in this way we have created a sustainable platform where this education is not only readily available but possible.

Our Mission

To inspire as many students as possible, who previously felt limited, to explore a full breadth of subjects in their education. We want to encourage our students to take their education to the next stage be it through a degree, another online course, or personal education. We want to offer our students the tools to find the right means for them.

We recognised that in the UK and globally, there are some subjects that are often considered elitist because they are rarely offered as compulsory components of national curriculums. And so, outreach programmes are quintessential parts of their learning opportunities. We feel passionate that students should not miss out on these subjects and should have access to the fullest education possible.
