Latin

Latin, far from being a dead language, is a thriving and indeed growing subject, not only at Calday, but nationally.

The department is particularly proud of its successes, with the school’s Head Boys generally taking Latin; academically, with a healthy number progressing on to Oxbridge; and, as examples of achievement, with the percentage of A grades at AS level over 50% above the national average, and at A2 level nearly 75% above the national average, both representing the best subject results at Calday in the last academic year.
