The Course

This GCSE requires a love of ancient history and a desire to compare and contrast the lives and politics of the ancients to our own. If you feel a thrill when you hear names like Xerxes, Caesar or Cleopatra or have always wondered what it would have been like to fight at Thermopylae, this might just be the course for you.
