Dr Caroline Latham
Caroline studied English at Queen Mary College London, taught drama in London state schools for many years, took Classical Civilisation A Level, learned Greek, enrolled at the OU, and eventually got her PhD at King’s College London last year for an excellent doctorate on translations of Greek drama for the professional stage. She is going to help Arlene Holmes-Henderson and Arlene Holmes Henderson write our book by delving into old textbooks and exam papers for all exam boards since Classical Civilisation and Ancient History qualifications were first introduced!
Nik has just finished his final exams as a student in the Department of Greek and Latin at UCL, and is looking forward to embarking on further Classics studies next year as part of a master’s degree. Apart from enjoying all things Classics, Nik is interested in education and how it could be changed to accommodate more varied aspects of Classics for the benefit of students of all ages. Nik has volunteered as both a Teaching and Administrative Assistant for The Latin Programme for the last three years, and is hoping to bring that experience and enthusiasm to his role as a volunteer for ACE.
Frances studied Classics at St Hilda’s College, Oxford from 1970-1974. For over four decades she has enjoyed teaching Latin, Greek, Classical Civilisation and Philosophy at a variety of schools. Currently she is teaching part time at James Allen’s Girls’ School in London, and is a personal tutor for several PGCE trainee Classics teachers at King’s College London. She is also a governor of JACT Ancient History and Classical Civilisation Summer School, and of St Alfege with St Peter Primary School, Greenwich.
‘I can honestly say that a lifetime (nearly!) spent in the embrace of the ancient classical world has been everything I could wish for. I am making it my mission to do all I can to ensure that everyone has the same opportunity.’
