Classical Civilisation and Ancient History trip to Greece

Just before the half term Xaverian Classics and Ancient History students set out for four days in Athens and Delphi. They visited the magnificent temple of the Parthenon and the acropolis citadel and some of the world’s finest archaeological museums. The temperature was 27C and the students bathed in sunshine as they visited the very cradle of democracy.

They then moved out of the city to see the sacred ancient site of Delphi set high up in the mountains. The views were breath-taking both from the hotel and aloft in the classical athletics’ stadium. We all enjoyed some of the finest Greek cuisine and a visit to some charming artisan shops. Educational and enlightening but most of all one last blast of summer before the winter sets in. All for a very reasonable price too! Alison Hall our Head of Politics also went on the trip. She said, “It was great to see Greece but most importantly the students had a great experience and it really brought their studies to life”

Xaverian College is one of a small number of colleges that offer both Classical Civilisation and Ancient History together and we have excellent results and progression rates for students who study these subjects. A third of our successful Oxbridge candidates studied Classics. To find out more check out our latest prospectus or the course section of the website.
