Iris Classics Summer School: 26th – 28th August

We are delighted to be offering our sixth annual Classics Summer School this August at the Iris Classics Centre at Cheney School in Oxford. It will take place on the mornings of 26, 27 and 28th August. This year the summer school will be themed on transformation myths!

The format for each day will be as follows: (Latin ages 10 – 11 and Greek 10 – 11 are now fully booked)

9 – 10.30 – Latin (ages 7 – 9); Latin (ages 10 – 11); Greek (ages 7 – 9); Greek (ages 10 – 11)

10.30 – 11.15 – refreshments and activities

11.15 – 12.45 –  Latin (ages 7 – 9); Latin (ages 10 – 11); Greek (ages 7 – 9); Greek (ages 10 – 11)

The classes will be run by experienced teachers and will include activities as well as language learning. They will all be aimed at complete beginners. There will be themed activity stalls and refreshments between the morning classes.

Class sizes will be capped at eight this year, and social distancing and other measures will be in place in order to protect both staff and visitors. A detailed risk assessment will be sent to all parents who book places.

If you would like your son/daughter to attend the summer school, you can book to attend by emailing and stating name, age, and which language class he/she would like to join for the duration of the summer school. Attendees need to choose one language they would like to learn for the duration of the school – either Latin or Greek – as each class builds on the previous one.

In order to help cover our costs for this event, we are charging £20 per child for the summer school – please do get in touch if this cost is likely to be prohibitive. You can pay online at or pay on the door on the first morning of the summer school. If you feel you can pay more than £20 to help cover costs, we are always grateful for any donation.

Please feel welcome to get in touch with any questions.

Please note that we may need to cancel the summer school at short notice if government advice changes.
