I have been a qualified Classics teacher for ten years and have worked in both the maintained and private sectors. I have held the position of Head of Classics in three consecutive schools. I have also taught several other humanities subjects over the years, including RS, History and English. I have taught all of these to both GCSE and A level/IB. The resources I offer have been over a period of ten years. They are all engaging for young learners and contain relevant challenging questions.
