Classical and Pegasus Societies

The Classical Society meets regularly throughout the year and offers talks that encompass the full breadth of classical studies: literature, history, philosophy, art, linguistics, and more besides.

Our talks are generally given by outside speakers, including some of the most distinguished classicists in the UK. We also run a dinner for Eighth Formers studying classical subjects.

While our Classical Society is open to all boys, we also have a junior society, Pegasus, aimed at boys in the Fourth and Fifth Forms. This meets every Tuesday lunchtime to take part in activities and workshops related to the Ancient World or hear talks from older boys studying Classics. Recent sessions include: Babylonian Mathematics, a Roman-Italian café, an introduction to Biblical Hebrew, a workshop on Greek comedy, and Latin Countdown.
