Warwick Classics Network receives the support of the A. G. Leventis Foundation

The A. G. Leventis Foundation is to support the work of the Warwick Classics Network and their work to further encourage the teaching of Classical Civilisation and Ancient History in schools across the UK, and especially in Warwickshire and Coventry.


The Warwick Classics Network is the umbrella for all engagement activity undertaken by Warwick linked to the teaching of Classical Civilisation and Ancient History; including teaching resources, outreach events and school visits.

The Network comprises teachers and academics dedicated to the promotion and support of Classics teaching in the West Midlands. Participants are encouraged to share ideas, experiences, and skills, to be creative in their teaching, and in turn are provided with training and advice to support them.

Response to Media Events

In the light of today’s BBC documentary about the group chat case in which a group of students were targeted with violent threats and hate speech, the Department would like to reiterate our united opposition to this unacceptable behaviour, and our deep sympathy and support for the students who were targeted by these posts. Back in February we indicated our concerns about this case in a letter to the Vice Chancellor, and we are pleased that the University’s disciplinary procedures are now the subject of an independent review. As a Department, staff and students work closely together to reaffirm the values of equality, diversity and respect; and we are jointly committed to creating a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all.
