  • What do you mean by classical?
By ‘classical’ we mean the methodology of the Trivium, which seeks to identify appropriate analogies of grammar, dialectic and rhetoric in all subjects and to teach all subjects in a manner consistent with the appropriate stage of development of the child.  We also regard classical education in the context of the classical search for wisdom and virtue through the pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty.  If you would like to understand more about classical education, read Dorothy Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learning.
