Classics for All is a national charity championing the teaching of Classics. Classics for All's mission is to introduce the Classics (Latin, Ancient Greek, Classical Civilisation and Ancient History) in state schools by providing funding, free teacher training, advice and support. Since 2010, nationally CfA has trained over 2,000 teachers and introduced classics both on and off the curriculum to over 50,000 pupils in 850 primary and secondary schools, many in areas of socio-economic deprivation. Classics for All has been supporting the Bristol Classics Hub since its launch in September 2016.
