Classics has a knack of engaging pupils in surprising ways: every year a number of pupils from each year group find themselves drawn into the unusual activity of performing Greek or Latin pieces in a Classical Reading competition against other schools.

The requirement to pronounce the language accurately while also communicating its meaning and style in a convincing way is taxing, yet very satisfying when achieved. This has been a tradition at Bryanston developed by previous Heads of Classics John Griffin and James Malden, and continues with success into the 21st century.  (See Classics News for a report on the latest competition.)
