The Iris Project - Manchester Literacy through Latin

Manchester Literacy through Latin

We are delighted to have teamed up with Manchester University to set up an expansion of our Literacy through Latin scheme in October 2012!


Latin students of the Department of Classics and ancient History, as volunteers, teach Latin to year 7 pupils of Canon Slade Secondary School for one hour a week in the academic year. Latin is approached through the Iris Latin course (, which introduces Latin in a fun and engaging way, through storytelling, games, and interaction, and with specific reference to linguistic skills in English. In the next school year, the project will be opened up to other local schools in the Manchester area.

You can find the University of Manchester's department of Classics and ancient History here, and the University of Manchester School of Education here.

Applications for volunteers for this year are now closed. We will advertise in 2014 for the following year. Interested local schools are invited to get in touch.
