The Classical Association is an educational charity, dedicated to making classical subjects accessible to the broadest audience. We represent everyone who has an interest in the ancient world and our members are diverse – from amateur archaeologists to career classicists, to students starting out, trainee teachers and anyone who wants to learn about the ancient past.
The Classical Association runs a substantial grants programme; sponsors the UK’s largest annual classics conference; publishes some of the leading journals in the discipline, as well as a magazine which supports classics in schools; and runs a variety of engagement activities for teachers, schools and the wider public.
We aim to put teachers, scholars, students and communities in dialogue and to promote access to the classical world in schools, universities and beyond.
We run a substantial grants programme for schools and HE, and also annually sponsor a number of prizes, including the prestigious Classical Association Prize, awarded in recognition of outstanding contributions made in raising the profile of Classics in the public eye, and annual CA Teaching Awards, designed to recognise outstanding teaching and innovative pre-university education initiatives. We also sponsor the UK’s largest annual classics conference; publish some of the leading journals in the discipline (Classical Quarterly, Classical Review and Greece & Rome; and publish a magazine (Omnibus) which supports classics in schools. We run a variety of engagement activities for teachers, schools and the wider public; recently these have included story and photograph competitions.
