Evening Courses

Developed and run by former parents for former parents eight years ago, places on these term time evening courses are now often available to current parents, alumni and current and former staff. The classes are taught by some of Latymer’s most experienced and popular teachers with the emphasis on learning in a relaxed environment with no homework!

Places are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis and courses can fill up quickly. A course usually last for one term and the cost includes wine, soft drinks and snacks. Participants meet in the Latymer Staff Lounge from 6.30pm and classes are from 7pm to 8.30pm in nearby classrooms. Twelve week courses are £230 and ten week courses £200. All profits go to supporting Latymer’s means tested bursary programme.

Subjects for the Autumn Term 2018 include:

  • History of Art – Renaissance Architecture
  • History of Art –  An Introduction to Modern Art
  • Economics – How International economics affects us all 

Courses for 2019 may include Life Drawing, English Literature, Politics, Economics, History and History of Art.

Updates on places available on these courses can be found on this website page and in the Head's newsletter to parents of current pupils.
