Evening Courses

Developed and run by former parents for former parents seven 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 Spring/Summer Term 2018 include:

  • History of Art - High Renaissance/Mannerism
  • European History 1500-1700 
  • English Civil War and the Restoration
  • 19th Century Europe 

Updates on places available on these courses can be found below and in the Head's newsletter.

If you would like to register your interest in a particular subject or find out more about the evening courses please contact gay.search2@gmail.com, parent of Dan (2004) and Nathan (2008) Laryea.
