Ottilie Cheetham

London and SE Network Coordinator

I studied Classics and English at Oxford, and did a Classics PGCE at KCL. I have been teaching Latin and Classics in London state secondary schools for 12 years. I have experience of being Head of Department in schools where Latin and Classics flourish from KS3 to KS5, and as the sole Latin teacher building a department from scratch. Since 2022 I have enjoyed having a foot in two worlds; working part-time as a Latin teacher and Lead Practitioner at a school in Walthamstow, and as a Visiting Tutor with the KCL Classics PGCE. Having been involved with Classics For All  both as the recipient of support and as a trainer, I was so excited to have the opportunity join the team as London and SE Network Coordinator alongside my other roles. There’s nothing I love more than seeing young people become more and more excited as they learn about the ancient world, and I’m thrilled to be part of bringing that excitement to as many students as possible!

Andrew Sillett 

Oxford, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Network Coordinator

I am a lecturer and researcher in Roman history and Latin literature at the University of Oxford, with a particular specialism in Cicero and Classics Education. As my school had no provision for classics teaching, my personal exploration of the ancient world began at university. I was an undergraduate on the University of Oxford’s Course 2 Classics programme, learning both Latin and Greek from scratch. I started teaching at the university in the course of my doctorate and continued doing so full-time after its completion, always taking a strong interest in supporting students who arrived with little or no background in Classics. I take a strong interest in outreach activities, and ran an online Latin club for primary and secondary school students from Oxford state schools during Lockdown. I am excited to be joining the Classics for All team, and look forward to meeting existing teachers in the Oxford, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Network, as well as introducing new schools to the opportunities that Classics education can offer to their students.
