The Network Coordinators

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! 

Linda Soames

Oxford, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Network Coordinator

I read Classics and Archaeology at Bristol and did a Classics PGCE at Cambridge. I taught Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation for 25 years across the age range - Yrs 5-13.  I was former President of ArLT (The Association for Latin Teaching).  Outside of classroom teaching I worked as a Charity Organiser for 3 years.  I became a trainer for Classics for All in 2016 and the Network Coordinator for the new Oxford, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Network in Autumn 2018. I am married to a fellow Classicist and have 2 sons and a grandson.  I love travelling, especially to the Mediterranean (Greece in particular) and am trying to learn modern Greek in my spare time!
