Sanskrit is taught as an ancient language i.e. with the purpose of learning grammar and translating texts from the Ancient indian library. Texts include Mahabharata, The Bhagavad Gita and the Ramayana. Pupils will develop skills in grammatically analysing texts which in turn helps to improve the generic grammar skills across the Indo-European language tree. Pupils have the opportunity to study Sanskrit at IGCSE level and even further at A level.
