Each summer she teaches on the JSST Repton Summer School, to get a small 'fix' of classroom time. 

She has been involved in outreach work, especially in terms of access to Classics and to Higher Education, since her time as an undergraduate and then postgraduate student at Oxford University, and is delighted to have the opportunity to continue this work at CSCP.


Mair Lloyd — Senior Project Assistant

Mair LloydMair is particularly interested in pedagogy and technology for Latin teaching and contributes to supporting teachers using the CLC course and those preparing pupils for GCSE Latin examinations. She is very keen to hear about their experiences, challenges and ideas for enhancements to resources – write to her at

Before joining CSCP, Mair completed a PhD at the Open University where she undertook research into Latin pedagogy. If you have a lot of time to spare, you can read Mair’s thesis here. She also worked in public sector technology management for a number of years, before taking a BA course in Classical Studies as an antidote to the thrills and spills of being a local government IT Manager. She then completed an MA in Classics and Ancient History at Manchester University. As well as having varied Classics and technology experience, Mair has a secret past as a Further Education Maths Lecturer and hasn’t quite been able to rid herself of the habit of coaching unsuspecting friends and relations who carelessly let slip an interest in Maths study.

Since 2019, Lisa has been the Latin Learning Specialist at CSCP, primarily writing materials such as the new edition of the Cambridge Latin Course, and the resources around it. Lisa is also involved with the Cambridge Greek Academy project, bringing Classical Greek to students via online sessions – if anything at CSCP involves an ancient language, it probably ends up on her desk at some point. Her job also involves supporting teachers and learners -if you have any educational queries or suggestions, write to her at

Before joining CSCP, Lisa spent almost two decades in the classroom, teaching the full range of Classical subjects across KS3-5 in the state sector. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of St Andrews before gaining her PGCE in Classics at the University of Cambridge. She is particularly interested in digital learning, reading in additional languages, inclusive learning practices, and developing theories to explain how Clemens managed to get out of Pompeii. Her favorite Stage in the new edition of the CLC is Stage 19.




Andrew Kightley — Project Secretary and Publications Manager

Andrew KightleyAndrew started working for CSCP in the summer of 2016 as Project Secretary and Publications Manager. He handles the administration and distribution of all products and services sold by CSCP, and is the first port of call for customers with problems or questions. On top of this he manages the office and keeps the rest of the team organised; no easy task! 

Andrew studied Philosophy at degree level, but was introduced to Classics when he studied Classical Civilisation at A Level. 

When he's not keeping the office running smoothly,  he can be found teaching and dancing with The Cambridge Lindy Hoppers. He does not, however, dance in the office unless provoked.



John O'Leary — Website Developer

John The DeveloperIn 2019, a coder by trade was brought into the team. He knows a variety of programming languages and is keen to find the ultimate language that will unite people with machines via a linguistic singularity.

John completed his dissertation about the Semantic Web which he thinks is one of the most promising directions of development for achieving objectivity in communication and reaching a point when a better bridge can be built for translating natural language into machine language. Since then he has worked on many websites across a variety of organisations but has not, until now, had the opportunity to work specifically on language learning resources like those on offer from this team.
