The honour, awarded in the King’s 2023 Birthday Honours, recognises Dr Holmes-Henderson’s work to make Classics more widely available in schools and helping young people develop their communication skills.

“I collaborate with inspiring colleagues in academia, schools, charities and museums. This award is a reflection of our collective achievements. I enjoy using my experience, knowledge and skills to make a positive difference.”
