We offer pupils the opportunity to begin what we hope will be a life-long love affair with all things Spanish from Form 2 (Year 8). A popular choice of language at GCSE, many students continue their study of Spanish post-16 choosing between A-level or IB Spanish, the latter being an increasingly popular option for students not only to continue their Spanish at Higher and Standard Levels but starting from scratch with the ab initio course.
Our vibrant and dynamic subject specialists, aided by Spanish conversation class teachers, deliver our exciting courses to all year groups using the latest interactive resources, as well as a wealth of materials gathered over the years.
Beyond the classroom, to broaden our students’ linguistic and cultural knowledge, we run a two-night ‘lightning visit’ to Spain for Form 6 (Year 12) pupils and an annual Study Trip for Form 7 (Year 13) students for a full week of immersion.
In addition we offer a rich and varied programme of extra-curricular activities, including visits from outside speakers, film nights and participation in national competitions.
