Spanish is taught to all students in Year 7, 8 and 9. It is offered as an option for GCSE with terminal examinations in listening, speaking, reading and writing. An important aim is for students to gain in confidence and learn about culture, customs and traditions in Spain and Latin America. In the Sixth Form, students have the opportunity to continue Spanish to A Level.
The Department organises trips to Spain, which have proved popular and beneficial, as well as special outings and in house activities.
