Why study Spanish?

Do you hope to one day work abroad or speak a language fluently? Are you interested in an academically challenging course with a strong practical application? If so, then studying a Modern Language like Spanish to A-level could be for you. The Spanish course will develop your language skills, cultural and international understanding, and lifelong communication, analytical and research skills which can be applied at work or for leisure purposes.

What can I do with Spanish after A-Level?

Many students follow this course with a languages degree, which usually involves learning two languages alongside literature and/or linguistics. However, languages also complement any other subject, and are often combined with popular degree courses such as Law, Business, Marketing, History and Engineering. Language graduates are in high demand by employers in the UK and abroad

Spanish Extras

Students will have a weekly sessions with the Foreign Language Assistant in order to develop their speaking and listening skills through individual or small group conversation.

There will also be opportunities to spend time in Spain; in recent years these have included work experience placements in Cantabria, an immersion visit to Valencia and assisting a Year 7 trip to Spain as a 6th Form Leader.
