Spanish is taught with a termly theme and is designed to encompass the four key skill areas of language learning; speaking, listening, reading and writing, along with both grammatical and cultural focuses.
Lessons are delivered in an active and engaging way with a high emphasis on the spoken and written language and learning about the countries where the language is spoken through the variety of topics covered. We aim to enrich our study of Spanish through a variety of trips and activities on offer throughout the academic year.
In the Junior School, we follow the Independent Curriculum which helps students to have gained a strong foundation in the subject through revisiting and building on basic language and grammar points as they progress from Years 5-6.
At KS3 we study a variety of topics that help develop and prepare students to study the language at GCSE, as well as giving them plenty of opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of Spanish culture and traditions.
At GCSE we study the Edexcel IGCSE Syllabus and A Level we study the Edexcel A Level Syllabus
