Our Y11 and Y12 pupils can choose to study Spanish as their second modern foreign language and many decide to pursue their Spanish studies at GCSE level and even AS / A2 level. Our learners enjoy being taught by native speakers, focusing on developing the four main skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening whilst developing a sound understanding of Spanish grammar. Cultural aspects of the Spanish speaking world are presented to students and there are opportunities to consolidate their knowledge thanks to several outings to museums, theatres and cinemas, as well as occasional trips abroad.

Prep School Curriculum
Greetings, classroom instructions, the alphabet, numbers, countries and nationalities, family members, describing people, school and subjects, daily routine, types of houses and rooms, places in town and directions, the weather, sports and activities.

Senior School Curriculum
Travel and tourism, cafes and restaurants, shopping for food and clothes, leisure activities, health and fitness, education, work and employment, media, culture and the environment.

Advanced level
Youth culture and concerns; lifestyle: health and fitness; the world around us: travel, tourism; environmental issues and the Spanish-speaking world; education and employment; customs, traditions, beliefs and religions; national and international events; past, present and future; literature and the arts.

Up to GCSE level, the grammar practised in class will be presented progressively to pupils and specific grammar points or tenses will be consolidated each year. The broad grammar points are the following : articles/ nouns and pronouns / agreements of nouns and adjectives / asking questions / main tenses: the present, future, past and conditional of regular and irregular verbs/ prepositions

A level studies will include much more complex grammar points such as studying the subjunctive, the imperative, and the passive voice.
