Every two years the Spanish and Art departments offer a cultural visit to a Spanish city for students in Year 11, 12 and 13. In February 2015 28 students spent a long weekend in Madrid, where they visited the Reina Sofía and El Prado art museums, home to many iconic pieces, including Picasso’s Guernica. Spanish students particularly enjoyed visiting our link school in Madrid, meeting students and penfriends. Two years ago we visited Barcelona, where we were able to appreciate the unfinished cathedral of Gaudí, as well as visiting the Salvador Dalí museum in Figueres.
There is a wide selection of films available to borrow from the school library. Mary Glasgow magazines are offered each year for students to purchase.
Each year there is a ‘Christmas card’ exchange, with classes in KS3 exchanging cards with classes in our link school in Madrid.
