Spanish is taught to years 9-14. The department's aims are for the pupils to enjoy learning Spanish and to be proud of their linguistic ability. They are encouraged to build on their learning and experiment with the language whilst working to their full potential in class work and examinations. Pupils are positively praised and should feel confident to express themselves in a supportive atmosphere.
All pupils in years 9 and 10 have four lessons of Spanish per week. The course followed is Viva in Year 9 and Listos in Year 10. The course has unit tests which pupils sit twice a term to assess progress. These test pupils' progress in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Pupils are set homework three to four times per week which in total takes approximately two hours to complete.
