Opportunities in industry, commerce, banking, the Diplomatic Service, teaching, journalism, interpreting and translating, linguist, travel and tourism. These are the areas in which your career might be shaped - an A-level in Spanish will give you a distinct advantage.
To assist in the development of the spoken language we conduct lessons almost exclusively in Spanish and encourage students to get involved with language clubs and lesson support in the lower school.
During year 12 we encourage students to do a work experience placement in either Spain or a Spainish-speaking country.
