From 5th to the 9th March, students in years 9, 10 and 12 had the opportunity to take part in a Spanish immersion programme in Málaga, Spain.
Students stayed with Spanish families from the Language School in Pedregalejo, a coastal suburb 10 minutes east of Málaga city and enjoyed a range of activities whilst benefiting from the sunny weather of the Costa del Sol. Thank you to Mrs Shaw and Mrs Crespi for accompanying the students on this very worthwhile trip. Miss N. Crossley
The Spanish immersion visit to Malaga was the best school trip I’ve ever been on. The host family I stayed with was extremely welcoming and helped me and my partner settle in very quickly in the five days we were there. They helped us with the language and welcomed us as part of the family. There was something new to do every day, everything from sightseeing tours to paella cooking and we even did flamenco dancing lessons. Every session was interesting and I enjoyed every single one of them. Whether we were new to the language or nearly fluent, everyone learnt something; words or phrases or simply something about the Spanish lifestyle. I would recommend this trip to anyone and will probably participate again next year. Amy Matthews
The Spanish immersion trip was an amazing experience. I met new people and not only my Spanish improved but also my confidence. The host family lady I was staying with was very friendly and I felt settled. I would highly recommend this trip. It was fun and enjoyable! The way you pick up a language this way is great as you are constantly speaking the language. Jacob Franklin
