Last week, some of our Spanish GCSE students visited Barcelona, where they learnt about Spanish culture and history and practised their Spanish. They visited the stadium Camp Neu, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell, had Spanish lessons with native speakers, went to a Flamenco show and spent a day in one of the biggest theme parks in Europe Portaventura
Well done to the staff who took time last night to showcase their work from GCSE and A level for: Art Photography Textiles Graphics RM Electronics Media Studies The exhibition was somewhat reduced in size due to fewer students following these courses but this by no means diminished the quality of the work that was showcased. It is very humbling to see the quality of the work our students produce under the guidance of staff here. I would like to extend my thanks to the staff who ensured students had the care and tuition to achieve such a high standard in these subjects.
