Language pupils from the fifth year and lower sixth form travelled to Madrid during half-term to practise their Spanish and learn about the country’s culture.
From the outset, the pupils were expected to make every effort to use their knowledge of the language while shopping, eating out and during the activities.
The group visited a number of interesting sights in Madrid, which included a bull ring, the royal palace and Retiro park, where many hired boats and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon on the lake.
The pupils immersed themselves in Spanish culture when they learnt how to make tapas dishes and had a lesson in flamenco dancing and Spanish music at El Corral de la Moreria.
Football enthusiasts were delighted with their trip to the Bernabéu stadium, home to Real Madrid, where they enjoyed a behind the scenes tour.
The trip also took them to the Alcazar of Segovia, which sat high in the mountains and allowed the group to enjoy the beautiful views of the surrounding area before exploring the town on foot.
The action packed trip ended with a traditional Spanish breakfast followed by a fun day out at the Parque Warner theme park.
