A mixed group of Year 9 – 13 students enjoyed an exciting 5 day trip to sunny Andalucía where they met up with their pen pals from IES Fuente de la Peña. They particularly enjoyed the Combination Team Building Day in school and the tour of the school to see what life in a Spanish school is like;

‘We really had a great time in Jaén. All the students are buzzing about it and it has definitely motivated some students to take Spanish for GCSE and A-level. Thanks for this!’

Here is what some of the students and other teachers had to say;

‘The trip was fun and educational!’ Kirsty, Year 10

‘I spoke a lot of Spanish during the day at school.’ Louis, Year 10

‘My pen pal was amazing, it was sad when we left the Spanish students.’ Mitch, Year 9
