Spanish School Visit

On Tuesday 27th April 40 students and four staff from IES Foramontanos and IES San Vicente, two secondary schools located in Cantabria, Spain, visited Notley High School. 

Students were given a tour of the school, followed by an English lesson with Mr Baster, where they wrote postcards describing their visit. The Spanish students then spent the afternoon pupil tracking an English partner, in order to get a taste of what school life is really like in England.

The day culminated in some of the Spanish students taking part in a conversation exchange with our Year Eleven GCSE Spanish Students, with the objective of helping them improve their Spanish in advance of the GCSE Speaking Examinations. One participant, Megan Thomas (11Y), commented ‘I really liked the experience, my partner was really nice and she helped me with my Spanish pronunciation. I also learnt some Spanish slang!’

Notley High School values the links it has established with these two Spanish Schools, and is exploring ways in which our relationship can be developed. What this space for further info.
