Why study Spanish?

A Level Spanish continues to build on the skills gained at GCSE with stimulating content to enable students to develop their linguistic skills alongside their understanding of the culture and society of the countries in which Spanish is spoken - from current affairs (such as technology, politics, role models in society, etc.) to national identity (past and present) of the Hispanic society. Students will study texts and film and will have the opportunity to carry out independent research on an area of their choice. 

What does the course involve?

Where will Spanish lead me post Sixth Form?

Spanish, as with other languages, continues to be a well-respected ‘facilitating subject’ and it will certainly stand out on a university application. A foreign language is widely considered to be one of those rigorously academic subjects we keep hearing about, and is also favoured by higher education institutions for the communication skills that it helps students to develop. But studying Spanish can offer you an endless combination of opportunities. The degree combinations are extreme - ever thought of a language degree with Anthropology, Maths, Politics, Business, Drama, Forensic Science or Music?
