Over the Easter holiday, 40 students from The Marches School went to Andalusia in Spain to visit the sights and to practice their Spanish speaking skills.

During their time in Spain the students visited Malaga, Ronda, Granada and Córdoba.

When visiting Ronda, students went to see the first bullring ever to be made in Spain which has now been turned into a museum. They also visited the Mosque of Córdoba and a Jewish synagogue where they watched a singing performance and learnt about the Jewish culture in Spain.

Year 9 student, Lily Hughes, commented, “We visited lots of amazing places during the stay such as the Alhambra Palace in Granada and the Picasso museum, which held real Picasso pieces. Some students were also given the chance to see the Barcelona versus Malaga football match which was a very enjoyable experience!” She continued, “Overall the trip to Andalusia was an unforgettable experience, full of days out and fun all over the region.”

Miss Emily Pearce, Spanish Teacher at The Marches School commented, “As well as seeing the wonderful sights of southern Spain, the students were fantastic at practising their language skills. It was wonderful to hear them speaking Spanish when out and about. ¡Muy bien!”
