In the Languages Team we place great value on the practical use of languages in real situations.
We feel there is no better way for a pupil to get to grips with our subjects than to actually experience, hear, speak, see and absorb the languages and cultures in the native countries.
For this reason we currently offer trips to Paris, Barcelona and Cardiff. Below is our schedule for forthcoming trips;
