    The examinations board used for assessment at GCSE is AQA.  There are two tiers of examinations; Foundation (grades C - G) and Higher (grades A*-D)

    Extra-curricular opportunities

    Students are able to take part in a trip to Spain.  The department believes it is vital that students learning a foreign language spend some time in the target country.  We feel this is an imprtant part of the 'language experience', one which makes the learning process come alive.  There is a European Day of Languages in September and also a Spanish Day where typical food is served in the canteen.
