Courses:

At Sir William Ramsay, all students now study Spanish at Key Stage 3. They are taught in their tutor groups during Year 7 and in Year 8 and 9 they are set.

In Spanish at Key Stage 3, we use Listos textbooks. We work with the CDs, textbooks and activity books in all lessons and we also subscribe to 'Linguascope.com' and 'espanol-extra.com' to help students revise regularly. There are a variety of clubs running at lunch time and after school. We also have Foreign Language Assistants who come in once a week to work with our pupils

At KS4 languages becomes an option and students can either choose Spanish to take their GCSE and some of them carry on to A-level.

Our recent results at GCSE were very good and we work towards improving them furthermore each year.
