Cultural Programme

On Wednesdays, there are afternoon excursions to nearby sites , with visits to places of historical interest- cathedrals, castles, and a diverse range of museums, to name but a few.

Saturdays are dedicated to a full-day excursion to cities such as Madrid; with visits to the world-famous Prado Museum
On Sundays a visit to La Granja (Royal Palace), or the chance to discover Spain's natural beauty on a canoe trip in the spectacular Guadarrama nature reserve, are palnned.

Students will investigate as they discover each destination- upon returning from the excursion, they will have to contrast what they discovered in the research process with what they saw during the visit, giving themselves the opportunity to develop their understanding of the local culture, critical thinking skills, and above all, learning "the art of putting into words your own impressions".

On other weekday afternoons, the extensive cultural and leisure programme encourages young students to put their Spanish speaking skills to good use in real life scenarios, both formal and informal. The activities on offer range from the cinematic to the gastronomic, and everything in between. (Whatever your taste, there is a flavour for everybody.)
