At Betty Layward all students in key stage 2 learn Spanish as their modern foreign language for one lesson per week.
We are lucky to have the expertise of three Spanish-speaking teachers with varied backgrounds and experiences to ensure a rich and diverse learning content.
In 2016, students in year 5 traveled to Madrid on a one week school exchange to explore the diversity of Spanish education and lifestyle. Students were able to communicate through their knowledge of the Spanish language, and have made some very strong connections to our partner school in Madrid. We are exploring ways of welcoming our partner school on a visit to Betty Layward in the 2016-17 academic year.
