Spanish Visitors

Head of MFL, Mrs Jones, tells us about a recent visit from a group of Spanish teachers: “Still very proud of our International School Awards status, acquired in 2016, and in our constant strive to develop the International and European dimension of our school, on Friday 7th of December, Trinity hosted 11 Spanish teachers from the region of Extremadura in western Spain. The purpose of their visit was to immerse themselves in a different language and education system like 40 of our staff had done in Santander, Spain in 2017 and Rouen, France, in 2018.

Their day was packed with activities: they experienced an assembly with hymn singing, toured the school with the Head and spent time in their respective subjects, where they were amazed by our students’ keenness to learn and the energy our teachers put into lessons. They also had a fantastic Q&A session with our Year 11s, who got to practise their Spanish speaking skills and were impressive interviewers. Finally, their visit had a historical purpose: to find out about the Suffragettes movement. They had a personalised introduction to this from some of our Year 7s from St James in Rusholme, whose Year 6 project was recently recognised at an awards ceremony in London. These students spoke to our visitors about the Suffragettes, before rounding off the day with some banner making, in collaboration with Mrs Wright in the history department, ahead of the Suffragettes march and the unveiling of the Emeline Pankhurst statue on Friday, 14th December.”
