S1 Paris Trip May 2019

This year saw the return of the annual Paris trip for S1.  The trip included lots of sightseeing around the amazing landmarks of the city as well as a boat trip, a top-floor tour of the Eiffel Tower and a very successful language exchange to the British Council where pupils had a chance to use French with their French peers. 

We also enjoyed a whole day out at Parc Astérix theme park.  Much fun was had by all and we are already looking forward to next year’s trip.

S1 Seville Trip May 2019

Seville in May was beautiful.  We visited Seville Cathedral, the biggest gothic cathedral in the world.  It was in this cathedral where Christopher Columbus was buried. We also visited the Giralda, the bell tower of the Cathedral which was originally a Minaret of the Great Mosque of Seville in Al-Andalus.  The views from the top were impressive.

The visit to the Isla Mágica Theme Park was also very popular. Both pupils and teachers loved the experience.  We also went on a river cruise on the Guadalquivir. On another day, we visited Cádiz, one the oldest cities in Europe. We did a walking tour of the city and then we went to the beach. We loved the atmosphere in Seville with orange trees and horse-led carriages everywhere. The city is superb and we all had a brilliant time.

S3 Madrid Trip September 2018

Our annual trip to Madrid has been going from strength to strength. 

We have continued visiting the Bernabeu stadium, seeing the Lion King in Spanish, visiting the Royal Palace, eating churros at the Chocolatería San Ginés and visiting the Retiro Park. 

New for this year was the Parque de Atracciones, a visit to the Reina Sofía gallery to see the masterpiece that is Picasso’s Guernica and a very enjoyable language exchange with local teenagers, hosted by the British Council. 

Due to the success of this year’s trip, we are likely to repeat most of this year’s activities on our next visit to Madrid!
