Job Vacancy: Teaching Assistant

LCS has a vacancy for the position of: Teaching Assistant.

For more information please see the Job Vacancies Page.

Update: 14th May

Posted 14th May 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

A very brief update from me today.

I have included the link (below) to the government document for parents and carers issued this week.

There have been numerous publications and updates issued by government and teaching unions this week and our assessment of the current situation remains ongoing. The document below includes all the relevant information for parents and carers, as things currently stand.

As the document states:
'Schools and other settings should communicate their plans to parents once they have had a chance to work through them in detail'.

At LCS this is and always has been our plan and we will continue to update you regularly as things develop.

Government Information for Parents and Carers Re: School Reopening.

Best wishes and keep safe.

Update: 12th May

Posted 12th May 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

Following the government's announcement yesterday evening, it is clear that school closure will continue for some time yet, particularly in the Secondary sector. A copy of the detailed document 'Our Plan to Rebuild' has been sent via email to schools this afternoon and we will be taking time to review the contents of this document over the next 24 hours.

Practically speaking, I have asked staff to continue setting work as they have been so far, with a further review of the situation at the start of next half-term. Following feedback from parents, carers and students, we have asked staff to allow students some time to catch up by not setting any new work on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd May. This will allow students the 'breathing space' requested by the majority of parents and carers who have been contacting us in recent weeks. If students feel they are up to date and do not need this time to catch up, they should use the time to revise and review the work they have completed so far. They can also continue to access tasks via Mathswatch, Doddle and/or The Oak Academy, as many are already doing. As I have mentioned previously, staff will not set work over the May half-term holiday and we would encourage students to take this time to rest and focus on more non-school related activities to benefit their physical, as well as mental health.

Although no formal timescale has been outlined by government so far, we are working on the basis that any return to school for exam classes in Year 10 and Year 12 will not be before mid-July; if further guidance is provided, this may obviously change. If and when this happens, we will put a plan together to manage student numbers on site in order to adhere to social distancing; this would be shared with parents, carers and students nearer the time. At present, we are waiting for further guidance on the possible return to school for students in Years 7-9.

As students continue to work from home and following feedback and questions from parents and carers, I have attached a link to a Parent Resource Hub related to safety on line and with social media. This is from an organisation called The Key, which we have recently subscribed to in school. I hope it is of use to you.

The Key - Parent Resource Hub

One of the main things I am concerned about as school closure continues is the lack of personal contact between students and school staff. In recent weeks, our well-being and SEND teams, as well as Heads of Year, have been contacting parents, carers and students to check on the welfare of as many students as possible. We have also been keen to update our social media accounts with fun activities involving school staff, to maintain informal as well as formal communications between students and school. It is very difficult, though, for us to make personal contact with all students at the moment and I would encourage those of you concerned about your child to email or call school to request contact from a member of staff. We will endeavour to contact all those students where requested, as well as continuing with our existing planned communications. I have recorded a brief Instagram message for students this afternoon encouraging them to get in touch with us if they are finding things difficult working from home and I would appreciate if you could inform your child about this message, or show it to them.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support. We will continue to work together until this current situation is behind us and we can start planning ahead for the future.

Keep safe.

Update: 6th May

Posted 6th May 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

As we approach the end of another week of school closure, we await the government announcement on potential re-opening of schools, scheduled for Sunday. Once this announcement has been made, regardless of what it may contain, it will take us time as a school to assess and decide on the action we will need to take.

I would respectfully request that parents and carers do not contact us with questions related to potential school re-opening at this present time, as I will be communicating any decisions made to you as soon as it is appropriate to do so. There has been a lot said on this topic of late, some of which has been confusing and unhelpful, and I will be relieved personally when we know what the government's plans for schools actually are.

This week we have again seen some outstanding examples of work being completed by students at home. Please thank your children for their continued efforts and for their responses to the forms sent out by Form Tutors, which were returned in impressive numbers. Heads of Year will be contacting students who did not return their forms over the next few days, to check all is well and to make sure students have no concerns.

This week on our social media pages, we have also seen contributions from our Year 10 Tutor Team by way of a tribute to Friends, filmed by staff from home. We hope students enjoyed this, along with other messages staff have been posting over the last few weeks. It is important, as well as the setting of work, that we maintain a more informal and personal connection with students and there are plans for further such posts in the future.

As I said in my previous update, school will be closed on Friday and no work will be set by teaching staff. I hope students will be able to use the long weekend to recharge their batteries from what has been a very busy few weeks since the Easter holiday.

Finally, a massive thank you to anyone who has donated materials to Mr Smith, who has been in school making hundreds of PPE masks for local hospitals and organisations. We have enough acetate in school to make 700 masks, but need other materials for the headbands. Details of the materials required have been posted today on our Facebook and Twitter sites and we would be extremely grateful for further donations.

I will issue a further update early next week. Thank you for your continued support.

Keep safe.

Update: 30th April

Posted 30th April 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

Good afternoon from LCS.
I hope this latest update finds you and your families safe and well. It seems like a lifetime since we were open to all students, but I have been reminded that today is only day 19 of school closure, which has put things into a little more perspective.

Star Academies has recently launched StarLine, a free national helpline to provide parents with home education advice while schools are closed. StarLine offers parents tips and techniques from qualified teachers, education and parenting experts, and suggests online resources to help children learn at home. It covers all areas of the curriculum and all stages of education, as well as family wellbeing, children’s behaviour, and SEND. The helpline is open Sunday–Friday and all calls are confidential – further details and contact information can be found on the StarLine website 

https://www.starline.org.uk/

From a school perspective we continue to monitor updates and announcements from the DfE and Public Health England, with regard to possible dates for schools to re-open. As yet there is no set timescale for this, but we are expecting some guidelines to be announced fairly soon. It is clear that any re-opening of schools will be phased and not all students will be attending each day. LCS, as any other school, will face the challenge of social distancing in classrooms and corridors, which are no wider than 2 metres in most areas of the school building. We will, however, work as best we can and will find a workable solution when the time comes.

Following Senior Management discussions this morning, we have made the decision not to issue any further progress Reports for students this academic year. Each Year Group has had either an Interim Report, Full Report or Parents' Evening before school closure and we feel any further issuing of progress grades this year would be inappropriate. We will be looking at our Reporting and Parents' Evening cycle from September and will make necessary adjustments to make sure parents, carers and students receive the necessary progress information, once the new academic year begins. I am aware this will be frustrating and disappointing for many of you, however we felt it the best decision to make rather than issue progress grades that could not, realistically, be accurate.

As well as continuing to set work for students, we have begun looking at plans for our Induction process, both for new Year 7 and Year 12 students for September. In both cases, this process will clearly not be able to run as it has previously and we are looking at alternative methods of providing the relevant information. We will be informing parents, carers and students of our revised Induction programs as soon as they are finalised.

As always, thank you for your continued understanding and support during the current school closure. Please encourage your children to follow the activities being posted on our social media sites, as well as completing the work set by teachers. Ms Wilson will soon be posting a competition on the theme of school staff and their pets, so make sure you don't miss out!

Best wishes and keep safe.

Update: 24th April

Posted 24th April 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

Good afternoon from LCS, at what is the end of another unusual week.

Thank you all again for the messages of support we have been receiving and for your help and encouragement with students completing work from home. A lot of the work students are sending back to us is of an excellent quality and it is clear many students are taking a great deal of time and care over the tasks being set. Once again, this shows the exceptional young people we have as students at LCS. They are a credit to the school and, more importantly,  to yourselves as families.

I would like to remind all students that we only expect them to produce work to the best of their ability and that times indicated by staff on Go4Schools are for guidance only. We do not expect students to spend excessive amounts of time on tasks in certain subjects, to the detriment of others. We also do not want students to put themselves under unnecessary pressure and stress to complete work at home. They must also take time to rest and look after their mental, as well as physical health.

Form Tutors have sent out a task to all students this week to check how they are getting on and to find out the sort of activities students have been taking part in during school closure. We have had some excellent responses already to this and we would ask all students to respond to their Tutor by next Wednesday. We are also encouraging students, parents and carers to interact via our Facebook and Instagram pages, so please feel free to send things in to us if you can.

I would like to send a particular message to our Muslim students at the start the holy month of Ramadan, which will be a unique and unusual experience in the current circumstances. Our best wishes to all students and families. Ramadan Mubarak.

I will continue to update you next week and will pass on any further links to useful resources, as and when we receive them. My last update contained several such resource links, which I hope you have found useful. 

Best wishes from all staff at LCS.

Keep safe.

Update: 22nd April

Posted 22nd April 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out an update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

Good afternoon. I hope you are all safe and well.

Just a brief update for today, with some more links to useful information and activities during school closure. We receive numerous updates each day with links to useful sites and resources, but the ones attached below may be of particular use to you.

Resources

ThinkUKnow have added further information to their online safety advice for parents, carers and students. This can be found at the following link:

https://mailchi.mp/8b4d65c61324/online-safety-at-home-from-thinkuknow-21-04-20?e=7b7b9b48db

 

Amazon have made hundreds of audible books available to young people without subscription. These can be accessed at the link below:

https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

The National Theatre have recently launched 'National Theatre At Home', where productions can be accessed on-line for families to watch at home. The link for this is:

https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/nt-at-home

BBC Bitesize have added a lot of resources to their site to support students during school closure. The link for this is below:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize

Free School Meals

Finally, you may be aware of a recent temporary extension of Free School Meal eligibility to families who have no access to public funds. The details of this are at the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-free-school-meals-guidance/guidance-for-the-temporary-extension-of-free-school-meals-eligibility-to-nrpf-groups

If you believe your child is eligible under these new guidelines, please email wisepay@littleover.derby.sch.uk 

Our kitchen staff have asked if parents/carers of students currently attending school could make sure school meal accounts are topped up through Wisepay, to avoid staff having to handle cash. If students attending are eligible for Free School Meals, this will continue to be automatically credited to their account.

That's it from LCS today. Please look out for further updates on Friday.

Keep safe.

Update: 20th April

Posted 20th April 2020

Mr Wilding has sent out another update to parents.

To all parents and carers,

Hello again. I hope this message finds you well and that you have all had a break, of some sort, over Easter. We will be setting work for students again from today, using the same methods as previously. We will also be returning to updating students, parents and carers regularly via email and social media; I have recorded a brief message to students on Instagram this afternoon and would be grateful if you could ask your child(ren) to look at it, or show it to them.

I am aware that some students will have found the work being set before Easter extremely challenging and that some will be concerned about not completing tasks. Please assure your child(ren) that we are only asking them to complete tasks to the best of their ability and, as long as they are doing so, there will be no sanctions issued to students when school re-opens. We obviously want students to complete as much work as possible, but we understand that timescales need to be flexible under the circumstances.

We have today started work on awarding of GCSE and A level 'Centre Assessment Grades' for students due to sit exams this summer. Mr McElhone will be sending a separate, more detailed, email to parents and carers of students this applies to. Mr McElhone's email will also include a link to the OFQUAL Consultation for Exam Grading and Assessment 2020, which can be responded to by parents and carers up to Wednesday 29th April. Schools have until 29th May at the earliest to finalise these grades and cannot share any of the information with students, parents or carers at any time. As Mr McElhone's more detailed email says, we appreciate you allowing us the time to complete this process in the fairest way possible and we respectfully ask that you do not contact school to ask about individual cases; we would not be able to respond.

I apologise to parents and carers of students eligible for Free School Meals, as there have been significant problems with issuing of e-vouchers over the last 2 weeks. This is a national issue with the website and is not related to us as a school. We believe the issue has now been rectified and parents and carers should be receiving their back-dated e-vouchers soon. 

Please note that the Safeguarding and Wellbeing sections of the LCS website are being regularly updated with useful links to support information and services which provide help during these uncertain times.

Thank you again for your support and cooperation during this time. I will issue a further update in a few days.

Keep safe.

Key Workers children and EHCP/LAC students w/c 20th April

Posted 15th April 2020

School will be open from Monday 20th April onwards for children of key workers and EHCP/LAC students. (We will be closed for the Bank Holiday on Friday 8th May). The Government advises that children should be at home if possible.

If you need your child to attend school next week (and further forwards) please email provision@littleover.derby.sch.uk so that we know who to expect. We understand that some parents may just need to send their children on particular days, this is fine, just send the details of which dates they will be attending. Students should wear school uniform and report to D7 at 8.40am. Students will use the time to get on with work that is being set on Go4 schools. There will be teachers from different subjects on duty over the week so that students can ask for help on anything they find difficult. There will be a small selection of food to buy in the Dining Room, or students may bring their own sandwiches.

Deputy Headteacher

End of Term Update from Mr Wilding

Posted 3rd April 2020

Mr Wilding has published an end of term update.

To all parents and carers.

We have reached the end of what I was expecting to be a challenging term, being my first as Acting Headteacher. No one could have predicted, though, how challenging it has turned out to be.

As a school we have done our very best to put procedures in place for setting of work and for regular communication with parents and students. I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to get in touch, especially for the overwhelmingly positive responses we have had. It is much appreciated.

As mentioned in my previous updates, I have now asked all staff to stop setting work for students and to observe what would have been the Easter holiday period, until Monday 20th April. I believe we all need time to rest and recuperate, especially our students who have been through such a stressful time over the last 2 weeks. For staff, also, it is vital they can spend time with their families to reflect on recent events and to rest, so we can all come back stronger at the start of next term. As no new work will be set over the next 2 weeks, we would also not expect students to be doing any ‘catching up’ of work they are still to complete; there will be plenty of time for this when next term begins. We have tried to send out as many ideas for exercise, relaxation and other non-work related activities as possible and I hope there are enough ideas out there to keep all students occupied.

School will remain open over Easter for vulnerable children and children of key workers, where this has previously been arranged between parents/carers and Mrs Bunting. This will be along the lines of a holiday club and no school work will be set.

Earlier today, emails were sent to students in Year 11 and Year 13, from Mr McElhone and Mr Archer, respectively. These messages include a link to a letter sent to all schools this morning by OFQUAL related to awarding of GCSE and A Level grades. As this information has only arrived in school today, we will be taking time to read through it carefully and fully assess its implications. We would, therefore, respectfully ask if no related questions could be emailed to school at this present time. Staff will be working on the awarding of these grades from the start of next term and OFQUAL have allowed a significant period of time for this process to happen.

Please keep safe over the next few weeks and thank you all again for your support.

Mr J. Wilding
Acting Headteacher

Ofqual/DfE Update - GCSE and A-level grades

Letter to Students re: Summer Grading

We would politely request, as it clearly states in the guidance, to not contact staff or school to discuss your child's predicted grades.

We have sent the same information to your child via email.

Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times.

Easter Holiday Provision at LCS

Posted 31st March 2020

Littleover Community School will be open for EHCP/LAC children and for Children of Key Workers over the Easter Holiday.  This will be for four days each week, Monday 6th – Thursday 9th April and Tuesday 14th – Friday 17th April, from 8.40am to 3.15pm.

The Government’s advice is that children should be at home if possible.

For the two weeks of Easter Holiday Club we are planning some sports and craft activities to make the provision a bit different to what we have done during term time. Computers will be available, and students may wish to bring in games, reading books and puzzle books. Students can carry on with homework tasks if they wish to. Students will NOT be expected to wear school uniform.

We will be able to provide food, but this will be limited to cheese sandwiches, plus a carton of juice and crisps or a cookie. Students may of course bring their own food.

We understand that some parents may need to use this facility for all eight days, and others may send children just one or two days a week. We can be flexible to accommodate your needs, but please let us know which days to expect your child.

If you wish to use the Easter Holiday Club for your child, please email j.bunting@littleover.derby.sch.uk with details of your child’s name, year group and the days they will be attending.

Year 11 Grades Update

Posted 20th March 2020

Whilst we await clarification from the government, predicted grades have been temporariliy locked from parents and students.

Dear Parents/Carers,

During the last week staff were in the process of reviewing the predicted grades for Year 11. Not all staff had finished this process. Obviously national events have overtaken this process so we have temporarily locked these from parents and students until we have a clear picture of what the situation is with regards to the awarding of grades in the summer.

We will update you and your child as soon as we have further information in this regard.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at a stressful time for all.

Mr McElhone
(Acting Deputy Headteacher)

Posted 19th March 2020

Due to the school closure as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, the LCS Sports and Fitness Centre will be closed until further notice.

This is a difficult time for us all, but the welfare of our visitors and staff must always come first. We will temporarily close our doors to the public in response to the government’s latest advice concerning the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Please keep checking LCS web page where we will be providing any further information and updates.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back in person in the future.

Year 8 France Trip Cancelled

Posted 18th March 2020

Unfortunately, due to the uncertain nature of current events, the Year 8 France Trip has been cancelled.

Dear Parents/Carers

It is with sincere regret that I confirm that I have taken the decision to cancel the planned France trip for our Year 8 Students this summer.

The health and wellbeing of our students and staff is my priority during this uncertain time which makes the cancellation of the trip unavoidable.

At present we cannot contemplate an alternative date for the trip to take place and therefore confirm that we will endeavour to refund your payments. We are currently in conversation with our Tour Operator and our Insurance company and as soon as we are in a position to be clear on the refund amounts, I will be in touch.

Please be assured that I will not stretch the refund process any longer than is necessary and it is my intention to reimburse as soon as I receive confirmation from our Insurers.

Thank you for your understanding.

Your sincerely

Fun in Madrid for Year 9!

Year 9 Spanish students spent 3 days in Madrid from Wednesday 5th February to Saturday 8th February.

We had a fabulous time trying tapas, watching flamenco, visiting Real Madrid home stadium, Santiago Bernabeu and even meeting up face to face with our Spanish penpals at their own school!

We loved learning about Bull fighting at the Plaza de Toros and enjoyed our final afternoon in the sunshine in Madrid's beautiful Retiro Park.

All in all a fantastic trip where we spoke lots of Spanish, made friends for life and came away loving the Madrid way of life and their culture.

LCS Top of the League for A-levels!

Posted 28th January 2020

LCS Top of the League for A-levels!

The A-level league tables were released this week by the Department for Education confirming LCS as the highest performing school in the city.

The average grade of our Year 13 students last year was a B (National average grade is C) with an average point score of 38.24 (National average is 32.87) in their best 3 A-levels which placed us as the best in the city of Derby. LCS was also ranked 1st for the % of students achieving top grades in ‘facilitator’ subjects and for the average grade in all A-levels taken. The league tables also confirmed that LCS students made good progress in the 6th Form, with a positive ‘value added’ score – the only school in the area with so many students to achieve this positive measure.

With 35% of all grades A*/A, 63% A*-B and 88% A*-C, these results are confirmed as the best in the school’s history. This is particularly encouraging as they are the first results achieved since we began to adjust our curriculum in response to recent A-level reforms which suggests that the curriculum model that we have adopted is working.

These outstanding results are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff and students and enabled virtually all the students to go on to their first choice universities or apprenticeships – including 9 offers from Oxford and Cambridge which was another record for the school.

Goodbye Mr Venkatesh!

Posted 20th December 2019

Goodbye Mr Venkatesh!

LCS Headteacher Mr Venkatesh today arrived in a chauffeur driven car for his last day at LCS.

As a brass band played the tune from Mastermind (Mr Venkatesh was famously on the show, winning his heat!), Mr Venkatesh emerged from the silver car amid cheers and applause from the hundreds of LCS students and staff lining the road.

After 17 years, first as Deputy Head and then Headteacher, Mr Venkatesh will now hand over the reins of LCS to new Acting Headteacher, Mr Wilding.

The LCS community thanks Mr Venkatesh and wishes him all the best in his retirement.

Farewell Message from Mr Venkatesh

Posted 18th December 2019

Farewell Message from Mr Venkatesh

Mr Venkatesh, who leaves LCS at the end of December after 17 years, has written a message of farewell to the LCS Community.

Please find the full message below:

Farewell Message from Mr Venkatesh

First of all, I would like to express my sincere thanks for the kindness and generosity shown to me this term, as I come towards the end of my 17 years at Littleover. The gifts I have received will be treasured and enjoyed, and the personal messages will be remembered.

When I arrived at Littleover, it was a successful school with pride in its achievements. I have been fortunate indeed to be able to play my small part in maintaining our high standards, firstly as Deputy to the extraordinary David Nichols, and more recently as Headteacher. As always, it has been a team effort, and I would like to pay tribute to all the staff, students, governors and parents who have worked together, sometimes in difficult circumstances, to keep us on track.

Globally and nationally, the picture is unstable and worrying for many of us. All the more important then, to stick to our own core values, and control the things we can, ensuring that at least within the school we maintain a positive spirit and allow diversity and excellence to flourish, in a civilised and caring environment.

I leave the school in the capable hands of Mr Wilding, who has shown over many years the strength of his commitment to LCS and has played a large part in its current success. He will be able supported by an experienced and professional senior team, and a whole staff determined to improve the school even further. With your continuing support, Littleover Community School will go from strength to strength.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from me to everyone associated with LCS.

Thank you.

Mr A Venkatesh

A-Level Results

A-Level Results

Congratulations to all LCS Year 13 students who received their A Level results today.

Littleover Community School is celebrating its best ever A level results. Over a third of grades were A*-A and nearly 2 thirds of grades were A*-B with 87% of grades being C or above. The average grade was a B. These results are a significant improvement on last year and represent a fantastic achievement for our students and it is great to see the hard work of students and staff rewarded.

Over half of students achieved at least one grade A with 80% of students achieving at least one grade B or above. 2 students achieved 4 A* grades and 4 students achieved 3 A* grades with 17% of students achieving 3 or more A*/A grades. Nearly half of all students achieved three Bs or better and the overall pass rate is 100%.

Although the number of high grades is very pleasing and enables a large number of students to access the most competitive universities, courses and apprenticeships, it is important to note that there are many students throughout the ability range who have, through sheer hard work as well as natural ability, matched or exceeded their target grades, and all deserve congratulations for their achievements.

Key Figures 2019

A*-A 34%
A*-B 62%

Well done!

Letter to Parents from LCS Governors

Posted 28th June 2019

The LCS Governing Board has sent a letter to parents of all LCS students regarding future plans for the LCS Headteacher position.

The letter can be read in full below:

Dear Parents,

Following the recent announcement from Mr Venkatesh of his intention to step down at the end of 2019, the Governing Board met this week to discuss and agree the next steps.

The Governing Board has asked Mr Jon Wilding, Deputy Headteacher, to take on the role of Acting Headteacher for a year, commencing 1st January 2020. I’m delighted to be able to tell you Mr Wilding accepted.

The transition planning will commence immediately and carry on throughout the Autumn Term 2019. It is likely that other interim roles may be required and/or responsibilities re-distributed, and Mr Wilding will advise at the appropriate time.

The Governing Board will also commence the longer term Headteacher recruitment process. In the meantime, we are confident the interim arrangements will provide continuity, stability and continue the ongoing drive for continuous improvement in student outcomes that Littleover Community School is famous for.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via the school.

E-Safety Awareness Week - 24th-28th June

During E-safety week, Key Stage 3 pupils will be using their Computing lessons to focus on E-Safety in the modern age. Whilst all aspects of internet use and electronic devices are covered, we feel our priority this year is the use of social media. To raise the profile of E-Safety, there are a number of competitions for students to enter and they will attend dedicated whole year group assemblies.

In order to help facilitate students’ understanding, we would encourage parents to become involved and engage in conversation with your children on this matter. It is clearly important, but we do need to emphasise the awareness of issues that could arise, both in school, at home and socially with friends.

All content and materials are in-line with current national guidance.

If you have any concerns about your child and their use of the internet or social media you can either contact CEOP directly at the following web address.

https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/

You can find out more about E-Safety on the LCS website at Parents > Safeguarding > E-safety where there is comprehensive information and links to many different organisations that provide useful help and guidance.

Year 9 Madrid Trip 2019

Year 9 Madrid Trip 2019

From 6th - 8th February 2019, 39 Year 9 students and 4 members of staff spent 3 days in Madrid. We were very lucky with the weather, and we certainly made the most of our Spanish experience!

As soon as we arrived we began our Spanish adventure. Due to our early flight from Liverpool airport we were all very hungry and tired by the time we arrived at our hotel! That didn’t stop us from eating tapas and watching a real-life Flamenco show at the famous Villa Rosa. ¡Olé!

We spent the next day brushing up on our Spanish with our pen pals in our partner school in Madrid, ‘IES Santa Eugenia’. Students spent time playing bilingual games with their pen pals and attending lessons in Spanish! Afterwards we headed to Madrid Zoo and finished off the day at the home to Real Madrid, doing the Santiago Bernabéu stadium tour.

The following morning we enjoyed our typical Spanish breakfast at the hotel and headed out via Metro to Las Ventas, for our guided bullring arena tour.

After an exhausting morning we headed back to the hotel to collect our luggage and get ready for the flight home to Liverpool.

All in all, we all really enjoyed our Spanish adventure in the capital, made lots of life-long friends, tried lots of new things and practised lots of Spanish!
