Kedst in Rome

On February, 3 staff and 25 students enjoyed a five day visit to Rome and Pompeii to enrich their understanding of Religious Studies, Classics and Art History.

Marvellous Madrid!

A group of 22 A Level Spanish students travelled with 3 members of staff to Madrid, Spain.

On Saturday morning we had a guided tour spoken in Spanish around the city centre. Our tour guide, Ernesto, pointed out many of the main sites and interesting aspects of the architecture, reflecting Madrid’s rich and varied history over the past five hundred years. We walked from our hotel in Malasaña, through the gay district Chueca, where we learnt about what life was like for gay people during the Spanish dictatorship, and how it has changed since the transition to democracy to the Mad...
