At Bishop Martin children from Year 1 to Year 6 receive a lesson each week from a native Spanish speaker. Children in EYFS learn early speaking and listening skills with their class teacher through songs and games in Spanish.
We believe that learning a second language boosts problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask.
Throughout the school you will see signs in both Spanish and English and teachers use Spanish to give simple classroom commands.
