'Let your light shine'


Learning a foreign language is incredibly exciting and rewarding!


We believe that a high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further languages at secondary school, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.

Spanish at Parbold


It is estimated that 480 million people around the world speak Spanish as their native language (making it the second most spoken language by number of native speakers). We believe that learning Spanish at an early age will give our pupils important language skills for today's world.


Spanish is taught throughout KS2 for 1 hour a week by specialist language teachers. The focus of study in our Spanish lessons is on practical communication.
