Hola Madrid!

Hola Madrid!

IMG_3615This Easter, 21 of our luckiest students and 3 teachers spent 4 days of their holiday in Madrid, the gorgeous capital of Spain, on a trip led by our Head of Modern Foreign Languages Mr Dean Evans.


During the visit, the students dined at the Hard Rock Cafe, followed in the steps of football heroes at the Real Madrid stadium and enjoyed the thrills and spills of the Warner Brother theme park. Mr Evans had his picture taken with Daffy Duck and Kelsey couldn't wait to strike a pose with Superman!


Our hostel was right next to the famous Plaza Mayor and plenty of retail therapy took place at the Puerta del Sol. IMG_3656The gorgeous terrace cafes, street artists and plentiful retail outlets gave everyone plenty to look at!
Ice Skating and the massively famous Prado Museum were also on our list of to-dos! We fitted these fabulous visits in amongst bus tours and trips to and from restaurants and shopping trips, which gave our students plenty of chances to practice their best Spanish.

Mr Evans says, "This is the Academy's second trip to Madrid so next year IMG_3618we might try the varied delights of Valencia just to make a change and explore pastures new.

The students really benefit from the chance to immerse themselves in a Spanish environment and come back brimming with confidence in their Spanish speaking."
