We aim to develop skills, confidence and creativity in the four key areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Teachers are specialised, experienced and enthusiastic, using a wide range of activities and strategies to help students enjoy learning foreign languages while developing their linguistic ability. Authentic resources and the use of the foreign language in and outside the classroom are considered a vital part of languages teaching at Silverdale and the department offers a range of extracurricular activities and trips abroad in order to enhance the language learning experience at our school.


Spanish covers a wide range of topics, e.g. social issues and trends, multiculturalism in Spanish-speaking society, political and artistic culture, as well as aspects of political life in the Spanish-speaking world.

In the first year of A-level students will study a film, and in the second year they will study a book

How will it be delivered?

Students will undertake the listening/writing/reading and speaking exams at the end of the second year. All students will complete an internal transition exam at the end of Year 12.

Your next steps...

Besides the traditional paths of interpreting, translating and teaching, students with language skills are in demand. These skills can be used in almost any career, particularly in businesses that trade internationally. There are also opportunities to work for the diplomatic service.

There are many degree courses in languages but you could also choose to combine Spanish with a new language or a subject from a different area such as politics, music, engineering or law.
