The Salamanca trip offers a huge amount of independence to the participants and is a chance for our Sixth Form students to really spread their wings. Whilst the trip is facilitated by the Grange Spanish department, students are responsible for organising their own travel, accommodation and itinerary.
Several groups of two or three made the journey over the course of a few weeks. As well as lessons, students enjoyed sampling Spanish culture in Salamanca, visiting the Plaza Mayor, the beautiful parks and magnificent Cathedral during the day and, of course, the tapas restaurants and clubs at night. Many students also managed to spend a few days in Madrid.
“The best part about the first few days in Salamanca was the excitement of learning about a new place and our professors were able to recommend us places to eat and to visit; however we all loved, after the first couple of days, how the historical, warm town began to feel familiar and soon we started to feel like locals,” wrote Upper Sixth students Cerys Walker, Elle Woods-Marshall and Lois Ruebotham.
