Leicester Grammar School trip to Spain 2023

School Trip to Spain: El Puerto, Sevilla, Cadiz and Sancti Petri.

Leicester Grammar – June 2023

We were happy to welcome Leicester Grammar School in El Puerto de Santa María, the group stayed with us in our  Spark Residence where they took part in our Spanish classes and learned about the Spanish culture through the cultural activities that the Spark team had organized.

Their trips started on monday with their arrival at Gibraltar where they were picked up by the Chaperone. Everyone were then transferred to El Puerto, once arrived to the Spark residence, they all gathered to the rooftop and enjoyed together barbecue. Later, they went to the beach and had some free time by playing games.

On tuesday, everyone started with a Spanish lesson then got ready to walk around El Puerto and they got to visit the Castle. After the little tour, they went to Cadiz. They visited Torre Tavira, ate churros con chocolate, walked through Genovés park and had some free time for shopping or seeing more of the city. Later that night, they ate tapas at “Lo de Ester”, they enjoyed tapas and even had a little “kuduro time” along with their teacher.

Their third day started with the “rota” activities : they had three typical Spanish classes. They made paella, had a Flamenco dance class, and in their Spanish class they made postcards about their trip. After a few rounds, everyone moved to the roof and enjoyed the delicious paella everyone made. The afternoon, the group went to Sancti Petri for kayaking, they enjoyed it, it was a really great time. After a really long day, they had their departure ceremony after dinner on the rooftop, with pictures of their stay and everyone got a Spanish certificate.

On their last day they went to have a little brekkie with churros in “el cafetin” in the center of El Puerto, then they took their bus for Gibraltar where they left us for the UK.

We enjoyed our time with Leicester Grammar here and hope it was a memorable experience for everyone.
