When organizing a school trip to Spain you would want to make sure that your are taking your students on a safe, educational and fun trip and that you are working together with a reliable and quality-focused language school. This is difficult to know if you have never met us in person!
We would be delighted to organize an inspection visit for a school teacher or head who is considering organizing a school trip to Spain with us. In this way you get the opportunity to get to know about our programmes, see El Puerto de Santa Maria and most importantly: get to know us in person and see how much we really care about what we do. This also provides a great way to further discuss options for a tailor-made programme.
Inspection visits include:
- free lodging up to 3 nights in Sparkville residence.
- Pick up from Jerez airport or El Puerto train station.
- An introduction to Spark Spanish school group programmes and how they can be catered to your school’s needs.
- A guided tour of Spark and El Puerto de Santa Maria, including a visit to the bullring, church and old Moorish castle.
- A visit to Cádiz, transport by ferry (weather permitting), visit of cathedral and the Torre Tavira watchtower.
- An opportunity to participate in a Spanish class and a scheduled cultural activity.
- Dinner with the Director of Education to discuss details of a trip.
* good warning needed in high season, July-September. Lodging could be in a nearby hotel if no availability in Spark. Flights are not included and neither are meals, although self-catering facilities are available in the residence.

What previous tour organizers said about inspection visits?
“Dear Inge and Douglas,
Moyra and I are now back at school and we find ourselves wishing that we were still in Spain at Spark! We had a FABULOUS time. Our itinerary was rammed with so many exciting things to see and do and places to visit and yummies to eat! Mario was a superb guide and we both know that our children will adore him!
Spark is a very special community and I know that leading it takes up so much time and emotion because it is clear that you have both invested so much of yourselves in the enterprise. I wanted you to know that it is all worth it. I am so pleased that Oakfield will be coming to you in May, and I know that the children are really really excited at the thought. I taught the Year 5 children today and told them all about it – they had so many questions and were delighted with everything I told them. They are very lucky!
So……………………………..thank you so much for giving Moyra and me such a wonderful experience. I know that my children will feel exactly the same way when they visit in May.
Kindest regards, Jane”

We had a fantastic time at the Sparks Centre, so much enjoyed it and the facilities and set up are fantastic. Please send our huge thanks to Inge, Doug, Mario and all the team who were fantastic hosts and looked after us so well. Mario was a fantastic guide and took us on a tour of Puerto de Santa María and Cádiz. Beautiful part of the country and we so much enjoyed our extended part of the trip exploring Seville. What a city! It really left its mark on us.
I think we would prefer to stay in the Woodland Village. There is so much space there and I think the experience of staying in lodges will be lovely for our pupils. Also the nearest town is quite a walk so should not tempt our pupils to astray in the night. The rooms where the classes will be held look great! And Inga said to us that the food there is very good. We also agreed while there that we will go for the kayak experience in the lake rather than the beach as it is closer and perhaps include the high ropes activity. Inga was great with answering questions that will help with my risk assessment. It really helped seeing everything.

Just a quick note to let you know that the IV went very well, and I was most impressed with the organisation and expertise at Spark. Best regards,
