Headteacher's Welcome Message
I would like to welcome you to Audenshaw School's Website. I hope that you enjoy visiting it and by doing so will gain a clearer idea of all that goes on within the school whether this is academic achievements, our wide range of extra-curricular activities on offer or our relationships with the wider local and global communities. I strongly believe that it is vital to celebrate the successes of our school and have designed the website to highlight these key areas. The school has always and will always place huge emphasis on academic achievement. We have a long and proud tradition of academic success and are proud of our standing within the community and also what our students go on to achieve after they leave the school. I hope that our traditional yet forward thinking ethos has been reflected in the stories and images on the pages of our website.
Jeanette Saw, Headteacher

KS5 Spanish

Sixth Form (KS5) Spanish

(Examination Board: AQA)

Learning a language at A Level is invaluable whatever your future career plans are. At university you can continue with your language alongside another subject (accounting, law, medicine, engineering…) and then spend one of your university years abroad on an Erasmus exchange – or even study South America. If you enjoy learning languages and you can successfully learn vocabulary and basic grammar, you should definitely consider pursuing a language at A Level. Students must have studied Spanish at GCSE and are usually expected to have achieved a grade ‘B’ or better.

 

The work is varied and interesting and will introduce you to a wide range of topics, while at the same time developing your language skills to a very high level. Spanish examines such topics as family and relationships, education, jobs and careers, the mass media, pollution, conservation, immigration, multiculturalism, health issues, transport, racism, the future of Europe and Science and Technology. You will use technology extensively to help with your language learning. You will read and understand articles and works of Spanish Literature, listen to radio broadcasts and discuss these topics with confidence, all in Spanish.

Teaching materials are mainly taken from current articles and television and radio broadcasts. You will also have a regular timetable slot with a Spanish assistant in order to concentrate specifically on conversation. With small group sizes, students find they quickly make progress. An opportunity for an exchange visit will be arranged during the course of the two years.

 

A qualification in a modern language carries particular prestige and proof of ability. Possible careers include teaching, bilingual secretary work, EU business and banking, translation and interpreting, conference organising and tourism management.

Languages at A-Level are taught as a two-year A-Level course. Topics covered are:

Modern & traditional values in the Spanish-speaking world

- Changing families

- Attitudes towards marriage/divorce

- The influence of the Catholic Church

Cyberspace
