Globalisation of world markets and increasing opportunities for travel are creating an environment in which language skills can open more and more doors. Spanish A Level builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills gained at GCSE. The course focuses on how Spanish-speaking society has been shaped, socially and culturally, and how it continues to change. Using authentic spoken and written materials, aspects of the social context are studied, together with aspects of the artistic life of Spanish-speaking countries. It fosters a range of transferable skills including communication, critical thinking, research skills and creativity, which are valuable to the individual and society.
- Political and artistic culture
- Literary Texts and Films
Minimum Entry Requirements

Combines well with…
Languages really come into their own when set alongside expertise in another field. It is therefore reasonable to suggest that Spanish combines well with all other A Levels.
Specialist language occupations include interpreting, translating and teaching. However, in an increasingly international environment, practically any job (whether based in the UK or abroad) can involve the use of languages. For those who go on to higher education, it is possible to study Spanish alongside a wide range of other subjects.
