Trip to Norton Rose

On Wednesday 29th June 2016, some year 10 attended a Language Workshop at the offices of Norton Rose – a top international law firm – in London Bridge.

Pupils participated in a two-hour language course hosted by a team of the firm’s lawyers which gave them an insight into the value of languages in the private sector.

Pupils have written about their experiences in both English and Spanish.

The trip was very interesting and a great experience. We think that what helped us the most was to speak with the lawyers as we had conversations in Spanish.

One thing that we really liked was the building as it was huge. Also we could see the whole of London from the windows.

Overall we believe that the experience was really good and we think that it would be beneficial for next year’s students to do it again.

La excursión fue muy interesante, una experiencia buenísima. Creo que la cosa que nos ayudó más fue hablar con los abogados porque tuvimos charlas en español.

Una cosa que nos encantó fue el edificio, era enorme. También se podía ver todo Londres desde las ventanas.

En fin creemos que esta experiencia fue muy buena y creo que sería muy beneficio volver a hacerlo para los alumnos de los años próximos.”
