Bienvenidos a español
At Richmond Hill Primary Academy all our pupils from Year 3 through to Year 6 learn Spanish. Learning Spanish can be beneficial in both personal and professional lifestyle. Learning to speak Spanish at a young age could help a child to succeed throughout his / her life. Developing linguistic skills later on in life or to help with the ever growing society.
