Last Tuesday, the Year 13 English B group visited Gibraltar to find out more about this “piece of Britain”. However, they were surprised to discover that almost everyone they met was bilingual in Spanish and English and that Gibraltarians do not consider themselves British. They have their own police force and currency. Although it is so close to the Spanish mainland, the students agreed that it doesn’t feel like Spain either. The place seemed very compact, some parts were pretty, while others showed the less attractive military side, like the number of holes in the cliffs for cannons. It was a lovely day spent walking, enjoying the sunshine and talking to people; we left with many positive impressions.
