A state-funded bilingual primary school will open in Brighton this September.
The Bilingual Primary School, which will teach the national curriculum in both Spanish and English, is not the first bilingual school in England but they are far from common.
While Welsh medium schools, where lessons are taught mainly in Welsh, have been common in Wales for many years, schools that offer lessons in a language other than English are still something of a rarity in England.
The first state-funded school to offer lessons in two languages (rather than language lessons) started in London.
