Tips for Planning School Trips to France
France is one of the most popular destinations for school trips from the UK thanks to its convenient location and abundance of incredible activities. Even if you have been on a European school trip before, not every country or city is the same and there will be specific considerations you should make before setting off on your French voyage.
School tours to France offer an abundance of World War I and II history sites to immerse your students into this important period of our history. Visits to the D-Day Landing Beaches of Normandy and many of the local museums and information centres help to increase awareness and knowledge of the period and will give your school trip to the World War II Battlefields great educational value.
There is no better way to learn a language than to immerse yourself in it, and France offers that "je ne sais quoi" that has to be felt and experienced rather than taught. Bursting with culture, elegance and cosmopolitan "joie de vivre", language students will be inspired by their surroundings to bring their classroom learning to life. From the markets that are a French institution to the wealth of resources available at many of the cities attractions designed to enhance a visit, there is an abundance of opportunities to hear and interact with native French speakers and get an insight into French culture.
Paris has the reputation as being the ‘City of Art’ as it is home to many of the world’s most famous art galleries and museums.
