Upper and lower sixth French students have just returned from a fabulous week in France after taking part in an exchange programme with partner school: Lycée Marguerite de Flandre, Lille. Immersed in French culture and living with a french family the students were able to develop their language skills in preparation for the upcoming summer examinations. On their day trip to Paris, with the sun splitting the sky, pupils and teachers were able to take full advantage of all of the wonderful sites that Paris had to offer, including the Notre Dame and the famous Eiffel Tower. The trip also gave the students the chance to see the stark contrast between the education system here and in France, with school days in France often finishing at 5.30. A brilliant trip had by all with many fond memories shared and many lifelong friendships formed!
