Fifteen sixth formers were accompanied by eight staff for the week-long trip to the PGL Grande-Romaine chateau located outside Paris.

The group explored the market of the small town of Fontainebleau, completing a town trail and shopping challenge which required them to speak a little French.

They ate lunch beneath the Eiffel Tower, took a cruise along the River Seine and climbed up to the Sacre Coeur basilica in Montmartre. Back at the chateau, students enjoyed making crepes, taking part in a mini Olympics, swimming and a disco.

The final day was spent at Disneyland where the students enjoyed the rides and the parade.

Emma Bird, sith form co-ordinator, said: “We are so proud of the students who experienced everything (including eating snails) with enthusiasm and have made memories which will last them a lifetime. They were a credit to the academy.”
