The Modern Foreign Languages Department were delighted to welcome back the French exchange programme, allowing a group of nineteen Fourth Form pupils to travel to the idyllic Marignane, in the South East of France. Pupils were able to put the French they have been studying in their lessons into practice, living with their local exchange family whose children attend the collège Saint-Louis Sainte-Marie.
Pupils spent a few fulfilling days experiencing life with their new families, some embarking on extraordinary trips on a yacht, hiking in the area or visiting the beach. Staff organised a visit to Aix en Provence, including lunch in a traditional restaurant and a stroll through the old town streets. The sun was certainly shining on the group for their boat trip to the national park of Les Calanques, drawing to a close a wonderful and enriching trip for all involved.
We look forward to their return visit in June.
