School trips to France are the perfect choice for many subjects, from French and history to art, geography and business studies, among others, thanks to the incredible diversity of activities and visits available.
Why visit France?
Our most popular school trip destination
France is by far our most popular school trip destination. This is for two very important reasons. Firstly, it offers exciting opportunities to bring almost any subject to life.
And secondly, the short journey times from the UK mean that educational tours to France can work for all budgets and timeframes because you can choose to travel by coach. This means that school trips to France are generally very affordable and work well for any duration, from a day trip to a whole week!
A rich, vibrant culture
France is famous for its rich culture and many groups choose to visit France on a school trip simply for the opportunity to experience this. Others want to learn more about the country's art or fashion.
And, of course, for French-language school trips, the opportunity to explore French culture through the French language is an unforgettable experience that will not only spark a passion for France in your students, it will also give them a huge boost of confidence in their language skills.
On a school trip to France, your students could learn about the experience of the soldiers in the trenches of WW1. Or they could discover how D-Day was the beginning of the end of WW2. You could travel even further back in time, to explore the Paris of the French Revolution!
The Auvergne in central France is the perfect destination for a geography school trip designed to help students learn more about volcanoes and rivers, and how powerful they are in terms of shaping the surrounding landscape. And the best bit is, you can get there by coach, reducing the environmental impact of your trip.
One thing you can be certain of with a school trip to France is that your students won’t go hungry. Of course, France is famous for its cuisine and this makes it incredibly popular for food technology school trips.
But many of our other groups also choose to include some food-based activities in their itineraries too! One of the highlights for many French groups, for example, is the opportunity to visit a local bakery and learn about the cultural significance of bread and how it’s made by a real French baker.
