School Trips to Normandy

A school trip to Normandy is a great choice for groups studying French, history, and food technology, as there are so many fascinating visits here just waiting to be explored!

With its close historical ties with Britain and its healthy gastronomic reputation, it’s no surprise that Normandy is such a popular school trip destination. You can explore the D-Day Landings beaches, or head to local producers to learn more about the local cuisine, while practising your French, of course!

Whatever your reason for visiting, we’ll tailor make your school trip to Normandy to ensure that it suits your curriculum and specific learning objectives.

Why visit Normandy?

Explore the D-Day beaches

There’s plenty of history to discover in Normandy, from William the Conqueror to Joan of Arc and the D-Day landings of WW2.

And what’s really fascinating for British students is how closely tied the region’s history is to that of the UK. In fact, Normandy was ruled from England by Norman kings for nearly two centuries.

Any school trip to Normandy should include visits to the D-Day beaches, where students can learn more about the beginning of the end of WW2, and the Bayeux Tapestry, where they can learn more about the Norman conquest of England.  

Get your students talking!

Normandy is often referred to as France’s answer to Devon, with neighbouring Brittany the Gallic version of Cornwall. And it certainly does offer a similarly relaxed, seaside atmosphere, free of the tourist masses attracted to its Celtic neighbour.

This makes Normandy an excellent choice for a French school trip that will allow your students to immerse themselves in the French language and culture.

We also offer a very special accommodation option in Normandy, close to the D-Day beaches. The accommodation is completely self-contained in the centre of a lovely, quiet village and offers excellent facilities. This is an ideal, safe base for school groups on an educational tour to Normandy.

The unbelievable food

Whatever your reason for visiting Normandy, make sure you take some time to enjoy some of the tasty treats produced here. We can arrange visits to a local bakery and a producer of local caramel, which are always popular visits with students!

Normandy’s landscape mainly consists of rolling countryside dotted with apple orchards and rich pasture for dairy herds. It’s also one of the best places for mussels, oysters and scallops in France.

This abundance of exceptional produce makes Normandy a particularly good option for a food technology school trip, with opportunities to explore the local cheese and confectionary, as well as finding out how cider, pommeau and Calvados are brewed.
