With Paris just a short hop across the Channel, you can’t go wrong with a school day trip to Paris if you’re short on time and budget but still want your students to experience linguistic and cultural immersion!

Whether you want to do a bit of sightseeing or prefer to dive straight into the cultural attractions, one thing is certain – this school trip will inspire your students to develop their interest in Paris and France as a whole.

It will also give your students the precious experience of using their French to communicate with native speakers, giving them confidence and opening them up to new experiences and cultures.

Key Stage 3 students will find this trip helps them to develop their vocabulary around various themes, including exploring the town, food and drink and cultural traditions.

GCSE students will really enjoy this opportunity to improve their understanding of French culture and identity. They’ll also have the opportunity to develop and consolidate their vocabulary around various themes, including food, drink and eating out, and travel and tourism.

A-level students who will have a more developed appreciation of French culture will love this opportunity to delve deeper into the artistic and political culture. They’ll also develop their understanding of various aspects of French-speaking culture.

Think you might prefer to stay a little longer? We also offer multi-day trips to Paris, which can include a day at Disneyland® Paris!
