School History Trip to Paris

A history school trip is the only way to bring the French Revolution to life for your students!

From the origins of discontent with the Ancien Regime, through to the turmoil of the revolution itself, and the centralising influence of Napoleon, your students will gain a deeper understanding of the entire period.

Your school trip to Paris will include visits to key sites, such as the Place de Bastille and Place de la Concorde, that are associated with major events and characters of the period. Your students will also learn more about the lasting effects of the revolution on modern-day France and the French culture. And don't forget, if you want to team up with your colleagues in the French department to make this a cross-curricular trip then we can tailor the trip to ensure it meets all your learning objectives.
