26 of our year 9 and year 10 French and Photography GCSE students went to Paris from the 11th to the 13th July. An early departure on Monday allowed all of them to enjoy from the river Seine, the view of some of the most famous Parisian landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the museum of the Louvres, Notre-Dame and many more. In the morning of their second day, they went up to the top of the Montparnasse Tower (210metres high), thus enjoying a 360 degrees view of Paris. This was followed by a quest to solve a number of puzzles and enigmas, starting from the pyramid at the Louvres museum through to le jardin des Tuileries, across la place de la Concorde, along the Champs-Élysés and to le petit Palais. We stopped over briefly in Boulogne for a little shopping on our way back to the ferry port of Calais.
Our students were absolutely amazing and displayed one of our most important values of kindness in many situations within this 3 day trip.
