French Exchange in Paris

35 years of partnership with Issy-Les-Moulineaux!

This year our 35th exchange with the town of Issy-Les-moulineaux took place during half term.

We hosted our Parisian students in March and we were hosted in May for the reciprocal visit.

Year 8, 9 and 10 joined the exchange visiting Paris and spent 5 days in their French families. It was a fantastic experience again, we visited the Palace of Versailles, and the Eiffel Tower as well as enjoying a cruise on the River Seine followed by long walks around le Jardin des Tuileries, The St Michel Quarters and Montmartre. Students enjoyed a guided tour of the Musée d’Orsay with a focus on the evolution of painting from realism to Impressionism and Van Gogh.

More than a French trip, our exchanges emphasise on immersion and the practice of the language with their exchange families. We are proud to run these wonderful experiences every year in France, Spain and Italy.

Our students say “ It was the best experience of my life, I feel such a stronger person now!”

See you all next year for the next exchanges In Paris and Badajoz.
