In February 2013, KS5 pupils were invited to attend a conference in Paris for students of French. The conference covered topic areas relevant to the KS5 syllabus and allowed pupils an opportunity to take part in debates and ask questions. While in Paris, we also visited the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, le tour Montparnasse and had a river boat cruise on the Seine.
Year 13 French students are studying the region of Provence as one of the cultural topics for their A2 French exam. In February 2014, six students were lucky enough to spend four days in Provence on a custom made tour exploring the industries, multiculturalism, history and climate of the area. Visits included Les Baux de Provence, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Avignon; Palais des Papes& le Pont d’Avignon and Marseille among others.
