Paris School Trips

Paris like any big city, contains myriad options for school visits; museums, art galleries theme parks and more. There are some great opportunities to offer cross curricular trips, combining French language with subjects such as business, arts and history. If you have never taken your school group to Paris before, you are missing out. This city has everything you could possible want for a successful educational visit. Have a read through some of the study tours below and then put a school trip to Paris at the top of your agenda.

If you live in the south of England, you are probably closer to France than to many parts of mid and northern England. This, together with French being the main language taught in schools, makes France an appealing destination for your annual school trip. School trips to Paris are especially easy, especially if your school is in the south, as the capital is just a short drive from the ferry ports of Northern France. Other easily accessible locations are ideally suited for human and physical geography trips, and of course sites of huge historic interest relating to the battles of both World Wars.

If you are researching your school trips to Paris, bookmark this page and click through for full descriptions of a wide range of high quality school tours and visits.
