Paris School Trips
The French city of Paris can be easily accessed from the UK by Plane, Ferry or Eurostar, with the majority of Primary and Secondary schools opting for the Ferry with a 4 hour journey time from Calais to the heart of Paris.
Most school trips will begin with a magnificent tour of the city, whether this is by coach through the vibrant city centre or a boat cruise along the splendid river Seine. Here your students can admire one of the most visited cities in the world , with it's golden stone facades and historical monuments all illuminated by the bright city lights. The highlights of these tours tend to be the popular attractions such as Champs Elysées, the Stade De France (the countries National Stadium), the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacre Coeur and of course the Eiffel Tower!
Also how could a trip to Paris be complete without visiting the world famous Disneyland Paris! Here your students can have a fun filled day whilst incorporating learning by using their French Language skills and guiding their way around the extravagant park. Where else in the world can you be walking through the Wild Wild West one minute and then climbing abroad a pirate ship for a swashbuckling adventure the next! It's truly a once in a lifetime experience for your pupils!

Paris School Trips
The majority of Paris's venues can all be linked to History, Language, Art and Culture studies, so are superb for Cross-Curricular studies. One of our particular favourites and extremely popular with Teachers, Educational Visit Coordinators and Students is visiting the Musee de Louvre, which is the worlds largest and most visited museum in the world. The Louvre has a mixture of sculptures, paintings, ceramics and much much more, with a total of over 35,000 pieces of artwork!
Fun fact – Did you know that the Eiffel Tower is said to be the only part of France that the Nazis and Hitler could not conquer! How is this I hear you ask? Well this is due to the French actually cutting the cable on the lift!
French language trips
Our second favourite activity has to be touring the Parisian food markets and cafes, here you will find a huge selection of French delicacies such as Goats Cheese, Frogs legs, Escargots (Snails baked in their shells) and many more delights. Your students will also be immersed in the french language around the Parisian Markets, where they can practise their french language skills and accents with the local market traders.
