Visits to Disneyland Paris and the Eiffel Tower were just two of many activities enjoyed by Meadowgate Academy students on their residential trip to France.
Fifteen sixth formers were accompanied by eight staff for the week-long trip to the PGL Grande-Romaine chateau located outside Paris.
The group explored the market of the small town of Fontainebleau, completing a town trail and shopping challenge which required them to speak a little French.
They ate lunch beneath the Eiffel Tower, took a cruise along the River Seine and climbed up to the Sacre Coeur basilica in Montmartre. Back at the chateau, students enjoyed making crepes, taking part in a mini Olympics, swimming and a disco.
The final day was spent at Disneyland where the students enjoyed the rides and the parade.
Emma Bird, sith form co-ordinator, said: “We are so proud of the students who experienced everything (including eating snails) with enthusiasm and have made memories which will last them a lifetime. They were a credit to the academy.”
