36 students are in France this week to participate in the French Exchange with our partner school, Lycée Flaubert in Rouen. As part of the programme, students have visited Paris and will visit Honfleur, Fécamp and Rouen, as well as experiencing life at school and in French families. Mr Harbron who has been running the trip for six years says "the French Exchange is the perfect opportunity for our students to take their learning beyond the classroom and see the usefulness of their languages as a life skill ".

The students spent a great weekend with their hosts and a wonderful day in hot and sunny Paris on Monday.
