59 Marches School pupils and staff headed for Paris as part of their Languages lessons.

The MFL trip to Paris took place over half term which allowed pupils in Years 7 to 10 to attend and to be immersed in French language and culture.

The group left very early on Thursday morning and travelled by coach and ferry. They visited Sacré Coeur (a cathedral overlooking the city) and Montmartre, which is an area known for its artists and quirkiness.

On Friday they visited the Eiffel Tower, did a boat cruise along the river Seine, saw the Arc de Triomphe and had some shopping time on the Champs Élysées, before heading up the fastest lift in Europe, Tour Montparnasse, to witness some of the most amazing views in Paris. They then visited Notre Dame and had some more shopping time before having dinner in the Latin Quarter.

On Saturday they went to Disneyland before heading home on Sunday along with all of their souvenirs from a truly memorable trip.

Mrs Kellie Spencer, Associate Assistant Director of MFL, at the Marches School commented: “The ability to speak another language is a vital skill in a young person’s life and there is no better way for someone to learn a language than to witness and use it first-hand. The trip to Paris was a resounding success and we look forward to taking more keen language learners on trips in the near future”.
