Secondary School Trips to France


School Trips to France - Rewards That Can Last a Lifetime!

Every year, UK secondary school children in their many thousands embark on the customary and much-cherished overseas school trip. Many of those children may already be experienced travellers abroad on family holidays, but there is something special about the excitement that setting off with a group of peers on an overseas adventure can generate.

Cautious advice may claim that overseas school trips are expensive and unnecessary with sufficient activities available closer to home. Here at Euroculture, we agree that any school trip must 'add value' and should not be a replication of an activity that can be undertaken more easily without travelling. We are also confident that the itineraries we produce in conjunction with teachers meet the most demanding criteria, producing positive and memorable outcomes that can last a lifetime.

School trips abroad offer a wide range of benefits to pupils of all ages, giving them the chance to sample life in another country with different food, language and culture. Teachers themselves can take huge satisfaction in planning and leading a successful tour and providing this opportunity to their young charges. The educational value can extend well beyond the duration of the trip itself once back in the classroom with the returning party feeling inspired and invigorated. Simply put, an overseas group learning experience can be one of the most rewarding aspects of a career in education - so Teachers tell us! Take a look at what they say about us!

Why Overseas? Why France?

Carrying out tasks usually only confined to a classroom in a different environment - for example, speaking and listening to a foreign language - can bring confidence and a sense of achievement to a pupil. Eating different foods at different times in new places enhances life experiences and develops skills. Spending time in different locations with a group of peers away from the established routines of home can lead to enhanced self-awareness and a new level of personal responsibility. Many pupils may discover skills and talents they didn't know they had. In short, overseas trips can be an eye-opener and a confidence-booster.

Whilst school trips now take place in far-flung locations all over the world, France is still a hugely popular destination given its proximity to the UK and the many learning opportunities available. With the recent 70th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings and the focus now turning to the Centenary of the outbreak of The Great War, there are some very obvious reasons for schools to make the trip across the Channel at the moment. And with so many other activities awaiting, there are a mass of further reasons why the journey is ideal for supporting curriculum-based teaching with a different language, rich historical and vibrant cultural experiences to be enjoyed so close to our shores. There has never been a better time to start planning your next school trip to France with Euroculture.
