Dear Education Professional,

I am pleased to have the opportunity to show you how we organise school tours to Normandy. What we do is different and it really does work! I realise how busy most teachers are these days, but I hope that you can find the time to at least browse through these web pages to see for yourself what we are offering.

  • We organise every aspect of your tour and provide a full programme for you in France, leaving you freer to concentrate on loco parentis responsibilities.

  • All of our tours have an activities element built in (e.g. canoeing, climbing, archery) provided by our full time team of French native staff.

  • We have programmes that are especially designed for Primary, Middle, Secondary and Sixth Forms, and for every level of French including complete beginner.

If you have any questions at all, please phone one of our friendly and helpful staff on 01273 202999. We will be happy to help and hope to hear from you.

Yours sincerely

Nicolas Goddard, Managing Director

Le Château de la Baudonnière: an alternative to a French exchangePublished in the SATIPS Language Broadsheet"For many years, I organised exchange trips to many different areas of France. The trips lasted between three days and two weeks and I took both boys and girls aged between nine and thirteen. The children were all paired with French children of the same age and interests and were given a real insight into French family life. I organised outings during the day, some of them for the English and French children together, others just for the English children.
