Language Immersion and Cultural Tour For Schools

Doodle 1

The Normandy Experience programme allows students to experience the local culture of Normandy through a series of excursions and visits that can be adapted for students of preparatory, primary, middle, secondary and sixth form students and for every level of French including complete beginner. 

The Normandy experience programme is more visit based than the Château residential trip, excursions that can include Bayeux, Mont St. Michel and local markets, goats cheese farm, North Normandy landing beaches and many more. Please see the visits page for further details and all your options. Your Normandy experience will also include one day or two half-days of activities at Château de la Baudonnière which will include activities such as archery, climbing, fencing, initiative exercises and many more.

School groups stay in one of our Normandy centres such as Etoile de la Mer or Villa Eole with one of our special trained animateurs who will be with you and your group throughout your tour. The animateur will help to create a French language immersion experience for your group and will get your pupils listening to French and speaking it. This will be supported by our Normandy Experience workbook which will be completed in French by each pupil during the stay.

What Makes Normandy Experience a Success

Choose your Excursions

There are plenty of educational visits for you to choose from in Normandy. We'll organise them for you and our French staff will lead the excursions.

Learn While Doing

Pupils enjoy activities such as orienteering, archery, fencing and climbing, all instructed in French at a level suitable for the age group. Pupils will have to speak French if they want to participate - it's a formula that works!

Personal Attention

You will have your own animateur, a native French tour manager in France who spends the whole time with you and your group, ensuring you get the most out of your school trip.

For All Abilities 

Your animateur will tailor all activities and visits to suit the age of your school group, from young children to sixth form students. They enjoy a challenge and will get even the most reluctant students speaking French!
