Year 7 Trip to Paris

Year 7 Residential Trip to Paris – Activities Week (Monday-Friday)

This trip is intended as a cultural immersion with a full itinerary of visits in and around Paris. We will also spend one day at Disneyland Paris and, as we are staying at a PGL centre, students will have the opportunity to take part in a range of evening activities like swimming, outdoor games and cultural experiences including crepe making and snail tasting.

The tour operator we will be using is PGL and we will be staying in the Château Grande Romaine which is located 20 miles outside Paris. The Château is placed in a convenient location for trips into Paris but also benefits from 70 acres of stunning grounds and woodlands, enabling students to relax after a busy day of excursions. There are playing fields, a boules pitch and a heated outdoor swimming pool.

PGL are extremely experienced in running safe school activity trips in the UK and abroad and for more information regarding Château Grande Romaine you can go to their website at: www.pgl.co.uk/cgr

We will also be sending home a leaflet provided by PGL.
