33 students from Years 8 and 9 have just returned from a fantastic weekend in Rue, Amiens in the North of France. Students had the opportunity to experience French culture and to practise their French, whilst staying in a Chateau built for Louis XIV around 1714.

 During their stay students made mayonnaise with a French chef, learnt how to make and tasted sweets at the sweet factory and ate the local delicacies, including frogs legs and snails! Students also used their French at the market, visited the cathedral and city of Amiens and watched a traditional French carnival.

 A great time was had by all students and staff and we are looking forward to returning to the chateau next year!
