42 students from Years 8, 9 and 11 have just returned from a 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 goats cheese, tasted chocolate at the chocolate factory and ate the local delicacies, including frogs legs and snails. Students also conducted surveys, using their French at the market and visited the cathedral and city of Amiens.

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