Normandy – a rich, cross-curriculum location

History and language studies

A school trip to the Normandy landing beaches will enable your students to gain a greater insight into the monumental events that took place on D-Day in 1945. Our dedicated and specially trained animateurs will lead your school tour, ensuring you get the most out of each visit, both from a historical and linguistic perspective. Each visit and experience is seen as an opportunity to speak and understand the French language, as well as seeing at first-hand some of the most momentous arenas of World War II.

Voyager School Travel staff will also provide a full evening programme and help each pupil to complete their own special workbook. We have programmes that are especially designed for primary, middle, secondary and sixth forms, and for every level of French including complete beginner.

Animateurs

Our French native staff team of professional animateurs will accompany you throughout the school trip. They will be guiding your visits and speaking in French with your group, in the evenings and at mealtimes. Not only will they ensure your group are speaking French at every opportunity, they will make it fun and their local knowledge will guarantee you get the most out of every visit.

Evening entertainments

We have many tried and tested evening entertainment options, including giving your students the opportunity to meet and mix with local French students, promoting better mutual understanding within a fun environment. As ever, we encourage students to speak and listen to French at every opportunity, but our animateurs will always be on hand to offer support.
