Affordable off-season trips to our centres

Our market-leading school language immersion programme offers a totally French-speaking environment which gives students an unparalleled opportunity to practise the French language, in fact, a week at our Château provides school students more exposure to speaking and listening to French than is possible in a whole term of lessons back at school. The result is that our residential trips to our Normandy school language centres are sold out in peak weeks from Easter to July, with priority given to school groups which have stayed with us before.

But MFL teachers in ‘the know’ can still get their students onto our flagship language immersion programmes at La Grand’ Ferme and the Château in Normandy by travelling outside of the traditional peak season. What’s more, by choosing to visit between September and Easter, your school can enjoy priority access to our residential language immersion centres in the future.

With up to 20% off selected weeks at our Normandy centres with our off-season deals, our market-leading language immersion school trips are more in reach than you think.

Why more teachers are choosing off-peak school trips

1. Beat the waiting list

School groups willing to travel before Easter are more likely to get onto our flagship residential language immersion programme to France and will enjoy priority access in future years.

2. Students get a head start

Our market-leading school language immersion programme offers a totally French-speaking environment which supercharges students' learning at the start of the academic year – it’s no wonder that 9 out of 10 schools return to our Château every autumn.

3. Greater impact in class

Schools wanting to maximise the educational benefits of a French language trip should organise a trip to our residential Normandy centres in spring to give students plenty of opportunity to practise what they’ve learned back at school.

4. More accommodation and activity choices

Teachers who want the widest choice of activities and accommodation should consider a trip in spring when they can also enjoy plenty of individual consideration from our French team.

5. Save up to 20%

A change of dates can enable more students to benefit from our market-leading language immersion programme. Schools concerned about providing equal access to school trips should bear in mind that prices in the spring are up to 20% cheaper than the summer term.
