Frequently asked questions about our school trips to Paris

What makes Paris such a popular destination for school trips is that it offers learners exposure to a different culture, lifestyle & language—all a short & manageable distance from the UK. The convenience and affordability of travelling via coach on the Eurotunnel also sets Paris apart from other European school trip destinations.

The city is a cultural epicentre and teachers are spoilt for choice when it comes to building their itinerary. That's why we'll use our expertise to suggest the best tried and tested visits to complement your learning objectives—with plenty of free options to help you create an exciting school trip to Paris that won't break the bank.

The best time to visit Paris on a school trip is from October to March. You can always expect the French capital to be busy, but less so during these months—plus travel expenses tend to be cheaper. The chances are you're going to have a long list of sights to tick off and whizzing back and forth across the city with 40 students in the high temperatures of June & July can be a challenge, so instead, pack your coats and get the most out of your trip by organising a school trip to Paris in autumn or winter.
