We'll help you pack a lot into a short trip to France
The Opal Coast guarantees an abundance of culture, French language and fun! This rich region offers food workshops, city visits, WWI history sites, including the extremely immersive underground Wellington Quarry tour and La Coupole - a museum housed in a huge concrete dome amongst the hills. For pure fun, why not visit Parc Bagatelle or the beautiful Le Touquet beach to let off some steam. Just a short coach ride from our hotel are excursions to Boulogne-Sur-Mer where students can explore the historic fishing port and the huge Nausicaá national sea centre, Europe’s largest aquarium, which is as educational as it is impressive and offers a particular focus on oceans and climate change. Whatever your curriculum focus, we'll work with you to create a tailor-made itinerary to suit your learning objectives.

A wealth of possibilities for students just a short hop from the UK
A school trip to the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France is often the first time school children will experience the excitement of being in another country without a parent or guardian. This small taste of independence is a brilliant confidence and character-building tool, as well as important for bridging friendships between classmates and respect for teachers. What makes the Opal Coast a popular choice is the opportunity to pack a lot into a school trip without heading too far and only travelling by coach and ferry.
