On Wednesday 8th July a group of 64 Year 7 students went to France for the day - two weeks later than planned (thank you, ferry workers of Calais!). Despite the very early start everyone was excited to get going and thoroughly enjoyed the ferry trip - a new experience for some. After successfully finding their sea legs, they spoke French in the market at Audruicq, buying all manner of souvenirs - and plenty of sweets!
Fortunately the rain passed us by and we spent a couple of hours on a variety of different small boats at Eurolac, tucking in to a delicious crepe while there. Finally we headed to Cité Europe - another chance to speak French in the shops and buy some treats and souvenirs - before heading back to Chertsey.
All in all a fantastic day, and the students did themselves - and their teachers - proud! Special thanks to Ms Thompson and all the staff for rearranging the trip at short notice.
