On 5 July 2018, leaving early evening, 36 Year 7 pupils and five members of staff travelled to Chateau Beaumont, Laval in the Loire Valley. The journey was long but it was well worth it.
On arrival, we were greeted by glorious sunshine and this lasted for the whole weekend. During the visit pupils experienced lots of French culture and enjoyed their time at Fougères Castle and the impressive Mont Saint Michel. Pupils also had the opportunity to speak to the locals in French whilst at the market.
