The 2014 French Exchange

trip1The French Exchange with Uzès in the south of France was launched last week.  Students in Year 9 will be able to pair up with a French Exchange partner and start communicating as soon as application forms are in after 2 December.

Last year, our students had a wonderful exchange, showing their new friends around Cambridge and then, in June, visiting the beautiful and sunny region we are partnered with.  We visited the breathtaking Pont du Gard aqueduct near Uzès, the amphitheatre in Nîmes and the papal seat at Avignon (better know to most of us from the Sur le pont d’Avignon song!)  It was unforgettable.

No house is too small for an exchange student so, if you are in Year 9, give it a go!  You will love it and you will learn so much.

Au revoir!
