Subject Specific Excursions

Bagatelle Theme Park

Ride on a roller coaster, discover a gold mine, take to the race-track then cool off on the water-rides. This exciting theme park set in attractive wooded countryside has a French twist and is a popular excursion for our school groups.

Pegasus Bridge Museum

Follow the heroic story of the flight to Normandy and the capture of this vital location. Walk across the original bridge and peek into the astonishing gliders; this visit presents a relatively easy to understand and important event of WWII history.

Nausicaa Sea Life Centre

Meet the sea lions, clownfish and sharks, feel the rough texture of a ray's back and watch penguins gulping down their dinner. Europe’s largest aquarium is a fantastic resource to develop an understanding of marine ecology and conservation issues.

Snail Farm

Enter the tiny world of the snail. Watch their antennae see, taste and explore. Investigate the molluscs’ adaptations and life cycle, from egg-hatching in the spring to winter hibernation. Appreciate the importance of snail production for French cuisine.


Children will love discovering the chemistry of chocolate! Watch it heated, stirred, moulded and decorated into a fabulous display of novelty shapes. Contrast the dark rich chocolate of at least 70% cocoa with our familiar UK chocolate.

La Coupole

A huge bunker built as a launch pad for Hitler's planned V2 rocket attack on London. Primary groups can explore the technology of warfare, find out what life was like under German occupation and discover how children adapted to wartime life.

Visit a local Bakery

Discover the science that goes into bread-making. Watch the traditional making and baking of baguettes, brioches and pastries. Practise simple French language skills ordering pains au chocolat or fresh croissants to take away.
