The Modern Languages Department is planning a French trip to northern France close to Amiens from Sunday 23 June 2019 to Saturday 29 June 2019. The trip is open to pupils currently studying or interested in studying French at Ross High School.

We will be travelling to France by coach and we will be staying in the grounds of a beautiful chateau built in 1725 in Glamping PODs. At the chateau there is a heated swimming pool and tennis courts and there will be evening entertainment. During our stay, we will be visiting the town of Montdidier and its market, a goat farm and a snail farm and the Somme battlefields.  Also, a French trip cannot be complete without a visit to a theme park and this time it will be Parc Asterix!

Please hand in your permission slips and Parental consent forms to any members of staff of the ML department by this Friday 31 August 2018. No deposit is required until you have received a letter with the itinerary and dates of instalments which means the trip will go ahead.
