Pau 2024


Eight students in year 12 had the opportunity to spend a week at the Lycée Barthou – a Sixth Form college in Pau in the south-west of France.

The students spent the majority of the week in school attending lessons with their French partners in a variety of subjects – including ones never studied before! They enjoyed contrasting the many differences in the English and French education systems as well as speaking and listening to lots of French.

At the weekend they all spent time with their families. Some visited the Pyrenees, some went skiing, and some visited the Basque Country as well as coming together for group events such as Laser Tag.
During the afternoons, the students had a guided tour of the castle (the birthplace of Henri IV in 1553) as well as the town’s art museum. There were also plenty of visits to a pâtisserie to buy macarons.

Everyone had a wonderful time and are busily arranging for their partners to come to England later in the year.
