Twenty seven Form I and II boys set off for the Loire Valley on Sunday 22 October.
Over the next four days, they visited the sumptuous royal chateaux of Chambord, Chenonceau and Blois; they went on a very informative cruise on the Cher river, and discovered its key role during WW2.
Also, in complete contrast, they spent a day in the Futuroscope where everyone had a lot of fun in the fast and furious 4D attractions. There was also the opportunity to experience another aspect of French culture; shopping in a North African market in Blois. During this fantastic foreign sojourn there were also many chances to sample French cuisine- they particularly enjoyed the crêpes!
