Students see Paris sights

Paris trip

Students in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Our students took the opportunity to see the sights of Paris as part of their A Level English Language and Literature course.

The trip to the French capital gave students an opportunity to see many of the landmarks they have written about in their Paris anthologies over recent months.

Activities included seeing the Eiffel Tower, a trip down the River Seine and a visit to the world famous Père Lachaise Cemetery, where writers Honoré de Balzac and Oscar Wilde are buried.

The students also visited the city’s catacombs, The Louvre, the Musee D’Orsay and Disneyland Paris.

Louis Piper, 17, from Darton, said: “Visiting the catacombs was a great way to start the day. I never thought I’d enjoy walking through a maze of bones but it was interesting and enjoyable.”

Adam Calvert, 17, from Doncaster, added: “I enjoyed trying new foods, experiencing a different culture and making new friendships. Also, we will all remember with laughter piling on and off the Paris metro at speed.”
