A group from Collège Jean Moulin from Albert in the Department of Somme in Northern France were very pleased to visit Priory School in Lewes, East Sussex for a week in March this year.

After a quick trip through the Eurotunnel, the French group arrived in Lewes at lunchtime on Monday. After a picnic lunch, the group spent the afternoon enjoying a Scavenger Hunt around Lewes – ideal to get to know such a beautiful and historic English town – before heading to Priory School to be warmly welcomed by their host families at Priory School.

The next day, the French group and their Priory friends had fun with bilingual activities at school, getting to know each other and practising their language skills at the same time. In the afternoon the French group really enjoyed looking around Lewes Castle before heading off home with their host families in the evening.

After more bilingual activities with their Priory hosts in the morning, the French group loved visiting Raystede Animal Sanctuary and Herstmonceaux Observatory in the afternoon .

On Thursday, the French group headed off to Brighton for a brilliant day looking around Brighton and the Lanes, viewing for miles in the i360 and later – everyone’s favourite! – shopping in Churchill Square and the Lanes before home for tea and a great evening at a Disco for all of the students together at St Marys Supporters Club in Lewes. Great friendships were cemented and promises to stay in touch flew through the air!

On their last day and after fond farewells to their host families, the French group made their way to London for a fantastic day out finished off with a fish and chip supper before arriving back in Albert, tired but happy, after a great week.
