For the past five years The Blue Coat School has welcomed staff and students from Montpellier’s Lycee Frederic Bazille and in January 45 students had an opportunity to sample Blue Coat School life. Paired with our Sixth Form linguists our French visitors attended a range of Year 7, 9 and A Level lessons, giving our students a chance to practice their French speaking skills and an opportunity to learn about the cultural contrasts between our countries.
Our French A level students embraced the opportunity to meet French students and it was particularly enjoyable to see how well they interacted in school and on a joint trip to a local restaurant as part of the visit.
Our staff were extremely welcoming to our French visitors and we were incredibly proud of our students who were great ambassadors for The Blue Coat School. We look forward to welcoming our French counterparts next year and we hope to visit Montpellier in the near future to develop this link even further.
