France Explorer at château du tertre for secondary schools

Do you remember...?

Looking up at the Eiffel tower? The taste of a fresh, warm croissant? Your first exchange in French with a local? The hustle and bustle of a French market town? Standing in front of the Mona Lisa for the first time?

There’s simply nothing to beat it.

First-hand experience, often for the first time. Priceless.

You’ll want to plan an itinerary to inspire your students, of course.

We can help you organise a tailor-made programme of outings. We can advise on our most popular trips, on free trips – on the trips that best meet your group’s needs.

We plan itineraries we know you’ll love.

And to ensure you feel completely at ease, we give you a PGL Tour Leader to accompany you on your excursions and to smooth things along. It’s a little more reassurance for you when you have a group of children abroad.


Getting out there is what it’s all about.
It’s the perfect introduction to the history, culture and lifestyle in France, brought to life with PGL to inspire and motivate senior school pupils.

Adventure: The PGL Bonus
Bring out the best in each of your students with unique PGL adventure sessions that will promote teamwork, communication and leadership skills. They’ll help enhance the learning experience by strengthening the dynamics of your group, complementing your excursion programme perfectly.

An Evening Programme
For even more PGL value, you’ll love the themed activities (such as making crêpes) that give each of your students even more to take home as well as keeping them engaged and entertained well into the evening.
