About Le Pré Catelan

For a secondary school trip to France's Opal Coast, Le Pré Catelan is the perfect choice, especially for years 7-8. It’s a great location to enjoy some authentic cultural experiences such as a visit to Le Touquet market or a traditional boulangerie, and there are some unique learning opportunities presented by the range of WWI visits available.

Students practise their language skills as they explore local places of interest on one of our French Language and Culture courses. And at the end of an exciting day, adventure activities are available in the centre grounds and on the beach - a 10-minute walk away.
