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.

Authentic language-learning and cultural experiences leave your KS3 and KS4 (S1 – S4) students with renewed enthusiasm for France and all things French; this leads to increased motivation and interest in taking French study to a higher level – and of course better examination results.
Your students will get the most from their French Explorer course as it’s delivered with the support of a dedicated and trained PGL Tour Leader who will be familiar with your excursion programme and destinations.
On-site adventure activities as part of the mix improve group dynamics, teamwork and communication skills.
Your pupils receive an all-round learning experience, but above all your group leaves France with greatly improved confidence and enthusiasm for the language and the country.
Return travel by executive coach is included in the cost of your trip. Your coach is also available for excursions once you arrive at your PGL centre, subject to EU drivers’ hours regulations.
To minimise your journey time and make the most of your time away we offer a number of Channel crossings. Dover-Calais is included as standard in the cost of our tours but alternative crossings are available on request. You can choose Dover-Dunkirk by ferry or Folkestone-Calais by Eurotunnel at no additional charge. A small supplement may apply to crossings from Portsmouth to Caen and Cherbourg. Please contact our Tour Organisers to discuss alternative Channel crossings including air and Eurostar.
