Year 8 Normandy Trip 

40 year 8 students left school just before midnight on Saturday 30th June, accompanied by Mr Beeley, Mrs Hill, Miss Purdy, Mrs Casey and myself. After a long coach and ferry journey we arrived at our accommodation in Asnelles-sur-mer, a pretty seaside village on the Normandy coast (Gold Beach). We had a busy four-day stay, which included visits to the Bayeux Tapestry, the Caramels d’Isigny factory, the D-Day museum, the 360 cinema and the American cemetery. In the evenings we enjoyed games on the beach led by Mr Beeley and a quiz night organised by Miss Purdy. We enjoyed trying new food and the students tried out their French in local shops, buying ice-creams and souvenirs. Although, we all arrived back a little tired we had a great time! The students were enthusiastic and well behaved and it was a pleasure to have taken them to France.
