Years 8 and 10
In the summer term, Years 8 and 10 students are offered a trip to Paris. These two separate and different trips are an excellent opportunity for the children to visit one of the most famous cities in the world and experience an exciting European culture.
Previously the students have stayed at the PGL centre on the outskirts of Paris, in an activity centre named Chateau de Grande Romaine.
The Year 8 trip is open to the whole year group and provides an opportunity for as many of the year group as possible to share in an experience that will bond them and provide them with a true ‘Perins memory’.
The trip in Year 10 is usually offered to students who are studying French, Art or History.
WW1 Battlefields Trip
As part of their Key Stage 4 learning, Year 9 History students have the opportunity visit the battlefields of World War One in Belgium and France. This trip gives students the opportunity to visit historical sites such as:
- Ypres – Flanders Field Museum
- The last post ceremony at the Menin Gate
- Somme Battlefields Guided Tour – Thiepval, Beaumont Hamel, Vimy Ridge & Lochnager Crater
- Tyne Cot Cemetery
- Langemarck German Cemetery
This trip is particularly poignant for students and helps bring their classroom studies to life and offers them a wealth of cultural, social and educations experiences.
Perins Ski Trip
The annual Perins ski trip gives students a fantastic skiing adventure as well as a chance to experience the culture of other countries, the trip is open to years 7, 8 and 9.
In previous years we have been to Canada, Italy and France. The trip is always popular, and students talk of memories that will last a lifetime!
