The acquisition of a foreign language offers students an appreciation of other cultures and societies, the ability to converse confidently with native speakers on holiday and, of course most importantly, it opens many avenues for further study in the Sixth Form, at university and for the world of work.

I had no idea what to expect for the next 19 days but on the 12th July 2017 we said goodbye to our anxious parents and set off on a coach to Heathrow airport for a once in a lifetime opportunity. The good spirit didn’t last long as 2 hours into the trip the coach broke down, but at least it gave us a chance to grab one last McDonalds before we headed off. With the first mishap out of the way, we were set to go on a brand-new luxury coach, all the way to our first destination to start the expedition.

The excitement of over a year’s fundraising and team building exercises had lead up to the moment the plane left the runway, we were heading off for “darkest Peru” as Paddington would say.

After 3 flights, many aeroplane meals and almost 24 hours travelling we finally arrived at Cusco airport. With all the hustle and bustle of the new and wonderful surroundings it was hard to take in this new eye-opening world that we had just entered that was so different from our own.

Hello, I am Harvey Best and I am here to talk about the school French trip with the 'Draper and Co Holidays Team' (DaCHT).

Now, to begin, I was one of the students lucky enough to be given the opportunity to visit the great country of France. It was 'wunderbar’, as the French would say. To start, I must rate the 'Draper and Co Travel package' as more than satisfactory, as their main priorities to ensure all the students had comfort, relaxation and, most of all, pit stops throughout the entirety of the journey. The coach driver, Neil, was a very pleasant man with very good humour and was very good when it came to putting up with a bunch of annoying kids on a coach for 20 hours (which is a job only the best of the best can do).

Then we move onto the 'Draper and Co Lodging and PGL package' which, again, was of very good standards. The Château was a lovely art-deco, pre 19th century style building with lots of acreage of land to facilitate sleeping quarters, badminton nets and football pitch, etc. The staff from PGL were very caring and our rep, Gregor, was a very fun chap from Scotland (which was good because it meant you didn't really have to speak too much French).

The final part of the review looks at the 'Draper and Co excursions and trips package' which was very good indeed. The old town that we visited, Fougères, was lovely and many crêpes were available for those who craved them. The beach was a very pleasant day out, even in spite of the rain, and the trip to the hypermarket gave all the students a top-notch chance to buy gifts, presents and plenty of scran for the journey home.

Overall, the 'Draper and Co Holiday Team' organize an extremely good trip and I would highly recommend that every student should give it a go.
