Walden School has linked up with College Sainte Therese in Quimper, Brittany, a historical town at the heart of Breton culture.

Pupils stayed with host families during their trip before welcoming their French partners back to Saffron Walden for a visit to explore the town and other sights.

While in France, the students were able to brush up on their French speaking and also attended lessons at College Sainte Therese, while exploring the town of Quimper.

Jane Pearce, head of French at Walden School, said: “The exchange was a great success and provided a brilliant opportunity for those who are taking GCSE French to practice their French speaking.
