As part of their A level studies, our sixth form students undertook a research weekend in Paris exploring the development of the motion picture house. Our intrepid group of AS and A-level French students travelled to Paris at the height of the recent flooding. Undaunted, they did research at the cinemathèque, climbed to the top of Montmartre (twice!) and saw every major monument from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower. In the true spirit of linguistic explorers, they walked a mind-boggling 50,000 steps and even managed to keep their feet dry. Tres bien.
