Annual Y6 Paris Visit


Every year, our Year 6 children are given the opportunity to visit Chateau de Grande Romaine, Paris.

During their visit, children are able to experience the vibrant culture and historic sights of the city Paris, practise their French speaking, listening & reading skills and test their mettle on some of the fastest, most thrilling rides that Disneyland Paris has to offer!

Not only that, children have the opportunity to learn about independence as they begin to prepare for secondary school.

The visit is organised through PGL.  They have been providing life-enriching adventures for memories that last a lifetime since 1957 and have organised every NIJ visit to Paris. More than 3 million children and young people have benefited from a PGL experience and more than 4,000 schools trust their school visit to PGL each year.



Accommodation is at Chateau de Grande Romaine – an ideal base on the outskirts of one of Europe’s most beautiful and diverse cities.

Chateau de Grande Romaine is a large centre set in 70 acres of grounds and it is within a thirty minute drive of Disneyland Resort Paris.

Pupils are accommodated in en-suite rooms, sleeping 4 – 8 children in each, with a mixture of single and bunk beds. The dorms are located along a secure corridor and New Invention staff rooms are located at either end and in the middle of the corridor.
