French Exchange

The French Exchange programme with the Lycée Albert Camus in Mourenx, near Pau, has been running very successfully for eight years.

Hermitage pupils from S4 - S6 have the opportunity to spend up to a week living with a French family and experience their way of life. This is reciprocated when the French pupils stay with their host family in Scotland.

By attending classes in our partner school, sampling the local cuisine and taking part in cultural activities and excursions, pupils have the chance to enhance their linguistic skills, establish new friendships and broaden their horizons.

Currently, Hermitage pupils spend seven days in France in September. Their French Exchange partners visit us in June, again for seven days. This cost of the trip is usually around £315.
