On Friday 20th July, Ipswich Academy took four coaches of Year 7 and Year 10 students to Boulogne-sur-Mer in Northern France. Highlights included a trip to a chocolate factory where students made their own chocolate and a visit to Nausicaa, Europe’s largest sealife centre.
Students ordered food in French, and it was good to see the older students supporting the Year 7s.
Students were very enthusiastic, even at 4am, and their conduct throughout the trip was excellent. They were a credit to Ipswich Academy and Paradigm Trust.
