We are very fortunate to have a partner school in France, the Ecole Quentin Barré, with which we have been linked since 1999.
The school is situated in the pleasant town of Saint-Quentin (North-East France) and their Year 6 children have visited us annually. In return, we have spent many happy residential visits in that town, visiting the school and its surrounding area, as well as using this as a base for visits further a field – for example, to the battlefields of the Somme and the city of Paris.
Each year, we very much look forward to renewing the friendships which have been forged, and visiting the various places of interest in their locality. At other times, we are able to keep in touch with them thanks to our ICT facilities.
The “entente cordiale” is alive and well at Aston Hall School!
