Pupils at Cheam School on the Hampshire/Berkshire border immersed themselves in French language, life and culture for the day

Cheam School celebrated La Journée Française with a whole assembly where pupils learnt about French culture. This was followed by themed activities and a workshop from the Big Wheel Theatre Company, with opportunities to practise French and build Eiffel Towers. The day ended with boules and a game of chasse au trésor.

Located on the Berkshire and Hampshire border on a 100-acre site, Cheam is a co-ed nursery, pre-prep and prep offering day and boarding education to children aged from 2 to 13. Former pupils include King Charles III and The Duke of Edinburgh. With a 400-year history, it first admitted girls in 1997.
