During the annual rugby exchanges, the boys take part in friendly international matches and sporting activities. Whenever possible they attend an international or league game in the country hosting. In the past, they have attended games at the Stade de France and at Murrayfield. The boys also enjoy a range of cultural visits and stay with the family of their corresponding shirt number.
As part of their week in France, Junior School exchange pupils spend some time in classes with their French hosts on cultural visits to Paris and the surrounding area.
Senior School pupils spend a week in class at Saint-Dominique and they shadow their hosts. This total immersion in the French language allows them to make rapid progress in comprehension and speaking and it also provides a boost to the pupils’ confidence.
