Secondary schools and further education (11-18s)

School trips for all ages

CPA Lathus offers school field trips for High school and Further education students, for a half-day, day or a residential stay. You can choose between a themed programme of actvities, or build your own programme of activities (à la carte).

It is a great way to encourage interaction between students and for them to learn about living together.

All our activities are supervised by qualified professional instructors and by local artists.

Our approach...

CPA Lathus draws on practical hands-on experiences and interaction. Our aim is to encourage responsible and respectful behaviour towards the environment. All the activities are planned to stimulate solidarity, mutual support and active participation. Our objective is to arouse the students’ curiosity, raise important questions, and encourage students to do their own research, giving a broad perspective of approaches and points of view.
