You are almost certainly looking at these pages because your son or daughter attends a school that uses us as their French immersion trip destination. Naturally we believe that the school has chosen the very best provider they could but we know it is our mission to prove that to both your child and you through what we achieve during their stay with us.

We will only provide this proof through the dedicated application of the strictest safety and security standards alongside a passion for making the week your child spends with us as enjoyable, educational and memorable as possible. That is the measure we know we are judged on by all our visitors and their parents and it’s a challenge we love meeting.

We will treat the safety and security of your child with the highest priority. This includes all aspects of the trip from the start of their journey to us through to their safe return.

We will engage and enthuse your child and every visitor to us with a mixture of lessons, activities and excursions that are designed specifically to support the objectives of their trip

If there is any aspect of our service that you cannot clarify with the use of this site then please do ask either your school’s trip leader or if they cannot help then please do get in contact with us using the enquiry system.

We love the energy and life that children bring to our centres and to our lives and look forward to proving to your child and you that here is no safer, educationally rewarding and self affirming school trip specialist to entrust your child to.

Dear MCF,
I would like to thank you all,  (a special mention to Elodie). My son has just returned from MCF, he has had a  fantastic week with you all.  Many thanks for making his stay at  Maison Claire Fontaine such a memorable and unforgettable one.  He  enjoyed every activity enormously-kayaking, circus, sculpting, cooking  the excursions  to name just a few. He's even asked if he could have  escargot next week for tea-so the food was equally delicious.  Its the  longest time he's ever spent away from home, yet he felt very  comfortable at MCF.  You really are a great team and do a wonderful  job!  A big thanks too to Brian the coach driver whom accompanied them on  every activity. 

Mia Barry, parent from Twickenham Prep  

With very best wishes & also a VERY BIG THANK YOU for giving Molly & her year group a FABULOUS trip to France.  Memories & experiences that will remain with them & set them up for life.

Louise, parent from Westbourne House school


Thank you so much for looking after the boys for the past few days.  Daniel returned suitably exhausted but enthusing about everything he had done in France and the wonderful staff at MCF.  Daniel certainly seems to have enjoyed himself and has come home feeling more confident understanding spoken French.  He will have lots of fond memories of you - he's already mentioned the opportunities for GAP year/Uni students so you've had quite an impact - we'll see what time brings . . .  

Best Wishes and thanks again.

Philippa Smith, Parent from Bedford School
