About Us

The Hardelot Centre provides gate-to-gate school trips to France at our Kent County Council property on the Opal Coast in Pas de Calais, just a drive across the Channel. We have been successfully arranging school trips for around 20 years.

We concentrate on you! With sole occupancy of the Centre and bespoke programmes of activities all arranged in partnership with you, our priority is to offer you a bespoke trip which will fulfil your needs.

Our belief is that language should be fun. The best asset we have is France and our strong local contacts. We believe that new activities should be challenging to stretch the individual and develop their confidence, teamwork and self-belief.

The Hardelot Centre has an excellent safety record and high levels of staff retention – so for your school trip you can expect to have an experienced team which has been with us for more than just the season.
