Learning Holidays in France

Summer holidays are an important opportunity for Y5 pupils to prepare for the 11 Plus tests which will be taken shortly after starting back at school. It is also important for families to get away and enjoy quality time together during the summer. This is why we have come up with the perfect solution - a family holiday with 11 Plus morning tuition at Classyonne!


Classyonne is the ideal base for a wonderful summer family holiday in beautiful Burgundy. With excellent family accommodation, facilities and grounds. Set in a typical Burgundian farmhouse with lovely gardens surrounded by wonderful countryside in the heart of France, we offer two double rooms (one with two beds and the other with a double bed), a kitchen and two bathrooms at your disposal. Your hosts, Andrew and Marielle, are of course both DBS cleared teachers with safeguarding training. We sleep in an upstairs self-contained studio with en suite and kitchenette at the other side of our long farmhouse (longère) which allows families to enjoy privacy during their stay. For pictures and descriptions of our learning centre in Burgundy as well as ideas for places to visit and family activities, please see our French in France website at www.frenchinfrance.co.uk and the holidays page on my online tutoring website by clicking here. We also have many books as well as stacks of games and garden activities for families to enjoy at the centre, too:)


An hour of 11 Plus or other Tuition is offered every morning, weather permitting in our lovely gardens. A further hour of supervision is also offered, which includes a 15 minute break and a 45 minute paper to tackle and be used as a basis for the following day's lesson. During this time parents and other siblings are free to take their time to enjoy breakfast al fresco, go out (we have lots of ideas for great local walks and visits) or have a lie in! If you would like to learn French while your child is prepping for the 11 Plus we can arrange that too!


The rest of the day is for your family to enjoy the many places of interest and savour the delights of country life in this wonderful area of France.


The cost of a week's self catering accommodation for a family of up to four at GIte du Marronnier, including 5 hours' 11 plus tuition and five hours'  directed study is £674*. If you wish to stay for 2 weeks the price would be reduced by £75 off the second week for all reservations.
