PB Tutoring Programme

We're thrilled to launch our brand new in-resort tutoring programme which have developed alongside preeminent London tutoring agency, Bonas MacFarlane.

We know that some families with children approaching exam periods can find it hard to justify a pre-exams escape. Because we believe in the importance of holidays, we’re launching our new holiday tutoring programme.

Available at select resorts during Easter and May Half Term, pur PB Tutoring Programme provides families with the opportunity to experience an additional service for their children who are studying for exams: professional tutoring sessions each morning, allowing your kids down time for skiing or other activities and a break from the books in the afternoon.
