During the winter, adults can choose from skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and other wintersports activities including ski touring.
During the school holiday times, children are offered a variety of courses including those specifically targeted at GCSE and A-Level exams.
Co-owner of Alpine French School, Helen Watts, said: “We have been operating through the ‘Covid’ period mostly with clients who have been travelling within the EU and clients in the local area. Our Covid protocol has protected our staff and students and has allowed us to continue offering French courses, online courses, plus French language and adventure camps with very positive reviews from clients. Now we are looking forward to once again welcoming students and guests from further afield and are ready to help anyone that wishes to stay for an extended period”’
