Our Aims & Ethos:


- Students Become Community Leaders
Our students will be the leaders of the school community, helping to make decisions about their facilities and enrichment courses: they will have leading parts in the plays we produce, in musical activities, in sport, and in the charities we support both locally and further afield.

- Focus on Independednt Development
Every door is open to them as they develop into independent young women who have grown up in an international community and do not just tolerate, but truly understand, the value and importance of the beliefs, customs and traditions of others. 

- Intelligence, Understanding & Social Responsibility
They will be girls who will bring their intelligence, their understanding, and their sense of social responsibility to the service of the communities in which they will live.

International Boarding School Programs for Girls Ages 13-18:

Classes are taught through English, with additional language courses available throughout each curriculum

- Foundation Year
- IGCSEs
- American High School Program

- Summer and Winter Camps

Location & Facilities:
Surval Montreux is set in a stunning hillside location just above the town of Montreux-the centre of the Montreux Riviera.  The school minibus drives girls down to Montreux at regular intervals during the late afternoon and early evening so they can enjoy walking, cycling or roller skating along the lakeside promenade: or simply enjoy a coffee or hot chocolate with their friends in one of the many cafés. 

High quality shops are always an attraction, and in winter the Christmas Market provides an ideal shopping opportunity for unusual presents, as well as purpose- built cafés and restaurants, many devoted to the traditional fondue.

Institut Le Rosey, Rolle
Courses / Programs
Located in Rolle, beside Lake Geneva and between Lausanne and Nyon in the Canton of Vaud in western Switzerland, Institut Le Rosey is a prestigious, international, boarding school and the oldest private boarding school in Switzerland. We cater for boys and girls from class 9 (US 3rd grade, UK year 4) to class 1 (US 12th grade, UK Year 12). Le Rosey’s 380 students are all boarders and share life on two campuses, the first in Rolle and the second in Gstaad (winter months).

All students must sit either the International Baccalaureate (IB) or French baccalauréat after following an academic programme with the chance to take each subject in either English or French, as well as studying one, two or even three further foreign languages. They live in an international community to which each Rosean contributes through his or her own language, culture and religion; making the campus a true “global village” to share with friends. Boarding life is a linguistic and cultural meeting point. Foreigners become friends, and using foreign languages becomes second nature. Roseans have sports and artistic activities every day, and are encouraged to develop their multiple intelligences and talents.
