The students are divided between three well-equipped boarding houses (Swiss chalets). Most of the rooms have ensuite bathrooms.

Built on an old mountain pasture, the campus is organised around the main building, an authentic yet modernised, well-equipped Swiss chalet. Designed to accomodate young students, it is comprised of classrooms, a dining room, an office and the accomodation of the directors and the boarders.

Furthermore, the campus boasts two newer chalets reserved for the older girls who board here (with a live-in adult who is responsible for them) and additional classrooms.

Two further buildings enrich the campus; one is devoted to the arts (music and visual arts), the other with information technology. These buildings are situated amongst a tree-filled garden which also contains our sports ground, a double trampoline, table-tennis tables, table football, swings, an adventure playground and play houses.

Built on an old mountain pasture, the campus is organised around the main building, an authentic Swiss chalet known as Chalet La Garenne. Designed for the youngest students, it comprises classrooms, a refectory, offices and accommodation for the boarding students and their house parents.

Chalet Beau Site just next door is home to students aged from 11 to 13. All rooms have spectacular views and students are able to relax in comfortable lounges when they are not studying or doing sport. Chalet Beau Site also houses a dedicated art workshops and a multi-purpose music and exercise space.

Five minutes away is Chalet Le Roc which is a state-of-the-art building which is not just home to our teenage students, but also houses classrooms, a gym, a dance space, a stunning art room, a Community Floor and a large and welcoming refectory and reception area. It is next to the main Villars ski lift, enabling ski-in, ski-out for students in the winter.

One further building completes the campus: our teaching block known as Academia, where students aged from 5 to 13 have their lessons. It contains a library, classrooms, the academic office and a flexible teaching space on the top floor.

Outside, students enjoy spacious relaxation and sports facilities, including basketball courts, trampolines and children’s play equipment.

The school invests constantly in its modernisation and in the improvement of its facilities, whilst preserving its role as a traditional symbol of the Swiss landscape.

House parents reside in the chalets and create a homely atmosphere for the students. They are there to encourage, support, and help the students to be responsible young adults. Special evenings are organised to celebrate birthdays, festivals and Swiss National Day.

The rooms accommodate between two and four children and the children have use of a desk and another cupboard for their personal belongings. The bedrooms are reserved for reading, relaxing and listening to music.

Every child is allocated a locker in the downstairs changing rooms in which they can store their outdoor wear and sports equipment.
