St. George’s International School in Switzerland was founded in 1927 by two young graduates of Oxford University, Lorna Southwell and Osyth Potts. In their undergraduate days at St. Hugh’s College, after the horrors of the First World War, they conceived the idea of founding a school in which children of all nationalities could share their learning and the difficulties of growing up.

Southwell and Potts hoped that the students with this experience behind them would as adults understand others better and thus contribute to the promotion of peace in the world. The school is known, however, for its devoted faculty and staff, who take their responsibilities very seriously. Students benefit from the rigour demanded.

Who we are

St. George’s School in Switzerland is a day and boarding school of approximately 500 students providing a complete educational programme in English with an increasingly French bilingual approach for children aged 3 to 19.

Founded as a British school, we uphold long established values and maintain high moral standards for students of all nationalities in the French-speaking region of Switzerland. We are accredited to a number of world renowned educational bodies.

We uphold traditional values and maintain high moral standards for students of all nationalities in a safe and spectacular French-speaking region of Switzerland.

CLUBS & ACTIVITIES

At St. George’s International School, we focus on all facets of the students’ development. Thus, an emphasis on sport accompanies our cultural programmes in Music, Art, and Drama. These vary from year to year, depending on the staff and students’ interests.

Skiing is an integral part of St. George’s International School school life during the Winter Term. Students ski once a week at Les Mosses and have the opportunity to ski further afield at weekends. There is a ski trip each year (the duration and location of the trip varies dependent on Year Group).
