Our students discover their place in our world – and go on to change it for the better. Inspired by life-changing trips, hands-on service activities, and CV-boosting leadership opportunities, your child will make a real difference in school, our community, and across the globe.

We’re proud to be an international school in the fullest sense. We promote global citizenship through our REACH programme, which nurtures Responsible, Eco-friendly, Active, Creative, and Healthy behaviours.

Students also take part in activities that benefit the school community – and develop a host of transferable skills in the process. Our International Week and Language Diversity Festival celebrate our internationalism, too, bringing our community together and opening our students’ minds to different cultures and languages.

caring that drives action

Our students use their energy and enthusiasm to support the causes that matter to them – both here and across the globe.

This includes projects like our annual Gift Box appeal, which supplies essentials to children in need across Europe, as well as charities such as Emalaikat, which provides clean water, sanitation, and medical support to communities across Tanzania. Closer to home, our students fight hunger and food waste through Partage, a local food bank, and get hands-on to keep Lake Geneva clean.

taking the lead

Embodying our RISE values of Respect, Internationalism, Spirit, and Excellence, your child will work as team, solve complex problems, and communicate effectively as part of our Student Government, High Honour Society, and House leadership groups. Our Eco Committee and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee promote citizenship and social contribution, too.

our collaboration with unicef

Our partnership with UNICEF opens our students’ eyes to pressing global issues – and encourages them to develop their own sense of purpose.

Your child will explore topics ranging from the UN Sustainable Development Goals to climate change, taking part in collaborative projects on our Global Campus platform and through our Model United Nations club. Researching, debating, and proposing solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing our planet, your child will grow in confidence, broaden their horizons, and make powerful lifelong connections.
