I am proud to have been the founding head teacher of LCIS in 2008. It is an honour to be part of such a wonderful school - its students, its families, its staff and collaborators. The founding and expansion of LCIS from a school of 42 students to a well-established, highly reputed school in Vaud has been and continues to be a labour of love.

HISTORY AND HERITAGE

LCIS has come a very long way—and in a very short time.

 

Our original school in Mont-sur-Rolle had 42 students and seven staff in 2008. By the end of the first school year, the number of students had doubled, and we’d opened our Secondary section to serve our growing school community from a larger campus in Vich.

 

In 2011, we were immensely proud to join the Nord Anglia family of international premium schools, and in 2014 we moved into our brand-new purpose-built campus in Aubonne. Today we’re firmly established as a school of choice in the area, with a thriving international community over 10 times larger than when we started, and 40 nationalities represented in our unique, international community.
