Description

An outstanding school and a welcoming, thriving community with students following the British National Curriculum from ages 3 to 18 with a wide number of GCSE and IGCSE courses between ages 15 and 16 followed by A Levels from age 17 to 18.
We believe that the rigorous and demanding UK curriculum is second to none. It gives students a broad exposure to learning when they are younger and then allows specialisation in areas of interest as they get older.

We may be English in name, but our school community is as diverse as the Geneva area we serve – we are very much an international school with students and families from the local missions, the UN, and NGOs as well as families that work in the corporate sector and those that live locally. At the last count, we had 48 languages spoken at the school. All of our lessons are taught in English and we offer a bilingual Pre-School. We ensure that our students are taught French throughout their time with us and are supported in gaining formal qualifications in languages they may speak at home. Our A Level pathway includes the requirement for students to reach a high level of French or German so that they can study in Switzerland, France or Germany as well as the UK, US and other countries.

We are deliberately a small school, focused on getting to know our students and their families to ensure that students are challenged and supported through their childhood and teenage years. We understand that young people are under more and more pressure and recognise that adolescent mental health is an issue in society as a whole. At GES we ensure that students are not over-tested and that they get to experience the world around them, are exposed to theatre and music, and excel in individual and team sports. We offer a large variety of clubs and after-school activities to develop our students, make sure that they know what is right and wrong as well as understand and celebrate different perspectives and diversity as a whole.Rte de Malagny 36, 1294 Genthod, Швейцария

Extra-Curricular

We offer over 80 different extra curricular clubs and after-school activities across the entire school, including Outdoor clubs and the very popular Duke of Edinburgh International Award programme. Ski lessons, for example, are offered from Year 1 onwards. The activities help equip students with a range of important skills and attributes such as commitment, creativity and craftsmanship. Most of them are run by our enthusiastic staff members at no extra cost, while there are a few paid activities taught by external specialist teachers. Individual music lessons are catered for by a team of visiting music teachers. Wednesday afternoons at Primary school are dedicated to various classes of our Languages and Sports Academies.
