Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to the internet site of Collège Beau Soleil through which I hope that we can introduce you to what a high quality education at Beau Soleil involves.

Founded in 1910 Beau Soleil is one of the oldest private boarding schools in Switzerland. It provides a full boarding education for students from over 40 different nationalities aged 11-18 years old. Given our spectacular location in the Swiss Alps we aim to provide an education which encourages full participation from our students both inside and outside the classroom. We provide a stimulating academic curriculum in both English and French which is balanced with an extensive outdoor sports, expedition and service programme. Through this combination of activities on the ski slopes, the mountain side and in the class room our students develop important skills including team work, collaboration and resilience.

As a boarding school with a capacity of 250 pupils, we are an international community which relishes its diversity. Life as a boarder is the ideal means through which students learn about each other and develop, through shared experiences, friendships which last a life time.

Owned by the de Meyer family until 2010 the school then passed into the Nord Anglia Education family of premium schools. Through this association and our membership of the Round Square organisation, Beau Soleil is able to retain its small family atmosphere and yet benefit from the aspirations and opportunities available within global networks of schools.

I hope that the material presented here encourages you to pursue your interest in the school through personal contact and a visit to the school to meet me and some of the students. I look forward to welcoming you to Beau Soleil.

Kevin Foyle, Principal
