St. George's International School is a co-educational premium day and boarding school for children aged 1 to 18 years old, with a student body comprised of over 60 nationalities.
Our school is a member of Inspired Education group, the leading global premium group of schools that offer excellence in education to over 75,000 students worldwide. From exchange programmes to exclusive camps, to leadership conferences and shared learning experiences, Inspired offers a range of enriching global opportunities which give students a chance to travel, meet peers from other countries and become a part of a vibrant international community.
Since its founding in 1927 by two young graduates of Oxford University, our school has grown to become a well-recognised international school that provides its students with individual attention, career advice and structured pastoral care. Junior and Middle School pupils choose between an English-only or bilingual route through the Cambridge International Curriculum up to and including Year 9. In Senior School, pupils in Years 10 &11 choose between IGCSEs and the Pre Diploma qualification, and in Years 12 & 13 between the IB Diploma and the General Diploma.
Extensive English language acquisition tuition is available along with additional languages such as Spanish, German, Russian and Chinese that can also be learnt and practised daily. Through engaging in this multilingual and multicultural environment, we ensure that our students develop an understanding of a variety of different beliefs, religions, and lifestyles.
A great deal of focus is also put on sport and performing arts at St. George's. With access to outstanding sports facilities, pupils have extensive opportunities in individual and team sports throughout the seasons. Situated on the banks of Lake Geneva, with magnificent views of the Alps, the school occupies 12 acres of beautiful landscape and gardens. This setting promotes intellectual calm and a deep connection to the outdoors, with incomparable opportunities for hiking, skiing, water sports and more.
From a very young age students are encouraged to grow a mind of their own and explore their creativity through a range of performing and expressive arts in theatre, art, design, and music. Collaborations with NGOs are also very frequent and allow students to develop a social conscience.
The school motto "Levavi Oculos" ensures that St. George's International School is dedicated to lifting its students' eyes to embrace the exciting challenges and opportunities that await them.
