Electives and extracurricular activities

Our electives allow students to pursue their interests and passions without the pressure of a formal examination. Our practice-orientated project and lab days are fixed features in our programme. In addition, our student council and school magazine are spaces where our students have a voice. The student council can create student-driven initiatives, promote charitable work or make suggestions for the improvement of our school. We round off our extracurriculars with regular school field trips, culture days, cinema evenings and end-of-year parties which are co-organised by the students.

German Booster

For students wishing to apply to Swiss universities or simply to integrate into the community more easily we offer a Swiss university track for an additional school fee.

The German Booster track means students will receive 5 German lessons a week: 3 lessons at A1 beginner level, which will progress to A2 level, and 2 lessons that follow the IGCSE syllabus.

Students supplementing their IGCSE and A Levels with Common European Framework A1–C1 German courses, will have the opportunity to take German TELC examinations. TELC examinations are officially recognized by Swiss universities and schools.

«This is a great school and we have been so pleased on how well prepared our children have become for university whether in Europe or in the United States.»
