At Beau Soleil it is not what you hear, not what you see, but what you do that counts. Inside the classroom and outside it.

And when you are focused on doing, things can go wrong. Sometimes you fail. But here, we make sure that there is room to make mistakes and space to put them right.

The consequence is a self-confidence based on achievement, sometimes in unconventional circumstances. And this, more than anything, allows each pupil to go out into the world with wind in their sails and hope in their hearts.

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 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 in team work, collaboration and resilience.

As a boarding school with a capacity of 240 pupils, we form 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 schools. Through this association, Beau Soleil is able to retain its small family atmosphere and yet benefit from the aspirations and opportunities available within a global network of schools.
