Life at Brillantmont International School

Brillantmont International School CampusWhether a boarder or a day student, everyone is part of the Brillantmont International School family. Boarding students live in a homely environment supervised by a house mistress and master who live on the campus throughout the year. We closely monitor the wellbeing of our boarders in a family atmosphere in which all are free to express themselves, developing self-confidence and the esteem of others. At all ages, courtesy, respect for others and punctuality remain the keywords of Brillantmont, giving us a reputation as one of the best international boarding schools in Switzerland.

We have qualified, experienced teachers that are multicultural, have excellent pastoral care and work hard to ensure every student is settled when they come to study in Switzerland with us.

Our five-house system provides numerous leadership opportunities to all students, and inter-house sporting events and quizzes help instil a sense of belonging. Everyone knows each other and quickly feels a sense of community, and we see each student as an individual, with unique strengths and talents.
