The G7 discussions are over, but the problems and questions discussed by world leaders about the kind of world future generations will inherit remain.

When it comes to British A Levels in the Lake Geneva area, trust the experts!

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Brillantmont is one of the only schools in the Lake Geneva area which teaches British A Levels. We are not the new kids on the block! Established in Switzerland in 1882, we have decades of experience in preparing our students for A Level success. Out of all the programmes offered for the 16-18 year old age group, we believe that A Levels is simply the best in terms of how it prepares students for the rigours of university study.

 

"Students who have taken Cambridge international A Levels are very well prepared for our curriculum and we find that they have a lot of confidence, but also that they have a good, deep subject knowledge."
- Stuart Schmill, Dean of Admissions, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

 

Enjoy this film in which Mr McClean, our Head of Academics, explains why we believe that A Levels are a fantastic key to opening many doors.

Great Ski Week and Winter Course experience for Brillantmont students

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

Skiing is a big part of Brillantmont life. Our amazing location means we can be in the ski resorts very quickly, enabling our students to hit the slopes every weekend.

Despite the pandemic, we've been really lucky as the government allowed ski resorts in Switzerland to stay open as long as they strictly applied measures to protect public health. This has been literally a breath of fresh air for our students. Being able to get out into nature, having fun with friends and breathing the clean, fresh mountain air has given them the invigorating break that they need. They've been able to disconnect from the learning environment and try something different.

Developing critical thinking skills in the French classroom

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

We all love pictures and when those pictures tell a story, what is there to not love? From  Disney comic strips,  to the philosphical ponderings of Snoopy in the Peanuts cartoon, to the questions posed in newspaper strips - they all get us thinking about the message behind the picture.

Brillantmont says yes to YES!

| 0 comments| by Sarah Frei Sarah Frei

 One of our core values at Brillantmont is to nurture collaboration and leadership skills through challenge. A great way to do this is through YES - The Young Enterprise Switzerland Club (YES Club). This after school club at Brillantmont is dedicated to bridging the gap between theory and practice in relation to investing and entrepreneurship. Our intrepid group of scholars meet every Wednesday in a classroom overlooking beautiful Lac Leman (Lake Geneva). Our team competes in two separate stock market game challenges and learn the fundamentals of investing, starting up and operating their own business. The YES Club’s talented members reflect our cultural diversity and includes students from Switzerland, Mexico, Spain, India, Luxembourg and Iran and are led by Mr Joe Brogan, our Economics /History teacher.
