What a week! For Reading Week's 10th anniversary, we invited an award-winning Canadian spoken word poet Jamaal Jackson Rogers and an award-winning film and television director Randy Kelly to our school. Over the course of five days, all of our students were given the opportunity to attend ‘3,2,1 Speak!’ workshops during which they learned some poetic devices and were inspired to write and craft their poems.Read More

Students research a country, take on roles as diplomats, investigate international issues, debate, deliberate, consult, and then develop solutions to world problems.Read More
One advantage of Brillantmont’s location in Switzerland is that we can easily organise trips to different parts of Europe which are very close by. Every autumn half term holiday we organise a week-long trip and this year our students went to the French Riviera.Read More

Boarding school life is about so much more than just the learning. It’s about belonging to a community, sharing experiences, growing and developing alongside others.
Living with others of the same age creates a unique bond; you share triumphs and joys and you’ve also got people to support you when the going gets tough. The friendships you make during your time at Brillantmont will shape and impact your life.
So much has already happened at Brillantmont since school started back in September. Our new students have settled in well and already feel very much at home in our warm, friendly community and we are proud of how our returning students have made them feel welcome. As Mr Mc Clean, Assistant Academic Head enthuses, “It has been a terrific start to the new academic year. The students are positive, engaged and working hard but more importantly the sense of enjoyment is tangible.”Read More
