  • Founded in 1947, La Garenne International School is a leading primary and middle boarding school located in the Swiss Alps. Owned and managed for two generations by the Méan family, our school is set in the charming French-speaking ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon providing a secure environment for our students.
    Our philosophy is based on the traditional values of responsibility, kindness and security, which are key elements for a successful and balanced life.
    In addition to our regular school year and summer programmes, each winter we welcome young international learners aged 8 to 14 years to our renowned authentic Swiss Style Winter Camp. French or English language courses are taught each morning in small groups from beginner to advanced levels, followed by fun cultural activities and themed evenings – all in a warm, reassuring family ambience.
    A choice of sessions take place in January and February, during which campers experience a varied programme of learning, play, discovery and sharing. Our ‘adult to student’ ratio is 1:2; these adults are teachers and monitors who are employed all year round by La Garenne, to ensure camp is safe and memorable.

  • This February 2018, in addition to eight hours of classroom based English instruction, our language teachers and assistants will join classes on the slopes and deliver language learning in the context where it is most relevant. This will provide an experiential immersion experience that will never be forgotten. This experience is perfect for any student wishing to improve English in a fun and engaging way. This is also an opportunity for adventure, for developing the skills and independence for independent living, and potentially an excellent stepping stone into a world-class international education at St. Gilgen International School.
