IGCSE & International A-Levels
CITY CAMPUS GENERAL ACTIVITIES
There are almost no limits to the sporting activities available in Winterthur: in addition to ice hockey, ice skating, tennis, athletics, football and American football, there is a gym hall for handball and floorball on site. We cooperate with local clubs that strongly encourage young sportspeople and whose athletes are repeatedly represented at world and European championships. We work with the Winterthur Conservatory to support young people with musical ambitions.
At weekends, we organise communal activities in Winterthur and the surrounding area, arrange movie nights and much more. We also benefit from the wide range of cultural activities offered in the greater Zurich area with its diverse museums, theatre performances, sporting events and concerts, and various city festivals.
During the autumn, ski and spring holidays, we offer one-day and multi-day excursions, communal activities, and various sports activities.
MOUNTAIN CAMPUS GENERAL ACTIVITIES
In winter: skiing in one of the largest ski areas in Switzerland (Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis), cross-country skiing, ice hockey, ice skating, snowshoeing. In summer: hiking, climbing, mountain biking: mountain bikes are available. Singing in the traditional choir (once a week at lunchtime). Getting involved in the student association: this makes settling in easier and offers the opportunity to forge lifelong friendships.
