A message from our Head of Boarding

St. George's International School is located in the residential area of Clarens, overlooking the beautiful Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps, and very close to Montreux and Vevey.

“Our experienced boarding staff live on campus and are available throughout the day and night to create an extended family atmosphere. This warm and nurturing approach enables each student to receive the care, empathy and understanding they need to become responsible and independent citizens living away from home."



“I have been at St. George’s for 5 years as a full boarder, and I can't choose my favourite memory from school as there are too many! Life at St. George’s has taught me to be responsible for all the actions and decisions I make as well as be more open minded person.”
Yana, former Head of School and cohort 2018

“I chose St. George’s as I can benefit from the small class sizes, which provide me with a chance to adapt quicker to the education system and prepare me better for the path to university.”

On the 10th of November, the boarders took a trip to the Basel Autumn Fair. The fair has more than 500 years of history and is the oldest amusement fair in Switzerland. It spans across seven squares in Basel and over 1 million people visit the fair every year. This year our boarders were a part of the 1 million people who visited.

After a 2 hour drive, the boarders reached Basel and were amazed by the picturesque setting of the enormous Ferris wheel, Of course, they took advantage to see the panoramic views of the city and tried out some of the other heart-racing rides on offer.

We planned a very different activity at the weekend. The borders went to the Morges evening race. The run was introduced in 2014 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Young International Chamber of Morges. The first race was a huge success and has continued to be so.

This year, 300 people participated and 19 of our boarders took part in the race. We left the campus at 5 pm and started the race at 7 pm. The atmosphere was excellent and the boarders could not wait to start. All of our boarders received medals for competing. 

Nayef came first with Egor and Paul coming in second. Valenti...

We are just back from an amazing tropical island getaway!  Our destination- Mauritius. 

Mr. and Mrs. François took 11 of us to Mauritius for a week.  After a long flight, we arrived on Saturday evening, had dinner and went to bed early.  We were tired but very excited about the next day!

We had loads of activities planned for the week. From sailing to archery and paddle boarding. We had a great time discovering the island. Some of us took part in a sailing competition with Mr. Francois, we came in 1st place! We were presented with our medals after the race. It was a great feeling!
