The Surval Family

We are a community of up to 60 girls aged 12-19, from all over the world. The School languages are English and French.

Our small, international, mixed age community benefits our younger girls with older sister role models and offers our older girls the chance to lead activities, initiate change, and make a real difference to the community.

We are inclusive and nurturing in our approach. All of our girls are full boarders – Surval is everyone’s home from home and we all look after each other.

Our short stay programmes guarantee a healthy cohort of new starters in all year groups each year, enriching our community with variety and vitality. There is never a dull moment at Surval Montreux!
