The school itself is housed in a former hotel, with all the facilities one expects of Swiss hospitality. Bedrooms are for two or occasionally three girls. All have en suite facilities, almost all have balconies with a small table and chairs for relaxation or study, and all have a fridge. Wifi is available throughout the building unitl 11pm.
The housekeeping staff work tirelessly through 7 days a week to ensure that the cleanliness and presentation of the school matches hotel standards. Girls are expected to make their beds and keep their rooms tidy. They take their laundry bag to the laundry each Sunday, and collect their clean laundry on a Thursday.
The dining room is one of the great attractions of the school. It is set for tables of four, with one long table down the middle of the room, so girls can eat in small groups or join a larger table if they prefer. The housekeeping staff take great pride in the dining room which is always a civilised and pleasant place to eat. Meals, cooked by our team of chefs, are delicious. After a substantial breakfast girls also have a break for coffee, hot chocolate or other drinks and a small snack. Lunch and supper are three course meals, always healthy and enjoyable. Special diets are catered for and these must be communicated in advance
The Library, completely refurbished in January 2013, has comfortable seating with chesterfields and club chairs. Girls can read from the substantial array of new books, or watch films in the evening when study time is over. Various card and board games and puzzles are always available. The large tables in the window and down one side of the room are for supervised study in late afternoon and early evening.
On the ground floor the largest classroom in the school is an art room. So many girls love art and crafts that the provision of an outstanding studio for this is a necessity. The room looks out over the lake and is a much valued source of inspiration.
For sport, we have our own tennis court (built into the mountain on motorway-type concrete pillars!), a dance studio, a fitness room and access to a local gym and sports hall. In addition we have quick access to the indoor Olympic size pool at Clarens and in the summer, swimming and all other water sports on the lake. Much of our sporting activity takes place out of doors in the natural amenities provided in this amazing environment.
