Boarding at Surval

Full and Weekly Boarding Available

Home away from Home

Surval is a much-loved home for up to 60 girls.  The girls are cared for by our exceptional team of residential staff who are here to support and guide the girls through their Surval experience and support any needs they may have.  Our School Nurse is on-site daily to look after medical needs and will accompany girls to doctor or other medical appointments.  

Surval’s evening and weekend programme ensures girls make the most of their free time and their fabulous Swiss location with trips around Switzerland and in-house activities. In the House, girls are supported to manage their time so that they achieve a balance between their studies, leisure and relaxation.  In the evening support is readily available with the organisation of homework if needed.  



Originally built as a hotel, our beautiful house is full of character and provides a homely environment for the girls.  Bedrooms are shared by 2 or 3 girls with a few single rooms available. Most rooms have balconies with a wonderful view of the lake or the mountains and all have personal safes and a fridge to store any drinks and snacks. Wi-Fi is available in all rooms.

Bedrooms are a shared space where our girls can relax, talk with friends, contact family. Each girl has a bed, desk, shelves, wardrobe and is encouraged to personalise her own area, making her bedroom a home-from-home with photos, posters and teddies!


Mentoring and Counselling

Each Surval student is known and treated as an individual and known well to all staff members.  Each student is allocated a mentor from within the boarding and teaching teams.  Mentors are there to provide a bridge across all aspects of a girl’s experience at Surval and ensure that she feels heard and supported academically, socially and emotionally.  Mentors support and guide students and act as a listening ear.  They also help students with target setting to help them make the most of their Surval education.

Professional counselling service is also available for students who would like an independent listening ear.
