Learning at Aiglon
At Aiglon we seek to break down the traditional conceptions of what it means to be at school. Our classrooms transcend campus buildings to include the mountains as well as the sports pitch.
When we talk about learning, we talk about all of what we do. This creates high expectations but also boundless opportunities to find your niche, to try new things and to excel. We hope this breadth of opportunity describes the journey of each Aiglonian who passes through our doors.
As Aiglonians move through the school's programme, it's integral to their development to experience increasing emphasis on how they engage with the school's holistic tenets and the responsibilities that we hold in high regard. As such, in order to achieve the Aiglon diploma, students must complete and participate in all aspects of our programme, not just classroom learning.
The Aiglon curriculum is designed to ensure that every aspect of a student's intellectual development is supported. Through our three cohorts, our students are expected to explore a diverse range of subjects. This broad, demanding curriculum is the bedrock for success.
Within Aiglon's Creative Arts Faculty, self-expression and creativity are not only encouraged, it's how we approach our learning. Across the subjects music, visual arts and drama theatre arts, we enrich the experience of studying.
Multi-tiered and globally unique, the Aiglon Expeditions Programme ensures all Aiglonians develop a sense of independence and appreciation for challenge. Through a series of opportunities for progressive growth from the junior school through to graduation, everyone spends time in our mountains.
While students at most schools may go home after lessons, as one of the benefits of boarding school, Aiglon's students can usually be found taking part in our extensive activities or weekend programme. These comprise expeditions, sports and academic, social and cultural trips.
Across the year all students are engaged in formal PE lessons and a physical health and wellbeing curriculum. We take full advantage of our location and skiing forms the basis of our winter PE programme. Students also make use of our sports centre, fitness suite as well as the local athletics track, pitches, tennis centre, indoor swimming and ice rink.
