At Aiglon, every student's unique talent is nurtured. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves and learn in new ways they never have before.
At Aiglon, students live life to its fullest. In addition to their academic studies, all students have the opportunity to extend their interest in music, art and drama, whether they are beginners or want to perform to a professional standard. Aiglon also makes available to students a variety of other opportunities to improve learning and give everyone the chance to succeed.
Head of Department, Ms Jane Kan
The Learning Support Department provides specialist teaching to support students with a variety of learning difficulties, through individualised intervention and personalised target setting. Our team of qualified teachers work one-to-one with students and alongside staff to enable these students to maximise their potential and succeed.
English as an Additional Language
Our expert and targeted EAL programme enables students from all over the world to access our curriculum. You will benefit from immersion in an English-speaking community, and ongoing support. Support is provided one-on-one and in the classroom. In the Junior School, specialist EAL classes are available during the first three years. After that, all lessons are taught in English, apart from language classes.
Centre for Enquiry
Our Creative Learning & Library Space
The Centre for Enquiry provides unique, modern spaces for individual study, group work or small class teaching for creative thinking and collaboration. Specially designed "Pods" create spaces where students can come to focus and work on projects without the typical distractions of campus life. Also, unique classroom spaces have interactive screens, modular seating and specially designed equipment to facilitate creative learning like robotic lessons! We also have an extensive collection of books, digital resources and research databases. Our online resources are a valuable source of up-to-date information to IB students. Three dedicated librarians support students with research projects and academic writing - providing tutorials on research methods and information literacy skills.
CAS & Activities
Creativity, Action, Service
These three components are essential to a fully-rounded education. CAS is a required component of the IB Programme for Years 12 & 13, but at Aiglon we have chosen to embed the values of CAS across all age groups through our Activities Programme. Many of our students find activities so enjoyable they do not think of them as part of their learning at all. And with more than 100 options, there really will be something to catch every student’s interest.
Cultural Long Expeditions, Department Trips
Students will make numerous cultural trips during the course of a school year, either centred around a particular subject or department, or simply for cultural enrichment. In October, the entire school leaves the mountain and heads for destinations across Europe. Switzerland also houses many world-class art collections, and recent visits have included art museums in Basel, Bern and Geneva. Creative art students also seek inspiration among the Swiss mountains, and trips to the beautiful valley of Solalex enables art students to think and create outdoors.
