Boarding & Houses
Each house has its own distinctive personality – but whichever house is yours, you will quickly become part of a warm and friendly family.
The House system is a hallmark of a British-style education. At Aiglon there are nine Houses in total: four for girls and five for boys (all Houses are single-sex), with seven in the Senior School and two in the Junior School. Most houses are home to around 50 students (up to 40 in the Junior School) and will have a particular personality – often influenced by its Houseparent, and bolstered by the House’s own distinctive traditions and identity.
Within each House, students occupy a study bedroom shared with no more than three others (the oldest students are in single or double rooms), and there are common rooms, a dining room, and other communal spaces, such as a kitchen and a games room. Houseparents live on-site; assisting them are Deputy Houseparents and the tutors who are assigned to each student. Students also play a strong role in looking out for their peers, and each House’s captains and prefects take a lead role in daily house life.
