Le Cerf (Senior Girls)
A former hotel, transformed into a cosy space filled with energy and laughter. Le Cerf is our home, and a hub of kindness and curiosity.
Welcome to Le Cerf.
If there is one place in all the world that you are guaranteed to be embraced with genuine kindness, it is in our home. We celebrate our diversity and are passionate about seeking out challenges to create change in ourselves and in our world. Our house values help us every day to guard a reputation for academic excellence, commitment to service, kindness —and laughter.
Every time you walk through our door, you will be embraced by our loving yet ambitious atmosphere. While our house has recently been renovated into a modern environment, it remains a cosy, fun, and safe space filled with energy and creativity. Just as Aiglon itself provides you with an inspirational vista at every turn, Le Cerf offers you a house that will shape you into the global citizen you deserve to be. Le Cerf has always been nurtured by houseparents whose personal values are driven by this ambitious yet compassionate spirit.
Each year we set out on our path anew, embracing the little details with the knowledge that they support the life-changing ones, striving for service rather than charity, and more than anything taking time to discover the joy in every moment – even on the tough days. Especially on the tough days.
You may join Le Cerf as an intelligent, driven person, but we will help you to emerge from Aiglon as so much more than you could have imagined. Embraced by kindness, love, and laughter, spurred by an insatiable curiosity. You may be proud to call yourself an Aiglonian, but we will always do everything possible to make sure you love calling Le Cerf home.
Le Cerf House —where we laugh. A lot.
Le Cerf House Team
Mr Rowntree and his family head the Le Cerf team after five years in Aiglon's junior girls house, La Casa. This offers the Rowntrees a lovely perspective on what it means to grow up at Aiglon. In fact, he already knows many of the girls when they were part of the Junior School.
The Rowntrees, alongside their three girls, bring an energetic and inspiring family environment to their leadership role in the house. With a combined teaching background in Religious Studies, Theory of Knowledge and English as an Additional Language, they enjoy the opportunity to inspire young people.
