Each house has its own distinctive personality – but whichever house is yours, you will quickly become part of a warm and friendly family.
The boarding school house system is a hallmark of a British-style education. At Aiglon there are ten houses in total: five for girls and five for boys, with eight in the senior school and two in the junior school.
Most houses in the senior school are home to around 50 students, and up to 30 in the junior school. Each house has its own particular personality, 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). There is also a common room, a dining room and other communal spaces, such as a kitchen and a games room. Houseparents live on site, assisted by deputy houseparents and the tutors who are assigned to each student.
Students play an active part in looking out for their peers, and each house’s captains and prefects take a lead role in daily house life.
