Welcome to Clairmont

Clairmont is an exciting house, ready to embrace new opportunities, endeavours and challenges. We encourage all our girls to begin each year with a positive state of mind, to strive for their personal goals and seize all the opportunities on offer.

Our motto, "Our better, is better" is not a boast of superiority. Rather, our house works together to enable every girl to find and pursue her own "best" skills and become even "better" in this way. Indeed, participation and teamwork are prized just as much as coming out on top. There are many diverse talents within the house. Everyone participates, even when it's not their strongest area.

We love our close-knit atmosphere, bolstered by activities such as charity baking events, a Valentine's dinner, winter outings (which always include hot chocolate), a year-end dinner in Montreux and cinema trips!

We hope you can come visit us some day soon, and we're very much looking forward to welcoming you to our house.

From the Students

No matter who you are or where you're from, there's always someone who'll come back and talk and be your friend. And, often, those friendships are made forever.

CLAIRMONT, Class of 2024

House History

It was thanks to Clairmont in 1955 that Aiglon was able to find and purchase a permanent home — the Hotel Beau Site. Renamed Clairmont, it has, at different times, provided boys' boarding, school dining, classrooms and science labs, the staffroom and the library. It welcomed the first girls to Aiglon in 1968 and has remained a senior girls’ boarding house ever since.

You are still greeted with a sense of old and new as you enter Clairmont. An original Art Deco tiled floor ushers you into an expansive common area, basked in sunshine and providing uninterrupted views of our mountain landscape.
