House History

Delaware House Archive - Shot from Hotel Cerf

Delaware’s idyllic setting and purpose-built facilities are a haven for the 53+ senior boys who live here. An open-plan common area blends life in house to the surrounding garden and allows the boys much closer proximity to school life than their predecessors, who lived in a house going by the same name further down the street in lower Chesières.

The house was created when the boys took over the old ‘Hotel Beau Séjour’ in central Chesières due to the arrival of girls to Aiglon in 1968. As the fourth boarding house and in keeping with the tradition of names following the alphabet, the building became known as Delaware. The boys then moved to the current house in 2006 when the school constructed its first-ever, dedicated boarding house.
