As a not-for-profit foundation, GES is financed exclusively by tuition fees and donations. Our tuition fees are recognized as being extremely competitive and inclusive (books, other resources, activities, day trips) compared with other international schools.
1. Registration fee
This non-refundable fee covers the administrative costs of processing your application. The current registration fee, payable on enrolment is 1'500 CHF. GES does not charge an annual administration fee. (*)
2. Capital development fee
The non-refundable, one-off capital development fee, payable on enrolment, is used for the continual improvement and upgrading of the school environment: 4'000 CHF.
3. Tuition deposit
This deposit is held by the school until the pupil’s final term. The deposit is deducted from the invoice for the final term of the pupil’s attendance at the school: 3'000 CHF. When leaving the school, parents have the option to donate the tuition deposit to The GES Development Fund. All donations to GES are exempt of taxes.
(*) Capital development fee for the Nursery is payable in two parts:
- 2’000 CHF while entry into Nursery

Geneva English School uses a catering company (Novae Restauration) to provide school lunches.
It is an optional paid service which is running 5 days a week (from Monday to Friday).
As the school finishes at 12:20 on Wednesdays, hot lunches may be provided for children attending extra-curricular activities or After School Care on Wednesday afternoons.
Alternatively children may bring a packed lunch from home. All children eat in the dining room, where healthy eating, sociable chat and good manners are promoted by the staff.
During the week, varied, attractive and balanced menus are offered to the pupils. All meals typically include fibers (vegetables), carbohydrates (potatoes, pasta, whole wheat bread, rice) and proteins (meat, eggs, fish or tofu) in varying proportions. Meals are nut-free, prepared with a minimal amount of additional salt and with a preference for seasonal products.
