Geneva English School
GES provides an outstanding British education, in a calm and modern environment, small enough for every teacher to know every student, so that academic success is achieved by all.
GES Secondary opened in September 2016. We wanted to take the warm and academically successful ethos of the primary and add a more grown up, academically focussed curriculum to our offer. Our school is housed in fabulous, cutting edge facilities about a 30 minute walk from the primary. The calm, studious and friendly environment is unique in the area and allows our students to thrive. Each of our students is issued with an iPad to help them with their studies in school and we use google classroom and g suite to ensure that students remain connected in and out of the classroom.
We follow the British national curriculum preparing the students for both their GCSE exams at 16 and A Level exams at 18. The curriculum is broad and balanced and ensures that the whole child is happy and successful. We also offer a great range of clubs and activities as well as educational visits both locally and internationally. Whilst we are not a bilingual school, languages are an important part of our curriculum and all students are expected to study French to at least GCSE level and also study a second modern foreign language.
We use local sporting facilities such as the local Country Club, UEFA headquarter football pitches and Lake Geneva to ensure that all our students have world-class PE lessons. We pride ourselves on our excellent outdoor education programme with almost all of our students working towards the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award and attending camps, trips and visits across Switzerland. Education at GES Secondary is happening both in and out of the classroom.
