Kindergarten
In our bilingual kindergarten, children develop their reading, writing and numeracy
skills as well as their decision-making, learning and social competencies. Native
speaker teachers create individual work and activities based on the child’s strengths
and talents. The child learns the new language in guided learning sequences and in
supervised playing phases.

We offer:
• Qualified and experienced kindergarten teachers
• Small groups
• Individual advancement of each child
• Varied experience in the field of basic mathematical skills
• Diverse experience in letters and writing
• Preparation in all learning areas for entry to primary level
• Daily activities like dance, singing, music, sport, art and swimming
• Forest days
• Extensive after-school programme
• School bus

Curriculum
Teaching in our bilingual kindergarten is based on the curriculum of the respective
Canton as well as on the UK Cambridge International Curriculum. Our individual work

and activities plans allow us to focus on the talents and skills of each child.

Primary school
Our teaching concept is based on immersion and advancement of talents and gifted
children. A German-speaking teacher in a German-speaking learning environment
during one half of the week alternates with an English-speaking teacher in an
English-speaking learning environment during the other half of the week. The children
study in small classes according to an individual work plan, which focuses on their
individual talents and strengths.

We offer:
• Qualified, committed and experienced native speaking teachers
• Native speaking assistant teachers
• Team teaching
• Individual advancement
• Intensive support and supervision
• School bus
• Lunchtime supervision
• Extensive after-school programme
• Homework supervision

Curriculum
Our curriculum is based on the UK Cambridge International Curriculum as well as the
official curriculum of the Canton (“Lehrplan21”, obligatory period of schooling).
Our teachers differentiate all learning targets, also in the form of weekly work plans.
These work plans take into account the level as well as the pace of learning of each
child.

Secondary school
Our bilingual pre-college secondary school prepares students for admission to our
English-language college or other further education schools. Knowledge, abilities and
skills are consolidated and extended in lessons structured according to specific
subjects. Abstract thinking and learning becomes more significant due to the general

and cognitive development of the students, while they continue to learn through
concrete actions and situations.
Interdisciplinary competences are strengthened and trained consistently. Attitudes
and approaches are reflected upon, helping students to learn independently and
responsibly.

We offer:
• Motivated, experienced native speaking teachers
• Subjects taught in German and English
• Preparation for college
• Acquisition of a broad general education
• Individualised language instruction in German and English
• Development of an additional foreign language (French)
• Higher linguistic proficiency by lessons in the target language

Curriculum
Our curriculum is based on the official curriculum of the respective Canton and the UK
Cambridge International Curriculum.

College
In our English-language college, students are prepared for the international university
entrance qualification (A levels) in four years. Students who are at the stage just
before gaining the Swiss university entrance qualification (Matura) can complete the
qualification in two years.

We offer:
• A qualification acknowledged in Switzerland and all over the world
• English as the language of instruction
• Supervised homework and study times
• Comprehensive preparation for academic studies
We attach importance to:
• Focus on key subjects
• Promotion of excellence in key subjects
• Advancement of scientific working and writing
• Promotion of competence in methods
• Advancement of the ability to plan, conduct, present
and post-process projects on complicated issues

Curriculum
Our college is based on the British education system (IGCSEs, AS and A levels) and
follows the Cambridge International and Edexcel curricula. Students attend our school
for 4 years in order to gain the university entrance qualification. Exams take place
after the first 2 years, as well as after the 3rd and 4th year.
