Excellence in the Swiss Alps
Verbier International School delivers a world-class educational experience with Swiss high standards, where education goes beyond the curriculum and provides your children with a learning experience that will last a lifetime. We offer an education from ages 3 to 16, for both international and local students culminating in the opportunity to sit the Cambridge IGCSEs at the end of Year 11.
All our primary pupils enjoy the wonders of forest school and also our amazing outdoor activity provision. Weekly forest school sessions impart our children with improved self-confidence, independence and social skills, as well as helping them gain a fascinating insight into science and the natural world.
A Safe and Caring School from
Foundation Stage 1 to Year 11
Due to our small pupil-to-teacher ratios, we ensure optimal supervision and guidance, whether it be on the playground, in the classroom or on the mountain. We want to make sure to have an “all-caring” school culture. At VIS we want to create a school environment that reaches out with heart and mind to all its members. Students are motivated to do well and achieve their full potential and be sure to feel safe and supported.
Across the Primary School our qualified and experienced teachers work with parents to make the transition from home to school as smooth as possible, taking into account the specific needs of each child. We have a flexible approach, taking into consideration every family's requirements.
As they move into Key Stage 2 we encourage children to think imaginatively across a variety of topics. We actively encourage independent thinking and adaptability alongside academic focus and an ever evolving depth of learning. High standards of teaching across the curriculum are maintained to challenge each individual child.
A Unique Experience
To Become Bilingual
While students follow the English National Curriculum leading to the Cambridge IGCSE exams; we ensure that our students have a solid foundation in all subjects with, in parallel, a special focus on the French courses. Students are divided into small, homogeneous groups and the program is adapted to each student's level. Our extra-curricular activities can be given in French, and this gives them the practice they need to hear and speak the language.
In The Year
Stepping outside the classroom brings the world to life, and here at VIS we know that it is important to remember that a true all-round education can never be confined to the four walls of the classroom. We endeavour to bring the work that the children do in the classroom to life with an extensive range of exciting educational trips and visits across the year.
& Summer Sports Opportunities
The Val de Bagnes is an extraordinary region in which we are fortunate to be able to offer a wide range of activities such as tennis, golf, dance, football, swimming, climbing, biking, hiking, jogging, gymnastics and rugby. Our unique ski program allows everyone to progress and develop in complete safety. Children have the opportunity to be part of our Competition or Freeride team.
