Choosing a location for your child’s boarding school experience can be challenging when there are many options available. Understanding the benefits of each geographical location can help you make an informed decision that will benefit your child during their school years, as well as give them valuable experiences that they will carry with them for years to come.
At ENSR, we are committed to a teaching approach adapted to the individual needs of your student. Our curriculum prepares students for the Swiss Maturity Diploma and the International Baccalaureate Programme.

1. A Beautiful and Accessible Location
Academics aside, you will want to make sure that your child is comfortable, happy, and at peace with the location of their boarding school. Whether you are a local or international family, you can ensure your child thrives at ENSR, located in a picturesque setting overlooking the lake Léman.
Surrounded by the beauty and tranquillity of Switzerland, students experience a truly international environment that is also highly accessible from many different European countries, making travel to and from our school simple and convenient.
2. Consistent High-Level Education
ENSR’s approach to education is highly personalised. We are committed to the global development of each student, helping them to become responsible, respectful individuals in a multicultural world.
At the Primary, Middle School, and High School programme levels, students are accompanied in their preparation for the Cambridge English exams and qualifications. And at the High School programme level, students prepare for the Swiss Maturity Diploma in French, or the International Baccalaureate Diploma in French, English, or Bilingual EN-FR. All the while, the small size of the classes allows for very personalised attention from our caring and qualified ENSR teachers.
3. Swiss Boarding Schools Prioritise Safety
Safety on campus at Swiss boarding schools starts with the level of community. At ENSR, we foster a family-like environment where your child will feel supported, cared for, and safe. This helps them thrive academically and socially as they complete their studies.
Additionally, in our boarding space that’s mentored by committed, full-time staff, your child will feel comfortable and secure every step of the way. To ease any parents’ worries, ENSR maintains regular communication with parents on how their child is doing.
4. Engaging Academic and Non-Academic Activities
Attending our bilingual school in Lausanne gives your child all of the benefits of Switzerland right at their fingertips. From carefully curated activities on campus – such as pottery, circus workshops, self-defence, choir, and more – to exciting off-campus camps including skiing and windsurfing, students take away many unique and engaging experiences from their time at ENSR.
We offer a wide variety of extracurricular sporting disciplines, which will allow your child to discover new interests and advance their skills along with their peers. On Wednesday afternoons, Saturdays and even during school holidays, we organise camps, courses, and incentives for our students to try to give them as many different sports experiences as possible. Whether your child wants to master their golf swing or participate in horseback riding, they will be thrilled with the opportunities that await at ENSR.
