Founded in 1947, La Garenne International School is a leading boarding primary school located in the Swiss Alps. Owned and managed for two generations by the Méan family, our school is set in the charming French-speaking ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon providing a secure environment for our students. Our philosophy is based on the traditional values of responsibility, kindness and security, which are key elements for a successful and balanced life. In addition to our regular school year programme, each summer we welcome 90 young learners aged 5 to 13 years from more than 25 countries. They enjoy our renowned authentic Swiss Style Summer Camp, with French or English language courses each morning , taught in small groups from beginner to advanced levels, followed by fun cultural activities and themed evenings - all in a warm, reassuring family ambience. Five sessions take place in July, during which campers experience a varied programme of learning, play, discovery and sharing. Our ‘adult to student’ ratio is 1:2; these adults are teachers and monitors who are employed all year round to ensure camp is safe and memorable
