Why La Garenne?



Admissions Overview

La Garenne has been one of the world’s leading boarding schools since its foundation in 1947. Each year we welcome more than 160 students from over 30 nations to our campus in the French-speaking ski resort of Villars-sur-Ollon.


We provide a secure environment and an extraordinary education for boarding and day students from 5 to 18 years old. We provide individual attention to each student, encouraging a passion for learning and ensuring the rounded development of all the young people in our care academically, socially and emotionally.


La Garenne prides itself on its long and rich history as a bilingual place of learning. While the main language of academic subjects is English, we believe that language learning is vitally important and students are encouraged to develop a mastery of the French Language in addition to studying their own language.


While most students choose to spend several years with us, we also offer an Integration Programme. This offers students a unique taste of academic, sporting and boarding life over a shorter period, after which some decide to stay at La Garenne for the full academic year. In summer, we offer residential and day camps with a well-balanced programme of language courses in French or English in the morning followed by sports, cultural and leisure activities in the afternoon and evenings.


Above all, we offer a safe and healthy environment in which every child feels cherished. For more information or for any admissions enquiries please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will be in touch quickly.
