surval offers a variety of study programmes, including the american high school program, international igcse and a-level curriculum and a unique pre-university gap programme; as well as our winter term and surval summer camp. the school prides itself on offering a tailored and bespoke curriculum, created to support the particular strengths and aspirations of the individual girl.
formal studies are complemented and supported by a comprehensive sporting and enrichment programme and dynamic weekend activity schedule. we have also introduced a more structured tutorial programme to support girls’ personal, social and health education.
our small class sizes (maximum 10) enhance this approach. we are committed to offering the best learning experience possible to each and every student during her time here. some girls come to surval for one term or one year’s study and we ensure they have an effective transition to and from their home country. others enter with the intention of moving up through the school and graduating from surval.
languages feature strongly at surval. for most girls, english is their second language; lessons are taught in english, complemented by a strong emphasis on french, with all girls following the delf programme. surval is also the only school in switzerland which teaches etiquette, a highlight of all our programmes. we also offer sat, ielts and toefl training, alongside a comprehensive university application and careers advice programme so that our girls are well-equipped for their futures.
