Geneva English School

Families who join GES are immediately made to feel welcome and become part of our warm and friendly community. We are passionate about the importance of a strong partnership between school and home. Parents are encouraged to support their children’s education and to contribute their ideas and expertise to enrich the life of the school.

Our teaching is expert, active, engaging and flexible, responding to the needs of individuals. We break down the barriers between different areas of the curriculum, helping pupils to connect their learning across subjects and encouraging them to think critically and creatively. We believe in building a collaborative community of enquiry in which children appreciate the relevance of study and become self-motivated, confident and inquisitive learners.

Every child is important to us. Above all, we want our pupils to be happy and to enjoy their days at school. Our strong pastoral system and our small school environment in which everyone knows everyone provide an environment in which every individual is encouraged, valued and supported.

Please come and visit us and experience the soul, spirit and energy of GES for yourself.

Sports and Extra-Curricular Activities

Sports

We aim to inspire, nurture and extend children’s sporting talent and passion, while showing children how to be physically literate for life. Allowing children to explore sport in an environment which they feel safe, confident and enables them develop a love for sport.

We offer a range of levels of sport, from fun participation to representing the school in external competitions.

We run competitive teams in the following sports:
  • Football
  • Rugby
  • Netball
  • Cross-Country
  • Athletics
  • Skiing

These teams compete in SGIS (Swiss group of international schools), Ligue du Lac and International tours.

Our non-competitive sports activities include:
  • Cricket
  • Rounders
  • Basketball

We also run differentiated inter-house competitions.

For children who wish to further their sporting opportunities and extend performance training, GES have a number of sporting partners which aim to progress the talent further and compete in regional and national competitions.
