Institut International de Lancy

IIL offers challenging and inspiring programmes with a strong emphasis on languages aiming for a bilingual outcome for all pupils, whether they are enrolled in the English, French or Bilingual section.

In the English section students follow the National Curriculum for England, sit IGCSE examinations, and prepare for the IB Diploma with multilingual exam options. Children from the age of four are taught French as a foreign language. Students in the French section follow the Education Nationale curriculum which leads to the Brevet des Collèges and French Baccalaureate diplomas.

Children from the age of three learn English. An IB World School, IIL is certified to teach the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. The school is a Cambridge University examination centre and is a member of the GESBF (Groupement des Ecoles Suisses qui préparent au Baccalauréat Français). The French Baccalaureate programme is taught under the aegis of the Académie de Grenoble. The school prepares students for Cambridge, Trinity and IELTS examinations, as well as for a number of certified examinations in other languages.

In 2011, IIL became the first One to One iPad School in Switzerland. By incorporating digital tablets into its daily schedule, it created an accessible, individualised learning environment and a platform for clear information sharing between teachers, parents and students. 

After-school supervision, as well as a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, are available for all age groups. IIL operates a regular school bus service.

Students of all ages benefit from modern facilities including fully equipped sports halls. Sports play an important part in the weekly timetable. Optional sports activities are also provided, and sports teachers train students for local, regional, national and international competitions.
