Le Régent College, open since September 2015, is a unique brand new British International boarding and day school for children aged 4-18. Shortlisted for the British International School Awards in the New British International School of the Year category, it is already marked by a stamp of excellence.
The school is traditional in its ethos and progressive in its teaching, hence equipped to produce well-rounded, internationally-minded young citizens of the world.
» Unique: the first establishment of this type to benefit from both public (local and federal) and private financial grants. Operating as an autonomous private school while being embedded in the local community, the school enjoys a strong credibility among the local population. As a result, all our students have the reassuring feeling that they belong to the community in which they live. It is worth noting that classical dance classes and a choir are open to the locals – another illustration of the open-minded, all-embracing spirit of the school.
» Traditional: As a school, Le Régent College expects its students to embrace and reflect on its four founding principles: COURTESY, COMPASSION, CREATIVITY AND COURAGE, which guide the way they operate from the boardroom to the classrooms. A Ribbons Award recognizes the commitment that students show to the College’s four core values.
Through this approach to life, Le Régent College’s students are encouraged to become caring and compassionate young people, confident they can create a better world. Through the dynamics of the multi-cultural environment, they are taught to value cultural differences.
Two conventional fields of activities, arts and sports, are key components of the curriculum. Being located in a mountain resort, the school focuses on outdoor sports and the discovering of nature. They also offer many opportunities to identify and nurture special abilities in drama, music and arts, thus building the students’ self-esteem, an important prerequisite for success.
26 years of experience in leading top international schools, backed up with reliable research, have proven that students’ involvement in clubs and societies contributes to their cognitive and psychological development. Le Régent College’s children are urged to join as many students’ organizations as they wish.
» Progressive: Le Régent College aims to provide its future graduates with all the skills and qualifications they will need to enter tomorrow’s fiercely competitive job market. Lucky to have built from scratch the school of their dream, the leadership team can offer modern, purpose built facilities with state-of-the-art technology in an awe-inspiring Alpine surrounding. A modern while convivial setting conducive to a family-like atmosphere ensures the harmonious progress of each and every student.
Convinced that the early years of life are the most important for learning, Le Régent College has recently opened a Reception class which offers an environment that is caring, fun and filled with stimulating challenges.
» British and International: The College is “British” in its syllabus and “International” in the making of its teachers’ and students’ body. The latter are drawn from around the world whilst most teachers, bar those teaching languages and music, are from the United Kingdom (UK).
The UK syllabus is taught to Years 1-11, leading to GCSE and IGSCE, to be followed by the International Baccalaureate (IB) syllabus in the last two years of secondary school. The College is applying for authorization to teach the IB programme in September 2018.
The school has already firmly established itself as a leader in English as a Second Language education preparing its Junior pupils to the Cambridge KET , PET and FCE examinations. With its ability to adapt to the needs of children (and their parents), the school has also developed a programme for Year 10 ESL students.
» Visionary: Le Régent College is launching a scholarship programme through its Foundation, and the first bursaries to be awarded will be granted in 2017 to successful young students who live in Valais. They will be expected to sit a series of demanding papers that will highlight their exceptional talent.
