We promote our students’ natural curiosity through our enrichment programme which introduces students to a wide range of different activities and skills.
The VIS community
The VIS community is diverse in terms of skills and interests so that we can provide many different opportunities to extend students. These include chess, woodwork, choir, cooking, drama, cross stitch and arts and crafts.
The Student Council
The Student Council is the key way in which student voice can be heard. Each class has 2 representatives in the Student Council. The Student Representatives for each year group meet once a week and the entire Council meet once a month.
Debating is offered as an ASA and there are more opportunities for students to stretch and challenge themselves in and outside of the classroom.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is open to young people between the ages of 14 and 25. It is aimed at personal challenge, service and responsibility, developed through a range of activities in four mandatory areas: service, skills, physical recreation and adventurous journeys. There are three levels: Bronze (for those 14 years and older), Silver (for those 15 years and older) and Gold (for those 16 years and older). The International Award is offered at VIS: all students over 14 will participate in the Bronze Award and then opt into the Silver or Gold levels later.
How to apply
We develop partnership and trust to prepare prospective families for life in Verbier for both day students and boarders.
