La Grande Boissière

Welcome to La Grande Boissière!

Conrad Hughes, Campus Principal

The oldest and largest of the three campuses of the International School of Geneva, La Grande Boissière, is centrally located in Geneva in pleasant wooded grounds and is easily accessible via the efficient public transport system. The property blends a charming mix of old and new buildings, including a small 18th century château and a new, ultra-modern Arts centre. 
Our three schools: Primary (Pre-Reception - Year 4), Middle (Year 5 - Year 8) and Secondary 
(Year 9 - Year 13) benefit from well-equipped libraries, media centres, extensive student ICT facilities, assembly halls and recreational areas tailored to the needs of each age group. Top quality sports facilities allow us to offer an excellent Physical Education programme as well as a wide variety of recreational and competitive sports. Our recently opened Arts Centre includes music studios, exhibition space, a 200-seat theatre, drama studios and a 400-seat auditorium, providing exceptional facilities for the creative and visual arts.
Emblematic of our campus, the Greek Theatre has symbolised the spirit of the International School of Geneva for over half a century: an arena of openness, dialogue and inclusion. Inspired by the Greek Theatre of Epidaurus, it was constructed in 1955 by staff, students and alumni.
