With our rich and varied programme of extra-curricular activities, your child will be able to explore his or her potential, develop and showcase new talents, and enjoy moments of leisure through learning!

Extra-Curricular Activities - Performing Arts

ENCORE Performing Arts Academy

Ecolint recently created its own performing arts academy, ENCORE. The aim is to build confidence in young people through professional training, offering students a safe and inclusive environment to express themselves with even more creativity, even more mastery and even more fun! For more information, contact allison.bryan@ecolint.ch or browse our website.

ENCORE's areas of activity are open to students of all ages and levels:


From beginner to advanced, students discover the pleasure of dance through a wide range of different styles. Students explore the notion of space through movement with elegance, rigour and technique.


Drama classes are a fun, stimulating and interactive way for students to acquire skills that will be useful in their daily lives. Working in groups or solo, students develop their self-confidence and communication skills through creative and problem-solving work. To achieve these goals, all techniques are covered: improvisation, masks, characters, vocal techniques, stage management and directing.


The London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) is an awarding organization, offering world-renowned qualifications in communication and performance-based subjects. LAMDA qualifications continue to inspire the next generation of confident communicators through the exploration of drama, literature and public speaking, uniting learners in their enthusiasm for performing and a desire to develop skills for life.

Extra-Curricular Activities - Sports


Thanks to our holistic approach to the child, Ecolint's extra-curricular sports programme enables all participants, whatever their level, to develop their physical fitness while acquiring the values and attitudes essential to their social development, such as team spirit, leadership and respect.

Competitive sports

For students interested in competitive sports, we work with various international school leagues at local, national and European level (Ligue du Lac, ADISR, SGIS, schools in Europe and around the world).

While we are always delighted to see our teams bring home trophies, we emphasise first and foremost the enjoyment of taking part, as well as the learning that comes from dealing with big challenges, possible disappointments and team dynamics.

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

Available on all three of our campuses, The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award is the leading international non-academic award. It enables more than a million young people aged 14 to 24 to live their passions to the full by developing transferable skills, improving their physical fitness, cultivating their sense of adventure and creating volunteering opportunities in their community, all while interacting with professionals.

Extra-Curricular Activities - Culture & Leisure

Culture & Leisure

The freedom to play is a fundamental right of every child, and discovery is an important way of recharging batteries. Our wide variety of cultural and leisure activities is an ideal complement to a balanced education, adding a playful component to the school day. Students broaden their knowledge and skills while having fun.

Visual arts

Visual arts lessons allow students to explore creative processes by expressing themselves through a variety of media and techniques. Combining creative freedom with a solid technical foundation, students discover traditional and contemporary art while using the latest technologies. Artistic activities include painting, drawing, sculpture, film, photography and digital comics.


STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and combines these different areas, enabling science and maths to be learned through interdisciplinary projects using technology and engineering principles. Our STEM activities encourage curiosity and independence by linking classroom experiences to real-world concepts. This interdisciplinary experience shows students how the scientific method can be applied to everyday life, while emphasising ethics, sustainability, inventiveness, collaboration and problem-solving.

And more...

Pupils can also choose from a long list of varied and original activities such as Odyssey of the Mind, cooking, gardening, chess, first aid courses and many other instructive and fun activities.
