Welcome to the Secondary School!
Our students aged 11 to 18 enjoy facilities which include assembly halls, science, language and computer laboratories, music studios, a theatre, cafeteria and multimedia centre. Sports facilities include a modern sports hall, synthetic football pitch and basketball courts.
From Years 7 to 9 (age 11-14), students can choose to study the IB Middle Years Programme in English, French, or a bilingual combination of both. From Year 10 onwards, your child will choose either the IGCSE and IB Diploma or the Swiss maturité programme. Both provide excellent preparation for higher education at top institutions around the world. La Châtaigneraie is the only Ecolint campus offering the national secondary diploma, the maturité suisse.
