Our school
Welcome to Brillantmont
Can it really be true? A school which doesn't belong to a group or chain? A school in which every student is seen as an individual? A school in which you can truly be yourself?

Brillantmont is unique. Founded in 1882, it is one of the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland and the only one to be owned and run by the fifth generation of the founding family. We offer a warm, home from home environment to around 80 students, boarding and day, aged 13-18, from 30 different nationalities.

There is only one Brillantmont in the world, just like there is only one of you. We treat everyone as an individual, with unique talents and interests, inspiring them to achieve their full potential.
Brillantmont -a place where our students can grow and develop in and beyond the classroom. Are you ready to become part of the BM family?

Message from the Senior Leadership Team

“When people ask us what makes Brillantmont so special, it’s easy to answer. Quite simply - our students are always at the centre of everything we do.

We’re a small school, with a close-knit community, a family. We respect each other’s differences, we celebrate our different mindsets and together, we support each other as we learn and grow. Our family spirit has never been more evident than in these past few months, when we have pulled together to support each other through challenging times.

Everyone is different; people have different interests, different talents, different goals. As a school, we work together to fulfil the potential of each and every student, shaping them to become engaged, curious and confident in all they undertake, never forgetting that everyone is unique. Our location helps us by providing exceptional opportunities that you cannot find elsewhere. Our students are unique, we are unique; there is only one Brillantmont in the world. We hope to welcome you here soon.”

Brillantmont is five minutes from the city centre in large, beautiful, secure gardens. The school campus is incredible and inspiring! We have eight buildings, most dating from the early 1900s. Behind their old-world charm, you’ll find fantastic, well-equipped, up to date classrooms and boarding areas. At the centre of the campus lies our recently built multipurpose hall, which contains a full sized gymnasium, a music studio and a 100m2 stage.
