| These pages introduce you to a legendary Swiss school,
made special by its thousands of alumni from all
over the world, all of whom will testify to their
enduring attachment to lifelong Rosean friends and
to the school itself.
Rosey’s 380 students are all boarders and
share life on two campuses: the first an
attractive manorial estate in Rolle beside Lake
Geneva, and the second, during the winter months,
in the picturesque alpine ski resort of Gstaad.
students must sit either the International Baccalaureate
(IB) or French baccalauréat after
following an academic programme with the chance
to take each subject in either English or French,
as well as studying one, two or even three further
They live in an international
community to which each Rosean contributes
through his or her own language, culture and religion;
making the campus a true “global village”
to share with friends.
Roseans have sports
and artistic activities every day, and
along with responsibilities they take on through
clubs and societies, they are encouraged to develop
their "multiple intelligences" and talents.
The Rosey spirit has
its roots in values which stretch back to the
school’s foundation in 1880: friendship
and a sense of unity shared by students and staff
alike, respect for oneself and for others, the
right degree of discipline, the courage to face
difficulties, and the will-power to overcome them.
We hope you enjoy finding
out about life at Le Rosey – a life you
may one day wish to share.
