KEY INFORMATION

THE SCHOOL IN BRIEF

LE RÉGENT: TRULY SWISS TRULY INTERNATIONAL

A Swiss IB World School purpose-built in 2015 with an international academic programme for children aged 3 to 18, leading to IGCSEs and the IB. Synonymous with challenges, expeditions and trips designed to help the young discover sports, arts and the outdoors, and to deepen cultural understanding.

In Crans-Montana in Valais, one of the sunniest and safest areas of the Swiss Alps at an altitude of 1,500 metres, where the air is pure, the panoramic views glorious, and the people warm and welcoming.

Le Régent, the most modern and recent of Swiss international schools, now under the guidance of Le Rosey.

LOCATION

Le Régent is situated in Crans-Montana, Valais – about 20 minutes from the town of Sierre. We are located at an altitude of 1,500 metres and therefore we suggest to visitors that they come prepared with warm clothes and sensible footwear during the winter months. We are accessible from 4 airports: the small airport of Sion (35 minutes away), the two international Swiss airports of Geneva (2 ½ hours) and Zürich (2 ¾), the Italian airport of Milan (3 hours) and the Hélipade of Chermignon.
