Whether you are a member of our administration or support staff, a teacher, or working in one of our boarding houses, we are a school that believes in the power of action, engagement and participation.

Students at Beau Soleil experience a unique holistic education which is built around four core values: Respect, Responsibility, Ambition and Determination. These values underpin all that we do, providing a strong moral compass to our diverse international community, which is made up of students from nearly sixty countries around the world.

Beau Soleil offers curricula in both English and French, following International Baccalaureate and High School Diploma Programmes. Students also participate in a world class range of service and adventure trips and expeditions, designed to build their personal resilience, character and compassion. Our summer camp programme, held in July, gives campers the opportunity to gain an insight into an education at Beau Soleil.

All staff are encouraged to participate actively in school life, strengthening the sense of community by sharing the experience of expeditions, challenges, activities and events throughout the year.
