Excellent facilities

Surval is housed in a former hotel, with all the facilities one expects of Swiss hospitality. In summer camp, bedrooms are for three (or very occasionally four of the youngest) girls. All have en suite facilities, almost all have balconies with a small table and chairs for relaxation or study, and all have a fridge. Wifi is available throughout the building until 11pm.

The housekeeping staff work tirelessly through 7 days a week to ensure that the cleanliness and presentation of the school matches hotel standards. Girls are expected to make their beds and keep their rooms tidy. This is very important in camp where girls may change their clothes several times a day. They take their laundry bag to the laundry each Sunday, and collect their clean laundry on a Thursday.

The dining room is one of the great attractions of the school. It is set for tables of four, with one long table down the middle of the room, so girls can eat in small groups or join a larger table if they prefer. The housekeeping staff take great pride in the dining room which is always a civilised and pleasant place to eat. Meals, cooked by our team of chefs, are delicious. After a substantial breakfast girls also have a break for coffee, hot chocolate or other drinks and a small snack. Lunch and supper are three course meals, always healthy and enjoyable. Special diets are catered for and these must be communicated in advance. Do make sure to let us know if your daughter requires a special diet of any kind.

The Library, completely refurbished in January 2013, has comfortable seating with chesterfields and club chairs. Girls can read from the substantial array of books, or watch films in the evening when activities are over. Various card and board games and puzzles are always popular. On the ground floor our large dual aspect art room looks out over the lake and is a much valued source of inspiration.

For sport, we have our own tennis court (built into the mountain on motorway-type concrete pillars!), a dance studio, a fitness room and access to local amenities if the summer weather turns wet. We use the indoor Olympic size swimming pool at Clarens and swimming and all other water sports on the lake. Much of our sporting activity takes place out of doors in the natural amenities provided in this amazing environment.
