The values of the Spirit of Zuoz are particularly evident in boarding house life. Community life in the junior and senior girls' and boys' boarding houses would not be possible without mutual respect, tolerance and fairness.
The younger boys and girls live in family-like surroundings, while the older ones have more privileges, and also greater responsibility. The House Captains, representatives of the students, work closely with the boarding-house teams to help in the planning of boarding house life, in which the organization of the house matches play an important role. Furthermore, they are to lead by example and to motivate others to integrate themselves positively into the Lyceum community.
There is a varied programme of extra-curricular activities including the school band, the theatre groups and the debating society. On the ten annual Community Weekends students can choose from an attractive range of activities including river rafting, horse riding, sleigh rides and outings to the theatre and musicals.
However, school comes first. Students receive individual support from subject teachers in evening homework sessions and an in-house computer network gives the boarding house teams direct access to continually updated information on test scores. This makes it possible for them to react efficiently to address academic problems. Additional support or added challenge is available for those with special educational needs.
