Aiglon College


In 1949 John Corlette conceived Aiglon on foundations that have ensured our school and its students continue to evolve and thrive.

For over seventy years Aiglon has benefitted from a founder whose classical ideas, joined with progressive philosophies, continue to inspire our development. From the school’s very beginning with just six pupils to the thriving school we are today, John Corlette is the creative and committed root from which each of our individual journeys has grown.


Mr Corlette’s own formative years placed him in an excellent position to relate to the students he would go on to teach and the school he would found. Born in London in 1911, at the age of 16 ill health brought him to Switzerland to recuperate and continue his education at Alpine College in nearby Arveyes. Much like present-day Aiglonians who have followed him up the mountain, Mr Corlette came to understand how the mountainous environment of Villars and the inspiring vistas hold the potential to influence not only each day of our education but impact our wider understanding of the world.
