10th Grade

Overview: Year 10 (English Lower Fifth Form). This is also English College Year 1 (EC1) in our English College.

Hull’s school is the first college in Switzerland to be offering an English Year 10 programme for both Swiss and international adolescents. It is called Year 10 because the majority of the students complete Year 9 in the Swiss educational system before joining. The programme is modelled on the UK Lower Fifth Form. All subjects are taught in English with the exception of French and German. Successful students spend a further three years preparing for university entrance (IGCSE, GCE A-levels).



  • successful students continue for three additional years in which they pass their university entrance examinations (IGCSE, A-levels)
  • a motivating environment for adolescents who wish to learn
  • suitable for students who have followed the Swiss Sekundarschul curriculum (Sek A)
  • suitable for students who have been educated at international schools or schools based on the UK curriculum in Switzerland or abroad (Upper Fourth Form)
  • small classes with a maximum of 16 students
  • English-speaking teachers who are committed to the success of their students
  • native-speaking modern language teachers
  • international certificates (Cambridge First, IGCSE French)
  • academic and pastoral support
