International education with Dutch roots
Our Dutch Stream has been a stronghold for more than 100 years. Education is based on the Dutch national curriculum and inspired by the International Primary Curriculum, allowing children to develop an international mindset while also maintaining their Dutch roots. Everyday, children are taught English as a second language.
The International Primary Curriculum (IPC) enables us to teach subjects in a thematic way, and make cross-references between subjects, with a global perspective. By integrating IPC and an English language programme into the daily curriculum, we have created a mirrored learning experience to the English Stream in our primary school.

Smooth transition to secondary education
A number of foreign schools offer an hour or two of Dutch lessons in order to preserve children’s native language skills. This is not the same as the Dutch education that we provide. The children who attend our Dutch Stream preserve their mother tongue, while also mastering the English language at a high level. If your family returns to the Netherlands or Belgium, your children will be able to enter the Dutch education system – even at secondary school level – without any problems and will also have a huge advantage with regard to the English language.
English as a Second Language
In the Dutch Stream, classes are conducted in Dutch, but we understand the importance of developing a high level of the English language and therefore we provide an English language programme tought by Native English speakers on a daily basis.
