Admission criteria

To join the school, pupils must be 4 years old, or turning 4 during the calendar year when they start.

There are screening tests for all pupils, to see whether they can fit into the school, and this depends on the age and level of the pupil.

We encourage a ‘trial day’ for pupils enrolling in either our nursery and primary cycles or secondary cycle.

Admission for Dutch pupils

Many Dutch parents wish their children to have the specialised education that an international school in the Netherlands can offer.

Special rules apply for Dutch pupils and all applications have to be approved by inspectors from the Ministry of Education.

We can advise you at the application stage whether you will be able to apply for a place at our school.
