If you are looking for a high-quality international school in the Netherlands focus on Eerde International Boarding School Netherlands.
Welcome in Eerde
Eerde is the oldest international boarding school (founded in 1934) to offer education for students aged 4 to 19 years, and the only international school to offer boarding from age 12 in the Netherlands. Located on a tranquil estate, in the forest of Ommen, our school is located in a castle, built in 1715, which offers a home for students from more than 20 countries.
We offer education to day students, who leave our school at the end of the day to go home, but also to boarding students (as of 12 years old), who stay in our boarding houses during weekdays, or seven days a week. Eerde is the only international school to offer boarding from age 12 in the Netherlands.
Eerde is accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and we are a member of the Boarding School Association (BSA) and Middle School Association (MSA).
Eerde has an internationally-recognised full English-language educational offer, guaranteeing the inflow and outflow for children from expat families runs smoothly.
We offer the following curricula:
- Primary (age 4 – 11 years) International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and Cambridge curriculum for English and Math.
- Middle School (ages 11 – 14 years, grade 6, 7 and 8) International Middle Years Curriculum and Cambridge curriculum for English and Math.
- High school (ages 14 – 16 years, grade 9 and 10) Cambridge IGCSE (comparable to Dutch HAVO diploma).
- High school (ages 16-19, years grade 11 and 12) International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), comparable to Dutch VWO, giving access to over 3,300 higher educational institutions worldwide.
During their studies, students are intensively guided in their choice of the next step in their educational career and their application to the university or higher education of their choice.
During their school career at Eerde, students can follow the course of their native language (for example Dutch, French, German, Swedish) and complete it with a certification.
