Frequently Asked Questions
What is the language of instruction?
Our department focuses on the English language and we only give 2 hours of Dutch lessons to the children who are either fluent in English or who have gained sufficient command of the English language to start studying another language. With only two hours of Dutch per week (and only starting from age 6 onwards) we cannot guarantee that your child will master the Dutch language and it is important to remember that a transition to a Dutch or bilingual school later might prove difficult.
How much are the school fees and can I pay in monthly instalments.
The school fees are € 3750 per child per year for the school year 2020 2021
The school fees for the school year 2021-2022 will be € 3750 per child.
In addition, an application fee of € 150 per child is required to cover administration costs and reserve a place for your child. The application fee is not refundable and is due at the time of application.
Our school fees are used to pay class teachers, extra teachers (EAL, Dutch, PE) ,field trips cleaning costs, resources such as books, furniture, etc.
The school fees cannot be paid in monthly instalments but it is possible to pay either in one instalment in September or in two instalments (one in September, the other in January). If the school fees are paid by a company, they can only be paid in one instalment.
For children starting during the school year, the school fees are calculated pro-rata. The same applies to children who leave during the school year and if you leave earlier than expected, you can request a refund for overpaid fees (please refer to our Terms and Conditions for details)..

What do I do if my child is sick and cannot come to school?
The Dutch laws of attendance are very strict and our school is required to keep records of absences. It is therefore imperative that you communicate with our school if your child cannot come to school. If your child is unwell, we kindly ask that you contact your teacher on the day before 8:45 am.
