A warm welcome to the International School Breda. We are a friendly school community with the aim of nurturing happy children and engaged parents with an enthusiastic team of highly experienced and knowledgeable teaching and support staff.

Our ethos is to put your child’s learning at the centre of everything we do by equipping them with the skills they need to be in control of their own learning. We welcome children and young people, aged 4 to 18, and we are extremely proud to offer primary and secondary international education at our campus. Our team’s priority is to make sure that every student in our school reaches their full potential by receiving an excellent international education that prepares them for a future filled with limitless global opportunities.

In our Primary Department (ages 4 – 11) we recently obtained the status of candidate school* for the PYP, which means we are pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

Our Secondary Department is already an accredited IB World School. Students aged 11 – 16 follow the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) and students aged 16 – 18 prepare for the International Baccalaureate exams through the Diploma Programme (DP). In some circumstances, our DP programme is also open to students who have completed the Dutch HAVO course and are looking for an alternative to the VWO course.

Our primary and secondary departments both work closely with local partner schools within our educational trusts PCPO and Libréon: Dr De Visser for Primary and Mencia de Mendoza for Secondary, a school with whom we share the International Campus. We also have close ties to child care centre Devi Ruitersbosch, part of the Devi Kids organisation and situated right next door to the school, and the International Day Care group of De Boei, which falls under the authority of Kobergroep.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
