Welcome to Admissions for the International School in Breda.

Esther WassmannMy name is Esther Wassmann and I combine the role of Admissions Manager with being a mum to 5 children, of which 3 are attending/have attended the International School of Breda since 2012; my eldest has just graduated with an IB Diploma and has started university in London, one is currently in the Diploma Programme and one moved after 4 years to continue at the Dutch Secondary next door to the ISB. I have 2 other children attending Dutch Secondary schools in Breda.

Having spent 27 years in the UK, where I worked for a number of international organisations I understand the needs and challenges of the international community. Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and it’s my job to help you making that choice an easy one. Drawing from my own experience, I have found the school to be incredibly welcoming to parents and children alike and having seen my kids flourish here; the atmosphere is both academically inspiring and challenging and the educational team dedicated to support and motivate each student according to their individual needs.

If the ISB has sparked your interest, please give me a call or send an email to: Feel free to contact me in English or in Dutch, I will be glad to guide you through the process in either language.

After our initial contact, I recommend that you visit the school with your children to meet with our education team to discuss the best option for your family. Of course I understand that this may not always be possible if you are living abroad, in which case we can set up a telephone meeting.

The information on our website is comprehensive, so have a browse through the links and please contact me if you are unsure of anything and I will be happy to advise.

Should the ISB be the right choice for you and your family, feel free to make a start with the process of admission, which is fully described within this section of the website in easy-to-follow steps. Again, should you have any queries, I am here to help.

My days of work are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
