School Fees

The International School Breda is able to offer first-class international education at a reasonable cost to families thanks to funding from the Dutch Ministry of Education* and subsidies from the Province of Noord-Brabant.

The annual fees per child for school year 2018/2019 are as follows;

  • Nursery from €4,900 based on a minimum of four morning sessions, to a maximum of €10,125 for 5 full days (10 morning and afternoon sessions). Your child may enroll for any combination of morning and afternoon sessions, please contact us for more details
  • Primary €6,000
  • Secondary (IB MYP) €6,900
  • Secondary (IB DP) €7,400

The annual fees per child for school year 2019/2020 are calculated on a different basis to the previous year. An added facility for all pupils and students in the new school year, within our new school building, will be the provision of balanced, nutritious hot meals at lunchtime, which are mandatory for all Nursery (attending full days only) and Primary pupils. The use of this service in the Secondary is optional on a pre-order basis. Furthermore, following a successful trial we also have introduced swimming lessons for all Year 2 to 6 Primary pupils. Hence the school fees for 2019-2020 see the absorption of these additional benefits included at cost price;

Additional Costs:
We aim to keep additional costs to parents to a minimum. However, there are certain things that are not covered by the annual school fee:

Admission Fee:
At the time of application to the school, an admission fee of €400 is required. This fee is non-refundable and must be received before we can process your application for admission.

During the school year, primary children and secondary students go on a variety of educational excursions within the Netherlands. The costs of such trips are included in the annual school fee, although there may be a small charge for lunch or refreshments.

International Trips:
Secondary students may have the opportunity to travel abroad with the ISB. The cost of international trips is not covered by the school fee, but we do our best to keep the cost of such trips to a minimum.

*The ISB is a member of the Dutch International Schools organisation, all of whom are partially funded by the Dutch government. Since this funding doesn’t cover all costs, Dutch International Schools are allowed to charge school fees, within a pre-agreed range, with permission from the Dutch Ministry of Education.

We understand that it may be necessary to move during the school year. Please see below for the relative proportion of school fees due if your child leaves or joins the ISB during the school year:
