Entrance Procedure


Parents and students are invited to come to International School Eerde for an interview and a tour of the campus. During the interview, prior education and expectations for the future will be thoroughly discussed, including the student’s interests and ambitions. It is essential that a student is motivated to join us. Following this meeting, the student’s Mathematics and English language skills will be assessed according to the level required for the specific year group. As the language of instruction is English, we expect students to have a specified level of English prior to enrolment. If the level of English is insufficient according to school requirements, the student will have to follow additional English lessons in our school (extra costs will apply).

Education program

The philosophy of education at International School Eerde is directed at the maximum realisation of each individual’s talents and potential. The chosen educational programme is based on the Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary 1, Cambridge Secondary 2 or IBDP. Each of these programmes demand a series of internal assessment tasks, which are submitted for correction and evaluation. In this way the teachers are able to monitor each student’s true progress adapting the student’s curriculum accordingly. Teaching staff enter both student effort and results including specific recommendations and tasks in our interactive administrative system.

Data needed for our assessment of student’s academic and  non-academic level

  • School reports of last school attended
  • Reports on career/intelligence/aptitude
  • Recommendations by former teachers/headmaster
  • Preferred choice of subjects

  • Any further relevant information

Entrance requirements International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme

A student wishing to attend the IBDP must be able to show that he/she is capable of following the course with the expectation that he/she will complete the 2 year diploma programme successfully. Potential candidates should, therefore, have demonstrated the ability to achieve at a high academic level.

We expect this student:
•    to have passed at least 5 subjects at IGCSE/GCSE/GCE “O” level with grades C and above or
•    to have finished tenth grade of the American high school system or
•    to have a Dutch HAVO diploma or
•    to have completed the Dutch 4 VWO

Students who have successfully completed other national secondary education programmes for at least 4 or 5 years (depending on the school system) will be allowed a conditional entry. Exceptions are only made when International School Eerde predicts that the student has great potential to pass the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme.

For non-European students entering our IB Diploma programme additional conditions apply.
