The International Middle Year Curriculum (IMYC) and Cambridge Secondary 1 (CS1) curriculum are used at state schools, public schools and international schools all over the world. International School Eerde offers both and combines the best of these two educational programmes.


IGCSE (15-16Yr)
The IGCSE has been developed by Cambridge UK for international English education for students of different levels and backgrounds. The IGCSE is recognised by very many countries as the equivalent of their own national examinations. Forms 4 and 5 follow the IGCSE at International School Eerde. They are forms 3 and 4 of secondary education for the Netherlands. Students sit an examination when they are approximately 16.


IB (16-19Yr)
The IB programme educates the student intellectually, personally, emotionally and socially. IB students are critical thinkers who excel in their professional direction and who have learned what perseverance means.
