Admissions Process

The International School Delft exists to provide a quality international education in English for children in the Delft / The Hague area.

We welcome students from the international community of all nationalities, faiths, beliefs and cultures.

The general criteria for admission are:

  • The student has a non-Dutch nationality/is a foreign passport holder, and one of the parents/legal guardians is temporarily employed in The Netherlands;
  • Or the student has Dutch nationality and has lived and attended school abroad for at least two years;
  • Or the student has Dutch nationality and has a parent/legal guardian (with whom the student will be living) who will be stationed abroad within two years.

One other condition is that the school programme should be appropriate for the student’s needs and the student should be able to benefit from the programme. We can hold a place for your child for 3 months from the date of requested entry.
