Best schools in Arnhem Netherlands

A snapshot overview of schools in Arnhem that are considered (although not necessarily chosen) by English-speaking expat parents.

If there is no ribbon, pending or otherwise, it means we are aware of the school but have elected not to review it at this time. This could be for a number of reasons, but we continually update information and add or remove reviews as deemed appropriate.

Schools selected for full GSGI review are noted with next to their names.

By full GSGI review, we mean the school write-ups that are completely selected, researched, visited and written by our own editors. Our final write-ups take the good with the bad, warts and all, but we look for a preponderance of good before we drill down for in-depth details descend on the school for an exhaustive visit.

These schools have been brought to our attention, but until we have more reports from parents, we are unable to consider reviewing them.


‘t Pompeltje - Pre-school

No English-language pre-schools in Arnhem, but many international parents send children to ‘t Pompeltje, the pre-school attached to the Aletta Jacobs School. Instruction is in Dutch. Parents are usually offered places for twice weekly attendance: one afternoon and one morning session (8:30-12:00 or 1:00-3:30). There is a waiting list.
