Schools in the NetherlandsThese are the schools that English-speaking expats consider in The Hague (but may not necessarily choose).

As often happens in a Guide written by expats and parents ever on the move, our editor for The Hague was re-posted before she could complete this section. 

Until we replace her, we hope the article on schools and list of schools will help you with your search. From interviews with parents and her research thus far, our editor intended to cover (but had not yet visited) the schools we've noted with " - pending".

  • Special educational needs

    Some special needs are easy to spot, others are only determined once a child has experienced considerable difficulties, frustrations or social and emotional problems.  Over the years, diagnosis of and provision for SEN have improved, but both can still be a minefield.

How to find a state grammar school Grammar schools are located in 36 English local authorities. Almost half of these are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston,…

  • Schools for children with performing arts talents

    As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe, Jamie Bell and Charlotte Church standing.
