These are the schools that English-speaking expats consider in Arnhem (but may not necessarily choose).
As often happens in a Guide written by expats and parents ever on the move, our editor for Arnhem 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".

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, with only a few grammar schools.
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. And for some extraordinary - though totally understandable - reason, everyone but us seems blind to our offspring's God-given artistic gifts.
The headmaster/mistress runs the school but boarding houses are usually the domain of either houseparents or, in smaller schools, the head of boarding. Whilst the housemaster/mistress oversee the house, the day-to-day running is usually under the supervision of a matron.
