New International Primary School Leiden

The Dutch Ministry of Education has given its permission to start the development of a new international primary school in the Leiden region. This will be the second international primary school in the region, which already has the International School Elckerlyc in Leiderdorp.

As a reflection of the increasing internationalization, the need for international education has become so considerable that Elckerlyc now continuously has a waiting list, with its available capacity being insufficient to accommodate the growing demand. Institutions like Leiden University and LUMC, as well as other schools in the area with international programs, are similarly noticing the growing number of knowledge workers and their families in the region. The arrival of this new school could thus not have come at a better time!

The new school is a joint initiative between the municipalities of Leiden and Oegstgeest, and the school boards PROOLeiden and OPOO. The school will be built in the vicinity of the Bioscience Park, with the initiative striving to start up during the 2019-2020 school year.

Expat Management Group’s relocation team can assist with arranging an orientation tour to visit International Schools with in most cases without the need to already inscribe to the school. For assistance, please contact Pauline Son, Director of Sales and Operations via
