"We have a warm and friendly atmosphere thanks to everyone - the children, the students, the parents and the staff."


The International School Breda is able to offer first-class international education at a reasonable cost to families thanks to funding from the Dutch Ministry of Education* and subsidies from the Province of Noord-Brabant.  

The annual fee per child is:

  • Nursery
    • €120 per week (1/2 days)
    • €200 per week (full days)
  • Primary                     €5,600
  • Secondary (IB MYP)   €6,600
  • Secondary (IB DP)     €7,100
  • Childcare fee schedule (.pdf)

Fees are payable annually and should be paid in two instalments: 

50% before 1st August
50% before 1st January

Additional CostsWe aim to keep additional costs to parents to a minimum. However, there are certain things that are not covered by the annual school fee:

Admission Fee
At the time of application to the school, an admission fee of €300 is required.  This fee is non-refundable and must be received before we can process your application for admission.

Secondary students may have the opportunity to travel abroad with the ISB. The cost of international trips is not covered by the school fee, but we do our best to keep the cost of such trips to a minimum.
During the school year, primary children and secondary students go on a variety of educational excursions within the Netherlands.  The costs of such trips are included in the annual school fee, although there may be a small charge for lunch or refreshments.

At secondary school, every student requires a laptop. The ISB works with Amac to offer on an Apple laptop at a reduced price, the full details of which are available once placement is confirmed. Please note: It is not essential for students to purchase an Apple laptop as most software used at the ISB is available for both Windows and Macs. However, should you have questions about whether your child's laptop is equipped with all necessary software, we can put you in touch with a member of our ICT staff during the admissions process. Primary children do not require a laptop as iPads are provided for the children’s use.

*The ISB is a member of the Dutch International Schools organisation, all of whom are partially funded by the Dutch government.  Since this funding doesn’t cover all costs, Dutch International Schools are allowed to charge school fees, within a pre-agreed range, with permission from the Dutch Ministry of Education.

What happens if we move during the school year? 
Of course we understand that it’s necessary to move during the school year.  Please see below for an indication of the school fees due if your child is:
