Join the network of the European Schools. Begin your educational journey today. Enrol today European school of Bergen Our pupils in this 4-18 school are educated in a secure, happy, relaxed yet stimulating and challenging multilingual environment. The learning of languages taught by native speakers is at the core of our mission as we prepare pupils to be aware and responsible European citizens, following a broad European curriculum leading to the highly regarded European Baccalaureate. Most pupils leave the school with a high level of fluency in at least two languages, although it is more common for them to have good language skills in at least three to four languages by the time they finish in the secondary cycle, including competence in Dutch if they are non-Dutch speakers. Our pupils have the chance to participate in a wide range of educational, cultural and social activities in the school, the local community and in many events across Europe before they go on to study at a range of the top universities in Europe and North America. Much is done to preserve and promote the cultural identity of the pupils who come from more than forty different countries. A special feature of the system is the teaching of the human sciences (history and geography) in the second language, and this represents part of the original cultural vision of the European Schools. The sciences and Mathematics have an important role in the curriculum which reflects our close relationship with the Joint Research Centre in Petten. The school also puts emphasis on the creative arts; and music, art and drama are very much part of daily life in lessons, concerts and performances. Pupils participate in a wide range of sporting activities in the school and beyond. We use the latest developments in educational technology to develop ICT skills which prepare pupils for life beyond school, and some participate in distance learning lessons with teachers across the continent which gives our school an even more European flavour.

They may be Dutch children who grew up abroad, have one Dutch parent or they come from local Dutch families in the area. However an application for admission must be submitted to the Ministry of Education via the school. For Dutch pupils, the school is the equivalent of VWO. aHow well recognised is the European Baccalaureate and the ES curriculum?The EB and our curriculum are recognised throughout the European Union as equivalent to the national system, and this makes it easy for pupils to transfer in and out at any stage of their education. The EB is a well recognised qualification which leads to entry to top universities in Europe and around the world. The EB is monitored by the national inspectors for the European Schools. aWhat is the difference between the European Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate?The EB is a qualification unique to the European Schools and it offers the examinations in different languages. There are similarities with the IB, but the IB is much more focused around subjects taught in the English language. IB does not offer the same variety of mother tongue tuition or subjects taught in other EU languages. At ESB, we offer a complete curriculum in English, French and Dutch. The EB is monitored by the national inspectors for the European Schools, and so it is a genuine European Union qualification. aAre there places available, or are there waiting lists?There are places available in all sections and at all levels at our school in the Netherlands. We have a large building with many facilities. There are currently no waiting lists. If you are interested in providing your children with an international education, we encourage you to apply. aWhat are Category 1, 2 and 3 pupils?Category I: Pupils who have to be admitted to the European Schools because their parents work for a European Union institution. These pupils are exempt from school fees. Category II: Pupils covered by individual agreements or decisions, each entailing specific rights and obligations for the pupils concerned, particularly as regards school fees. Category III: Pupils who do not belong to categories I and II. These pupils are admitted to the European Schools in so far as places are available. The ordinary school fees, fixed by the Board of Governors, would be payable for these pupils. aWhat is the difference between a European School and an International School?In an international school, there is one working language, with other languages taught as foreign languages. In a European School like ours, the curriculum is delivered in different languages and it can meet the needs of children from many different backgrounds. ESB focuses on a truly international education, by offering a European experience and several languages.
