Winford Bilingual Primary School

Winford Bilingual Primary School is the only total immersion, dual language primary school in the Netherlands. We have created our own unique curriculum using the Dutch national curriculum and the UK national curriculum, both of which are linked closely with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). This well-rounded approach, along with a Dutch and English teacher in each classroom, means that the children are completely immersed in English and Dutch throughout every school day. They are located in Amsterdam and Leiden.
