Bilingual Primary School in Amsterdam

Bilingual Primary School in Amsterdam

Winford Bilingual Primary School is a global school focused on the highest quality bilingual primary education.  We have locations in Amsterdam and Haarlem.

We are delighted to announce our new bilingual location in The Hague will open May 2024.  For more information click here.



Our goal is to prepare your child for life beyond the primary classroom. During their time at our school, they follow the DutchUK, and IPC curriculum. This approach provides children with a very solid emotional, intellectual, and cultural basis for secondary schooling.

True bilingualism allows students to pursue their secondary education in the Dutch or International environments successfully. Winford Bilingual's whole-child approach integrates Montessori ideals of independence, curiosity, love of learning, and a sense of community. 

What makes us special?

Two Teachers Per Classroom

Each classroom has a fully qualified English and Dutch speaking teacher. Each teacher speaks their native language to our students, and all subjects are taught in both languages.
