From August 2016, the Primary campus has been located in an attractive building near the city centre of Enschede. We have a spacious green playground around the school where learning and activities can continue, specially set out for ‘play-based learning’. While playing, our students learn to discover the world. Our school is an open, safe, warm and challenging environment. The heart of the building is the main hall, used for assemblies, social events and community get-togethers. Our classrooms are centered around stimulation and motivation, with focus on the interests and living environment of the students. In addition, we have a library, a small gym and an Arts and Crafts workshop.

Many of our parents and students cycle to school. The bicycles can be parked on the premises. Cars may be parked in the surrounding streets free of charge.
