Brexit - Leaving for NL

Brexit, the Netherlands, and Nord Anglia International School Rotterdam

With the UK formally leaving the EU on the 31st of January 2020, Brexit and the potential impact is a hot topic right now. Many families might be worried about the possibility of a relocation should their company decide to move locations. With many companies already moving to the Netherlands, families are trying to find normality as their lives change overnight. Amongst all the changes, finding a great school for their children is usually a first priority. At the Nord Anglia International School Rotterdam, you can be assured of familiarity and quality.

For over 60 years, NAISR has been providing high quality education in a uniquely nurturing environment. We are the only true expat school in Rotterdam and our school  has been graduating students to leading universities around the world, and increasingly to universities right here in the Netherlands. Why? Because Dutch universities are among the best in the world, competitive with many highly regarded UK and US universities.

Dutch Universities

Whether for Primary or Secondary School students, NAISR understands the direct correlation between the environment in which a child learns and his/her future success. Leaving your home country can be overwhelming, and understandably so given the network of support left behind. Work, home, friends, community and the wider environment collectively provide a degree of comfort and security to families at home. Moving abroad changes all of this and with the added worry of a national change like Brexit, this anxiety is only amplified. So how can NAISR help? 

NAISR is known for its warm and welcoming environment, successfully helping students and parents transition into a new school environment, a new community and a new country. Families can immediately feel a sense of security and support as soon as they walk through our doors; this is part of the NAISR experience. With highly trained teachers and a wealth of experience in international education, our small school environment supports the individual development of each and every child. Working alongside our teachers is our Student Services Team, comprised of experts in different fields to ensure all aspects of your child’s development are considered. Brexit worries will soon disappear with the knowledgeable guidance and skillful support from our team.

With a world-renowned international curriculum and students from over 40 nationalities, students enjoy a rich and diverse learning journey. We expect a lot from our students, but we also know how to support them in order to achieve the best results. As a part of Nord Anglia Education, we benefit from being part of a family of over 60 schools and 60,000 students worldwide. Our teachers have access to global professional development programs and can tap into the expertise of Nord Anglia’s dedicated Education team in Oxford.  Meanwhile, our students have access to unique global opportunities bespoke to Nord Anglia such as STEAM with MIT (The Massachusetts Institute of Technology), the Global Campus and UNICEF. These high standards are reflected in the outstanding IB results of our recent graduates, with two of our students achieving 40 points and above.

As part of our holistic approach, NAISR provides opportunities beyond academics as part of our co-curricular program. Our students can choose to join sports teams, pursue their passions for the creative arts, and participate in clubs where they learn new skills or develop existing ones. Our music programme provides opportunities for students to participate in orchestra, band, choir, or to receive private music lessons for a wide range of instruments. NAISR also has a longstanding tradition of parents who willingly share the wealth of their diverse experiences and ideas. Our active Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) is an essential part of our school community and provides opportunities for parents to connect with each other, while simultaneously contributing to the overall NAISR experience for their children.

There is no denying the fact the Brexit will have an impact in many aspects of society. But it doesn’t need to affect the academic career of our children. NAISR creates the environment necessary to ensure every child has a positive and prosperous international education.
