Bilingual - because the world is big

Onder De Bogen is the first bilingual primary school in Utrecht, with Dutch and English as the official languages of the school. We work with the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for citizenship education, history, science and technology and the creative subjects: drawing, dance, drama, crafts and music. pupils take English from group 1 to 8, according to a fixed programme.

In this way, we prepare our pupils for the society of the 21st century. This preparation allows them to connect with people all over the world and offers an enormous trove of knowledge and information. Our programme expands on this by facilitating connections with foreign schools and organizations.

We want our pupils to become inquisitive citizens of the world and we see a good command of the English language as a logical foundation for them.
