Bilingual, because it’s a big, big world

Onder De Bogen is the first fully bilingual primary school in Utrecht. This means that we teach in Dutch and English to all of our students​​. We use the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) for subjects like art, geography, history, music, science, society and international learning goals. With this, we prepare our students for the present and future society.
The main language between school and parents is Dutch. We expect students who attend our school to have at least a basic knowledge of the Dutch language and to be able to follow the Dutch curriculum.
