Flexible boarding

Flexible boarding packages

When you’re a high flyer yourself, you naturally have high hopes for your children. When your demanding career in the Netherlands means long days at work or abroad, quality time with your kids is at a premium.

Families in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany get the best of both worlds when they choose a flexible boarding package at Eerde International Boarding School.  Next to a full boarding package, it is possible at Eerde, to choose for a five-day boarding option, where the students will leave campus Friday after the last period, and come back on Sunday evening, or Monday morning before class.

Reasons to choose flexible boarding

  • Almost all homework gets done at school
  • Opportunities for extra focus, tuition and coaching in the evenings
  • Time for social and sporting activities with school friends
  • No school-run or time wasted travelling to school each day
  • Parents can focus on busy work schedules knowing the kids are in good hands
  • More quality time at weekends for family and friends

Five-day flexible boarding

From Monday to Friday your child lives at Eerde. They work hard on learning assignments and play hard in sporting, cultural and outdoor activities. Our learning coaches supervise the routine of homework sessions on three weekday evenings in the quiet of the castle’s Library or in the school’s Learning Enrichment Centre. And Friday afternoon, students will leave to go home, where it is possible to arrange transport by school or bring the students to the train station.

Eerde’s flexible boarding packages means we get to spend true quality time with the kids.


Boarding options for day students

Sometimes parents are in need for a boarding option for their children who are day students at our school, for example because they need to travel abroad for work. These students are more than welcome to stay in boarding for 1 or more nights, whenever this is needed (upon request and availability).

Residential accommodation

The two boarding houses in the castle grounds have comfortable bedrooms and cosy shared lounges and kitchens. Together boarding students and staff create a safe, welcoming and warm environment which soon feels like home from home.

Most students opt to share a room with another student in the same age group and same gender. Single rooms are also available (upon request and availability). The rooms are in separate houses for boys and girls. The girls dormitory  have en-suite shower facilities.
