Wecome from Head of School
A very warm welcome to our primary school in the beautiful city of Delft, The Netherlands.
I feel very privileged to be leading the International School Delft. My journey has spanned over 25 years, 5 countries and a variety of educational contexts and it is a pleasure to be part of the ISD community in this vibrant and historic city.
My vision is that all children feel loved, safe, understood and listened to. I believe that we all can achieve success in whatever field we wish to pursue and that success can be reflected in many forms. I believe it is my purpose and mission to support and guide in that pursuit and create a place of peace, connection and a sanctuary for all to learn.
ISD is proud to be an International Baccalaureate school. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is focussed on student-led inquiry based learning which provides children with, not only, the academic foundations but also positive wellbeing by living the learner profiles and our core values so we can be our best authentic selves.
Our school motto 'Inspiring learning for bright futures' encapsulates how we take responsibility for ourselves so we are inspired to reach our goals, fulfil our potential and become successful lifelong learners.
It is our purpose that everyone in our community will be the best version of themselves so that they are inspired to make a difference in the world. I recommend the school for your consideration and wholeheartedly welcome you to come and experience it first hand.
I am proud to be a member of this school community and am confident that the educational environment at ISD caters for all dimensions of a child’s well being while also fostering their individual talents.
