Moving to Haarlemmermeer?

Are you relocating from outside this region to the municipality of Haarlemmermeer and looking for a secondary school for your child?
Every* student moving to Haarlemmermeer, after registering with one of the schools, falls under the “duty of care” of that school.
This means that the student will be placed in the school of his/her choice or, if that is not possible, we will arrange placement in one of the other schools in Haarlemmermeer.

*This applies to relocations from outside the region to the municipality of Haarlemmermeer. Relocating within the Haarlemmermeer region does not fall under this rule.
