School holidays (including flexible holidays)

Winford Bilingual Flexible School Holidays

Our flexible holiday schedule allows our families to take up to 40 days holidays throughout the academic year. In addition to these flexible days, the school is also closed for four weeks in August, two weeks in December and for any national public holidays. This means that your vacation and travel schedule is not bound exclusively to the Dutch holiday schedule. Our families can choose the holiday travel dates that work best for them. 
 
Parents submit vacation requests every six weeks to correspond with the classrooms' work periods. Children may take up to 40 days spread out throughout per school year, in addition to the fixed days that the school is closed. 
 
We advise a minimum of ten days per half-year: ten days between September and the end of February and ten days between March and the end of the school year.

For requests of more than 10 days at one time, permission must be requested from the classroom teachers.

See FAQ "Calendar" for the fixed school holidays.
