Relocating to Belgium & need advice on Schools


Hello everyone,

I am due to relocate to Belgium at the beginning of next year for work and I am bringing my Wife and three children. We are relocating from England and I am currently struggle to find any free international schools in Belgium, do these even exist? I have seen a few paid international schools however the fees are not something I can afford to begin with which is why I would prefer a free school.

My children are only just starting to learn French in school however it won't be enough to put them into a public school in Belgium. One of my children is 12 so has just gone up to big school and the other two are 10 and 7.

If free international schools don't exist, is home schooling an option we could do with our children? maybe my Wife teach them as she won't be working straight away.

Any information would be very much appreciated.

Thank You


Some public belgian schools in Brussels provide special classes (primo-arrivant - DASPA) for foreigners who are newly arrived or have been admitted for residence. For international schools in Brussels you have this website , but as you have read, these school are expensive. Public schools in Brussels are inexpensive. It's up to you to decide how much money you want to spend.
