To the members of the school community.


The timetable makers have been hard at work this week to create a more efficient timetable for students of the ISG, and the Maartenscollege.

There have been a number of improvements and this means that there will be substantial changes to the timetable for next week, especially in MYP1-5.

A few challenges remain, particularly in the DP where the combination of classes and the numbers of students have made for a difficult situation. We will continue to work on that and keep those affected informed as to our progress.

The timetable will now remain fixed up to at least the Autumn holiday. The week before the holday is the school trip week for the Dutch school and this may create a few knock-on effects on our timetable but we will keep these to a minimum.

We would like to thank you for your support and understanding over the last weeks, and trust this is the begining of a more efficient system with less unexpected changes in the future.


The new timetable can be seen here at the end of today (Friday, 12 September)

Please choose the correct week (38), and then 'klasroosters' and choose your class (stamgroep). Students in DP (not MYP) can also use 'leerlingroosters' and then select their name or use their student number.

Where an 'i' is shown this refers to extra information which cannot fit in the space allowed and does not reflect a free lesson!


Remember, SGS for MYP1&2 will now start start week commencing 15th September. Please see our SGS webpage for further information

Parking your bicycle...

Please do not park your bike by the front gate of the Esserberg or on the Rijksstraatweg itself. It causes great inconvenience to local residents and also can be dangerous as it hinders the view of traffic by the crossing. Please use the regular bike park by the entrance to the Hemmenlaan. Thank you!
