The school was primarily established to provide an education to the children of staff posted to nearby domestic, and European atomic research projects and facilities; the Belgian governments' nuclear research centre, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's Eurochemic nuclear fuel reprocessing plant (now defunct), and the European Atomic Energy Community's Central Bureau for Nuclear Measurements (now under the auspices of the European Commission as the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurements).[2]

However, the school has also welcomed children from other European or overseas families who live and work in the area.[2] Buses bring pupils from as far as Antwerp and Eindhoven, with nearby facilities to accommodate boarders during the school week.[2]
