The British School of Amsterdam is an independent co-educational non-profit day school providing world class learning for children from 3 to 18 years. Currently based on three campuses in the south of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the school is organised into four departments: Early Years (3-5 years), Infant (5-7 years), Junior (7-11 years) and Senior (11-18 years) each with its own head and team of staff. We currently have 890 pupils across the school. The British School of Amsterdam is directed by a whole school management team comprising the Principal, Bursar (business director) and the heads of the Early Years, Infant, Junior and Senior schools. The Support Staff consists of admissions, catering, facilities, finance, HR, IT and marketing.
Our school offers a stimulating and caring environment, enabling all pupils to realise their full potential academically and to develop the skills and confidence for a fulfilling and responsible life in a changing society. We believe that education should nurture a love of learning, a sense of curiosity, a sense of self-worth and the worth of others, a global awareness and a sense of responsibility. As a school, we seek to develop inquiring, imaginative, fascinated, knowledgeable and caring young people with an eagerness for knowledge and a sense of value. Together, we aim to provide young people with the skills they will need to make informed choices in a moral context throughout the rest of their lives.
We are, proudly, a non-selective school with high expectations of all pupils and staff. Out staff are professional, caring, committed and work together, whatever their role, to provide the best possible education for the children in our care.
We are accredited by the UK Government as a British School Overseas offering the National Curriculum for England leading to GCSEs and A-Levels. Our most recent inspection report can be found on our website. .
