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 the city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the school is organised into four sections: Early Years School (3 to 5 years), Infant School (5 to 7 years), Junior School (7 to 11 years) and Senior (11-18 years) each with its own head and team of staff. We currently have just under 900 pupils across the school. The British School of Amsterdam is directed by a whole school leadership team comprising the Principal, Bursar and the heads of the Early Years, Infant, Junior and Senior schools. The Administrative Support Staff consists of admissions, finance, IT, catering, facilities and HR.

Our school offers a stimulating and caring environment, enabling all children 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 who are the school's greatest asset. They are highly professional, caring and committed to providing the best possible education for the children in our care.

Working at The British School we offer the opportunity for staff to work with wonderful children and with an incredibly support staff through the school. We offer competitive salaries including a pension scheme. Staff development is an important priority for the school.

We are accredited by the UK Government as a British School Overseas offering the English National Curriculum leading to IGCSEs and A-Levels. Our most recent inspection report can be found here.
