Uniform for pupils in the Early Years and Infant School

Nursery, Reception, Years 1 & 2

All children are expected to wear school uniform. Uniform is an important part of school life. It helps forge a common identity, as well as allowing children to be focused for school life and learning, and equipped for the different activities at school. Please support us by ensuring that your child adheres to the school uniform code. The school uniform shop in the Infant school stocks a range of uniform items. School uniform can also be bought from large UK department stores/supermarkets.

Children in Reception, Year 1 & 2 need a P.E kit, (white t-shirt, navy blue shorts) which is stored in their P.E bag and kept in school.

The Early Years and Infant School have a navy school uniform. In the Infant School the uniform consists of a navy blue branded sweatshirt or cardigan, a navy or white polo shirt and navy or dark coloured trousers, navy skirt or tunic. School shoes should be dark and suitable for outdoor use.

Branded uniform items are supplied by the Receptionists at the Infant School (Jan van Eijckstraat 21, Amsterdam) every day from 9am-1pm.

Uniform for pupils in the Senior School

Years 7 to 13

The Senior School pupils (Years 7 to 11) wear their school uniform with pride, identifying them not only as part of the British School of Amsterdam community, but also because of its different burgundy colour scheme, as Senior pupils within the school.

The Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13) encourages smart, stylish, business-like dress that reflects our pupils’ self-confidence, pride and individuality, without detracting from our educational purpose.
