Meet the Principal
Welcome, I am very pleased that you are taking a look at our website.
We are aware that as parents you have many options for child’s education available to you in Amsterdam. At The British School of Amsterdam we appreciate that families moving around the globe have a lot to contend with.
We are the only school in Amsterdam to offer the full English National Curriculum leading to the highly regarded GCSE and A Level qualifications. This curriculum and qualifications are acknowledged in all countries, including the USA. And as you would expect from a school offering this worldwide educational standard, we have the calibre of staff to match. Unlike many international schools, a large proportion of our staff have been teaching here for many years.Read more
The British School of Amsterdam was created in 1978 when three families, posted for two years to the Netherlands decided to teach their children from one of their homes.
The founding idea was that the pupils should not fall behind the British School system whilst overseas.
Fast forward to April 2021 and we moved into our world-class new home on the Havenstraat.
A British education
Around the world a British education is rightly perceived as the gold standard.
A British education prides itself on providing high quality education and developing well-rounded individuals, nurturing each child holistically.
