About us

Amsterdam is a city famed for its relaxed and high quality of life.

It is therefore the best of both worlds when, as well as the quality of life, there is also a quality of education to match.
Here at The British School of Amsterdam, you can both learn well and live well.


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.
