Who we are

We aspire to be a world class school providing an outstanding British education to the international community of Amsterdam.

What we are

The British School of Amsterdam is an accredited world class provider of the National Curriculum for England to the international community in Amsterdam. We are the only school in the city to deliver this.

We have four school sections, each with their own distinctive character. The Early Years School is for children aged 3 to 5 years old, The Infant School for 5 to 7 year olds, The Junior School for 7 to 11 year olds and The Senior School for 11 to 18 year olds. All schools have their own head and leadership structures.

When we move to our new buldings in April 20210 we will all finally be under one roof. Importantly, each school is of a size small enough that your child can be recognised as an individual with their own talents and potential but large enough to have some of the finest teachers and facilities in the city.

What we aim to do

Academic achievement is at the heart of the school. Your child will find an atmosphere of purposeful curiosity, essential for developing the love of learning that will propel them forward in the world they will enter.

In tandem with an academic focus, our school makes every effort to encourage every child to develop in other important ways – life skills such as confidence, good manners, public speaking and conversational ability.

We also introduce our children, whatever their talents, to the joys and opportunities outside the classroom in the arts, sports, hobbies, teamwork and leadership activities.

We are enthusiastic about our role as a hub and meeting point for families from all over the world. The nurturing of a robust and mutually rewarding school community is central to the school.

We provide a proven preparation for entry to the finest universities in the UK, Europe and the USA.
