Working at the School

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.

The school is organised into three sections: Early Years School (3 to 6 years), Junior School (6 to 11 years), and Senior (11 to 18 years), each with its own head and team of staff.

We currently have over 1,000 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, Junior and Senior schools. The Administrative Support Staff consists of admissions, finance, IT, communications, catering, facilities and HR.

Creating an environment for pupils to thrive
We are proudly a non-selective school with high expectations of all pupils and staff who are the school’s greatest asset. Our staff are highly professional, caring and committed to providing the best possible education for the children in our care. 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.

Our school offers an environment that enables 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. Education should nurture a love of learning, a sense of curiosity, a sense of self-worth and the worth of others. 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.

A rewarding career with The British School
Working at the School we offer the opportunity to work with wonderful children that enjoy learning, with incredible colleagues that have a wealth of experience (as many of our staff have been with us for several years) and a motivated team of support staff. The School has an international team that currently includes 24 different nationalities.

We offer competitive salaries including a pension scheme. Staff development is an important priority and we will encourage and seek opportunities for growth. You will also be working in a beautiful building and location with state-of-the-art facilities to support you provide the best teaching experience for pupils.

The British School of Amsterdam is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. Any role offered at The British School will be subject to various background checks that include receipt of satisfactory references, proof of relevant qualifications, identification checks and police checks (including overseas).
