The British School of Amsterdam was founded in 1978 with the aim of not letting children fall behind in the British Education System during their temporary residence in the Netherlands. The school gradually expanded and now caters for students from 3 -18 years old.


The school has a very diverse community, with over 40 nationalities of pupils and staff. Our location has historical significance as a 19th century monument and the important architecture is still preserved and can be observed when entering the building and classrooms. It is an award winning building and received the Geurt Brinkgreve Bokaal 2021 award.

From the secretariat

MUN is a great opportunity for students to learn debating and public speaking skills while also learning a lot about the world and current issues. Being able to organise this conference has been a great honour and privilege and we hope everyone has a great time.

Last years' conference


The British School of Amsterdam campus is located on Havenstraat 6 in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid, alongside one of the most well-known streets in Amsterdam: the Amstelveenseweg.

The BSA encourages all pupils and visitors to travel sustainably by walking, cycling and using public transport. Fortunately, our campus is incredibly accessible by all of these options.

All local transport stops are within a short walking distance and some are even right across the school. The nearest bus station is Haarlemmermeerstation, which connects to both GVB and Connexxion buses.

Other nearby tram stations include Amstelveenseweg, Valeriusplein en Olympiaweg. In addition, our school is also at a 2km distance from Station Zuid with metros, trams, trains and buses which allow you to get to the airport and the other side of Amsterdam all within 10 minutes.
