6-11 year olds

Welcome to the Junior School

The Junior School is for children between the ages of 6 to 11.

The School offers a secure environment where children learn to work in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect. We aim to make our curriculum exciting, relevant and challenging for our pupils. School is a busy place, but we aim to know each child individually and create a happy atmosphere where children feel part of the School community and do well academically and socially.

Vice Principal, Head of the Junior School

Meet the Head

I have been at the School since September 2009, before this I was a headteacher in London, and have been teaching for over 30 years with experience across the primary age range, including 20 years in leadership roles.

I am really proud of our school, and the staff who work here that are committed to making your child’s time with us as full and as happy as possible. Amsterdam is a great place to live and work, and we aim to offer the best elements of a British education in an international setting, combined with a fun and energetic attitude to learning.

International School Life

The school day is structured into six fifty minute periods, with two break times, an hour for lunch and story time at the end of each day. The day runs from 8.45 to
3.25 (for Years 2 and 3) or 3.30 (for Years 4 to 6) with after school clubs and activities taking place each evening until 4.45.


We follow the National Curriculum used in England where English and Mathematics are taught every day. Science, History, Geography, Art, Design & Technology and Computing are all taught through a topic based approach in short or long units. There are key objectives that are taught through the lessons and each lesson is tailored to suit the learning ability within a class. In addition, we have specialist teachers delivery Art, Music, PE and Languages.

Children learn to work in an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect and can enjoy an extensive programme of extracurricular activities and there are dedicated music rooms for private music tuition.
