International School Life
In the Senior School we aim:
To nurture and inspire all pupils in our inclusive, diverse community, encouraging and fostering tolerance and respect for all.
To empower pupils to take risks in their learning and support them in their educational journey, within and beyond the curriculum, to unlock their full and unique potential.
To develop creative, independent and innovative learners.
The Senior School follows the National Curriculum used in England where Years 7 to 9 follow the Key Stage 3 Curriculum, Years 10 and 11 study a combination of IGCSEs and GCSEs and the Sixth form follows the A Level programme.
The British School of Amsterdam is an accredited centre for the following awarding bodies:
Cambridge International Examinations
Pearson (formerly Edexcel)
Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA)
Oxford and Cambridge RSA (OCR)
This enables us to choose the most appropriate syllabus for each subject to suit our students.
Regular inspections occur during each examination period to ensure our examinations are conducted appropriately.
As a non-selective school our pupils attain excellent examination results. We hold exams once a year in May/June.
