The British School of Amsterdam Senior School offers a wide range of morning, lunchtime and after school clubs. Our dedicated staff lead clubs and activities which provide pupils with the opportunity to pursue and develop their own interests, to experience new ventures, and to compete as individuals or as a member of a team in various settings.
Homework Club runs most afternoons after school finishes. This can be attended as a drop-in activity. There may be some pupils who are asked to go to homework club on a more regular basis if it is felt this will be beneficial. Homework Club is monitored by teachers who can support the pupils in their study methods, not necessarily the content of the homework.
We aim to educate the whole child, and in line with this ethos, an extensive sports programme is provided. All pupils have physical education (PE) lessons each week in the Senior School.
The PE department deliver a broad curriculum of team sports, gymnastics, dance, outdoor activities, athletics and swimming. In Key Stage 3 and 4, the physical education programme aims to enable pupils to realise their full potential in a variety of physical activities and stimulate a lasting interest in physical exercise and sport. The pupils’ physical fitness, movement, co-ordination and motor skills are developed as is the ability to work with others, developing the qualities and values of leadership, respect, teamwork and fair play.
After school each day and as part of the clubs programme, the pupils have the opportunity to take part in many sports training activities. A huge breadth of sports are on offer and range from individual activities such as Karate, kayaking and dance, to the more traditional sports of football, table tennis, running, basketball and rowing. Through these activities students learn the value of being physically active and develop positive personal and social attitudes.
Our fitness suite also offers our pupils the opportunities to set goals on personal fitness plans and train during the school day.
