Meet the Head

I would like to extend a very warm welcome, on behalf of all the staff, to The British School of Amsterdam Senior School.

Having worked as both a teacher and in leadership roles across the school for over 20 years I am proud to be Head of this wonderful school. Our school has an excellent reputation for providing a friendly, warm and positive atmosphere in which all pupils thrive and succeed.

We are all very proud of our school and its achievements. Our small class sizes, high quality teaching and superb enrichment programmes ensure that we provide the best possible educational journey for every pupil.

Amsterdam is a fascinating city for children and young people to live. The enrichment activities we provide in school draw on the opportunities around our school site, from sailing lessons on the canal running past the school, to visits to world class museums.

With 47 different nationalities within our school, our pupils are or become confident and skilled users of English, but also proficient communicators in many other languages.

I invite you to discover the Senior School for yourself by making an appointment to visit.

I can guarantee a warm reception from our staff and students.

With best wishes,

Ms Alison Mitchell
Head of the Senior School
