Creative arts

In tandem with an academic focus, our school encourages every child to develop in other important ways, whatever their talents, to the joys and opportunities outside the classroom.

House system

The house system is an important part of life in a British school.
All the pupils in the Junior and Senior Schools belong to one of four houses.



As part of the health and welfare of every pupil, physical education is a core component of school life and pupils learn the importance of staying fit and active.

Pupil Voice

At The British School of Amsterdam we believe it is important that we consult with our pupils and consider their opinions, ideas and thoughts, to help us to evaluate what the children like about their school and what we can do to make it even better for them.
