We know that one of the most important decisions that a parent makes on behalf of their child is the decision about which school to send them to. There are few things which are likely to have more impact on a young person's future than the quality of the school they attend. So we work hard to ensure that everyone who sends their child to the BSN is happy with that choice.
It is our belief that every child deserves the very best start in life and we make it our purpose to provide just that to all the children who enter our doors. We endeavour to provide the best possible teaching and curriculum; we want your child to make progress and achieve the very best they can; but most of all we want the children at the BSN to be happy and enjoy their life with us.
Established back in 1931 The British School in The Netherlands has a tradition of quality. The school was founded on the principles of developing and challenging the whole individual – 'head, hand & heart' – producing students with high aspirations and confident independence.
We pride ourselves on the fostering of strong values: mutual understanding, respect for others and high personal endeavour form part of our students' everyday lives. Being part of the BSN is about more than school work though. We try to offer our students a treasure chest of worthwhile and exciting experiences which they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
We provide a warm welcome and ongoing support for all new families who join us and do all that we can to help both parents and pupils settle in. We are lucky to be enriched by such cultural diversity – an amazing 80+ nationalities are represented throughout the BSN, providing an added dimension to all our lives.
Above all we are proud of our students and what they achieve, and share with them a pride in our school. We are a happy learning community, where learning is enjoyed and valued. We believe that we offer one of the best educational experiences in the world. I hope that looking through this site you will start to believe it too.
