Our Staff

In 2015 the Independent Schools Inspection Report rated The BSN 'excellent' across all criteria - this was achieved because of our exceptional staff.  

At the BSN we actively seek out and recruit education professionals who are highly qualified, dedicated and committed to their work.  With over 500 staff recruited from around the world - our colleagues come from over 40 different countries.  BSN teachers are experienced in international education and support our students to learn and grow within a caring and supportive community.  

Although our student body can often change - with new students joining us at any time of the school year - our staff are well established and have an average length of service of 7+ years.

Teaching is excellent; teachers have strong knowledge of their subject and of the students' needs.  Lessons are well planned; great care is taken to match work to the abilities and language skills of the students.

Specialist Staff

The BSN aims to be an inclusive school and our highly experienced Additional Educational Needs staff, work with students across our four schools to ensure that students’ individual needs are supported appropriately.

We have an excellent English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department who are used to working with students of all ages and abilities and quickly help students settle into our community.

Specialist teachers for Physical Education (PE), Music and Dutch language provision at the Junior Schools also ensures that our students benefit from expert tuition and support. 

Each school campus has its own School Nurse on site during the day. These highly qualified individuals are responsible for the provision of first aid, health promotion and administration of necessary medication according the agreed care plans.

Our team of Concierges are always on hand to support staff and students with a range of services - ranging from maintaining our grounds and facilities, through to set construction and staging for big events - they really do ensure that the school runs like clockwork.
