The British School in The Netherlands – What Sets Us Apart?
For more than 80 years, the British School in The Netherlands (BSN) has been located in the beautiful city of The Hague, in the heart of The Netherlands. We are now one of the largest and most successful international schools in Europe.
As an ‘Internationally British’ school, we are enriched by a hugely diverse community composed of over 80 nationalities. We welcome children and young people from all corners of the globe – encouraging cultural connections both in and outside our classrooms.
The BSN’s ethos goes way beyond ensuring that our students receive a rounded, results-focused education delivered in English – a British education creates open-minded, confident, creative and thoughtful individuals.
We know that moving to a new country and starting at a new school is an exciting time – at the BSN we do all that we can to help children and their families settle in as quickly as possible. We are very experienced in welcoming newcomers, not only in September but throughout the whole school year.
From the moment a child joins us, our experienced staff ensure that they quickly settle in and start to enjoy the wonderfully rich and inspiring educational environment that is uniquely ours.
Our students learn through practice and experience – supported by great teaching, innovative resources and an international context. They are always encouraged to be creative in their thinking and they are expected to work hard. It is this potent mix that makes us proud to be a leader in European international education – it’s this that makes the BSN ‘Internationally British’.
