The British School in the Netherlands

For more than 80 years, the 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 – our recent examination results speak for themselves.

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.

Our mission is to deliver academic excellence and create inspiring places for children and young people to learn and grow into confident individuals. What our three junior campuses and one senior campus share is a world-renowned British curriculum and, at the Senior School, a unique choice between International Baccalaureate (IB) Programmes and A Level examinations. Our aim is to enable our students to leave The BSN and head for the college of their choice as well as many of the world's leading universities.

Life at the BSN is so much more than our classrooms. Our wide range of co-curricular activities – both during and after school – offer students the chance to extend and enrich their interests, as well as providing opportunities for personal development.

Students mix and form new friendships, in some cases outside their own year group or campus as they learn new skills, or perfect existing ones.  The lessons learnt through collaboration on after school projects, hours of dance rehearsal or dedicated sporting practice are invaluable. It is through a full range of clubs, activities and sports that we help students find their true passions.
