The British School in the Netherlands delivers students a unique learning experience in an international environment where outstanding academics meet a strong focus on personal growth.
With the British Curriculum as a backbone, students from ages 3 to 18 are challenged each school year to expand their mind and understanding of the world and themselves. However, a student’s education at the BSN goes far beyond their exam results.
A wide range of co-curricular activities, fine and performing arts, excellent sport programmes and other educational opportunities in and out of the classroom allow students to try new things to discover their interests. The BSN encourages students to get inspired and follow their passion so they can develop into well-rounded young adults.
Diversity is at the heart of the BSN, both in terms of the multicultural student and staff community, and in the wide range of choice students have in pursuing subjects and activities that interest them.
Fine & Performing Arts
The BSN offers music, drama and arts courses and co-curricular activities that allow students to develop their technical skills as well as their confidence as artists and performers. Drama students have opportunities to see live performances and collaborate in international workshops. Music students can record, produce and publish their original compositions on the BSN Sessions record label. Those who have a passion for art are encouraged to express their ideas and grow into conceptual artists.
BSN Sport fosters talent in our student athletes, while encouraging sportsmanship, leadership and the power of working together on a team. Students can compete internationally in gymnastics, rugby, hockey, swimming, football and more, as well as join junior and co-curricular sport leagues to stay healthy and build skills.
From junior school through sixth form, students can choose to join activities and clubs that enhance their education with opportunities to discover and develop new interests. Activities include chemistry club, STEM club and Model UN which allow senior school students to explore possible future paths. Junior school students can join subjects like young architects, jazz ensemble, gardening club and concert choir to try out new things and find out what interests them.
