Proud history in Amsterdam

The British School of Amsterdam has been a part of the city and its international community for 40 years. From small-scale beginnings in 1978, the school has grown to accommodate nearly 1,000 children between the ages 3 and 18 years. To go along with that growth, the school has now moved to a new building.
