The British School in the Netherlands, founded in 1935, is an independent co-educational day school, constituted as a legal association governed by a Board of Governors and managed by a Principal.

The FOUNDATION SCHOOL is located in The Hague in refurbished accommodation, for Nursery and Reception children aged 3-5 years.

JUNIOR SCHOOL: this new building (1997) occupies landscaped grounds, providing a secure learning environment. The curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum. Pupils sit a variety of tests including UK Standard Tests at 7 and 11 years. There is a circular drama studio, library, music rooms, specialist science and technology laboratories and IT room. The well-equipped classrooms have their own networked computers and printer.

SENIOR SCHOOL: Set within its own playing fields just north of The Hague, the school is easily accessible by road and rail. Modern facilities include sports fields and gymnasium, IT rooms networked to all classrooms, modern science laboratories, libraries, music rooms, food technology rooms, art/craft rooms, careers library, technology workshops and a sixth form common room. Students follow a broad general curriculum up to the age of 16 years, balancing academic, practical and creative subjects and leading to the GCSE examinations. Sixth Form pupils (16-18 years) follow a course to GCE 'AS' and 'A' levels chosen from a range of subjects and supplemented by a key skills and general studies programme, leading to worldwide university entrance. An English as a Second Language (EAL) department provides intensive support for non-English-speaking pupils throughout the school. There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities, field trips for the senior school year group and visits to local places of interest for younger pupils. A school bus service is available offering transport to and from a wide area.

Admission is granted at any time in the school year following an interview with the applicant and his/her parents and the evaluation of a report from the previous school.
