A ‘School Inspection’ is a term destined to instil trepidation into the most confident of teachers and the most outstanding of schools. Why then would The British School in The Netherlands (BSN) voluntarily put itself through such a thing? The answer is easy: the BSN is a school that believes in continual progress – in learning about itself as a school, about what it does well and what it could potentially do better.
At the end of November, the final report was published and the BSN achieved a rating of “Excellent”, the highest category, across all criteria.
One excerpt from the report: “The school is highly successful in achieving its aims for educating the students in an international environment of excellence. At all levels of the school, the achievement of students is excellent.”
