About Amity International School, Amsterdam

Amity International School Amsterdam has a vision to, ‘Empower each individual to thrive and make a positive difference’. We are a candidate school for the PYP and are pursuing authorisation as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

Our curriculum is based on the principle that children’s best learning happens when they are engaged and emotionally involved in their education, when it is meaningful to them and relates to the world around them. At Amity International School our students’ educational experiences will be individualised, based upon their skills, abilities, interests, needs and learning styles. A fundamental part of our curriculum is the opportunity to go out into the real world, to talk to experts and have a ‘hands on’ experience. This enables children to form a personal connection with their education and deepens their understanding, transforming learning into something vivid and real.

Amity International School Amsterdam is an educational institution in a start-up phase. Whilst having big ambitions for the future, the school is operating on a small scale at the present time. If you are internationally minded, permitted to work in the European Union and have the desire to help shape the exciting future of our school, we would be delighted to hear from you.

What people say about us

“Amity International school is refreshing because it has a small class and school’s “NO HOMEWORK” policy was so welcomed so that we can enjoy after school as a family. The education environment is perfect and offers a variety of after-school activities, diligent teachers, friendly staff members including the Principal. The staff are polite and energetic and help the parents to drive our kids to enjoy their daily life. Overall it is awesome!

- Early Years Parent

“Finding the right school for our children was the one thing we stressed about as parents during this move to Amsterdam. Amity has not only erased any fears for us but truly made this an amazing experience for our 3 children. They are actually disappointed on weekends when there is no school. The leadership and energy from Mr. Porritt flows through every staff member you meet. It is truly contagious. There is an evident clear focus, passion and mission for education and all-around student growth!”

- Primary School Parent

We not only believe that students are at the centre of the school, but that in the end, the school is truly theirs.

- David Porritt - School Principal
