The BSN focuses on organic growth and has prided itself for always having a place for any student wanting a British curriculum education since 1931. To meet increasing demand and ensure quality of the teaching provision, the BSN has expanded its Junior School Leidschenveen (JSL) campus to include a senior school. This development is testament to the BSN’s ambition to create a learning continuum for ages 3-18 with purpose-built design.
