The British School in The Netherlands
At the start of a new school year, we are excited to be recruiting for a very special role: CEO! It’s an exciting and rare opportunity to lead one of the premier international schools in Europe.

The role of CEO is to challenge, motivate and support our strong team of seasoned Headteachers, Central Services Leaders and our diverse client community. The result will be further improved educational outcomes for our students. Our new CEO must drive our vision for the continuing development of the school. They will need to take account of the dynamics of the international environment in which we operate and the environment that our students will enter. It’s undoubtedly a challenging role given the BSN’s size, complexity and reputation; but, immensely interesting and rewarding; our students and staff are truly wonderful!

Our new CEO will be an experienced senior leader with high level communication skills, an open and inclusive style, and the ability to bring people along.  And, of course, a passion and vision for education! They can manage–with energy–a large organisation and value working in an international context.

Our new CEO will begin in August 2020. Until then, the BSN will be led by an Executive Leadership Team (ELT) comprising Sue Aspinall, Headteacher JSV, Paul Topping, Headteacher SSV and Stuart de Booij, CFO. The ELT and Headteachers visited all of our campuses in one afternoon to officially welcome staff back and talk about the 2019/2020 BSN strategic priorities. And, for the benefit of new staff, they explained the BSN management/governance structure.

We have 5 campuses comprising 3 juniors schools, 2 senior schools, Central Services, The Language Centre and ILA. Each school is led by a Headteacher who, along with the ELT and CFO, form the Board of Management (BoM). Yes, we do like abbreviations. The BoM is chaired by the ELT and answers to the school’s Board of Governors (BoG) that is in turn overseen by the ’Association’. 

It was also illuminating to learn more about the finances. The BSN is somewhat different from many other international schools; it is a non-profit organisation (‘vereniging’ in Dutch) and entirely dependent on fee income and receives no subsidy from either the Dutch or British Governments.
