South East Campus

Our South East Campus is situated in a brand new state-of-the-art building, filled with natural light. The campus is located in a green and spacious area with good infrastructure in the South East of Amsterdam. It provides an eco-friendly environment, nurturing and yet challenging our children on both an academic and social level.

The AICS South East Campus currently has over 550 students enrolled, representing more than 50 nationalities. AICS South East offers the full PYP (Primary Years Programme), MYP (Middle Years Programme) and DP (Diploma Programme) curriculum of the International Baccalaureate. In the summer of 2023 our whole AICS South East community will move to our new campus which will be situated in a monumental building known as the Sandcastle on Bijlmerplein 1000.

In the Sandcastle we will be able to eventually host up to 1400 students.

Day and After School Care

After school clubs

We have been working successfully with Kind&Co in the school year 2021-2022, using their platform to professionalise our after school activity process and we are happy to inform you that Kind&Co will be fully coordinating the AICS after school clubs starting in the school year 2022-2023 at all of our three campuses. Kind&Co is an established and professional, non-profit organisation that has experience with after school care and after school activities for international schools in the Netherlands. The after school clubs programme offers a variety of safe and age appropriate after school activities to all primary students across all three campuses. Our students can participate in after school activities such as dance, sewing, chess, art, guitar, film and many more. The After School Club coordinator from Kind&Co is Simone Krap. Please feel free to contact Simone whenever you have questions, nice ideas or suggestions at

After school care (BSO)

At our South and Satellite campus our after school care is offered by Partou. Partou is the largest provider of high-quality childcare in the Netherlands and has offered their services to the AICS since 2016. Their after school care is located within the South and Satellite school buildings. For our students at the South East campus there will be two options for the school year 2022- 2023, while we are preparing ourselves and our community for the move to the Sandcastle:

• Students move with Partou across the road to the Klaverblad location for their after school care (BSO). Parents can decide to stay there for the full school year or choose to move from Partou to Kind&Co for the remainder of the school year per January 2023.

• Students will wait until end of first quarter 2023 to join after school care (BSO) when Kind&Co will open their after school care facility in our temporary Southeast building.

In August 2023, the Southeast campus will move to the new Sandcastle building. Kind&Co will move with the school and continue their after school care facility in the new school building. We are confident that these changes will result in a sustainable and integrated partnership between the AICS and Kind&Co that will connect after school care with the after school activities in the coming years. For any questions regarding after school care, please contact


All our campuses have access to gym facilities, a library, as well as arts and performance/exhibition facilities.

In addition, we have a two science labs, a dance room, a music and drama room, a little gym and two assembly halls. These facilities support our curriculum and provide opportunities for extra-curricular activities.

Furthermore, we also have a World Cafe. This facility is open every day for secondary students, AICS parents and staff.

Sandcastle tour: AICS principal and the original architect of the Sandcastle building.

We are on track for the move over the summer break 2023. We are not able to take groups of the community into the building until May, as it disrupts the building process and we want to avoid delay at all cost.  So, we tried to bring the Sandcastle to you in the form of a video with the original architect, Max van Huut. It is very special that he is also the architect who is helping us to convert the ING offices into a school. Click here for the video.
