The British School of Bahrain



We are BSB, a school with roots in the historic and culturally rich country of Bahrain, which is now growing within the global community. Join us on this journey.


The British School of Bahrain is committed to providing a high-quality, international education for students in the Kingdom of Bahrain. We are a selective, coeducational, independent Nursery-through-Year 13 school. Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England and Wales, with some adaptations to the local context and offers IGCSE and A-Level/BTEC examinations. While the language of academic instruction is English, we are a truly international school, and our pupils and staff come from over 82 different nationalities. The school has 2900 students on roll aged 3-18, it has a warm feel to it, and there is a sense of fun. Most importantly, our students are a joy to teach.
