About British School of Bahrain
The British School of Bahrain (BSB) is a Kindergarten through Year 13 School located on one campus in Hamala. The school began as an impromptu establishment during the First Gulf War, and was formally founded in 1995. The town of Hamala has a population of 18,000, and is a half hour drive from the nation’s capital Manama. BSB is divided into Infant, Junior, and Senior sections. Specialist facilities include science labs, music and art rooms, and a drama studio. Sporting facilities include a floodlit astro-turf football pitch, tennis courts and two indoor pools, one for younger children. The school follows the National Curriculum of the United Kingdom, with some adaptations to reflect the local historical, cultural and physical features of Bahrain. While English is the primary language of instruction at BSB, the school also operates mixed-language groups both outside and inside the classroom. The school has a Student Council and Prefect system.
