BSB’s breadth of talent is rewarded by highest A Level results in the Kingdom.


The British School of Bahrain is once again celebrating its A Level results with much cause for pride and congratulations to a brilliant cohort of students who now progress to some of the best universities in the world. 

The Class of 2022 has always made a hugely positive mark on the British School of Bahrain by giving so much of themselves to both the school and the local community. Everyone at BSB is, therefore, delighted that this group of talented students could finish their time at BSB on such a high note. There are many points of success, and families throughout Bahrain will be celebrating today. With 55% of the year group achieving at least one A* grade and almost a quarter of the cohort achieving straight A*/A grades, there is much to celebrate at BSB. 


Executive Headmaster, Mr John Maguire: “The Class of 2022 has achieved so much during their time at the school, and I am delighted by their successes in the challenging A Level examinations. This delightful group of students have shown resilience throughout the global pandemic and met every challenge with vigour and determination. While BSB was renowned for offering the best online learning in the country, for these students, taking in-person examinations was not easy after two years of disruption due to COVID-19. They have achieved so much, and I am proud of every student for what they have achieved both in their academic results and also in so many areas of school life. I look forward to them now becoming esteemed BSB alumni and going off to the best universities in the world.” 

The British School of Bahrain is renowned within the region for providing a world-class holistic education that encourages individuals to pursue their passions in a diverse range of subjects and interests. This excellence across a broad spectrum of subjects reflects the ethos of such a successful school. Arabic language once again shone with all students being awarded an A* or A grade.  

BSB has always been renowned for its excellence in Science, Technology and Economics, reflecting the bright future of Bahrain. We are delighted that this year all Information Technology students achieved the highest grade possible of A* in this subject, while over half of all Economics students achieved an A* or A grade. There was also success in Art and Spanish, reflecting the abundant talents of the BSB Class of 2022. 

Head of Senior School, Mr Wayne Ridgway commented, “I am absolutely delighted to see the success of the graduating class of 2022. Despite the turbulence they have experienced over the entirety of their A Level and BTEC courses, they have achieved fantastic results and now head off to some of the best universities around the world to begin their next chapter. Throughout their entire journey, they have embodied our BSB values through their school work, projects, extra-curricular pursuits and, of course, their academic achievement. None have shined through more than determination, ambition, and resilience, which enabled them to exceed even their own expectations. I am also proud of the outstanding BSB staff, who go above and beyond for their students in order to provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in their 6th form studies and beyond. The class of 2022 leave BSB as humble, determined and confident young adults ready to flourish in their chosen future pathways.”
