Once again, BSB has cemented itself as the leading British academic institution in Bahrain.

The BSB Class of 2023 are kind, modest, humble and hardworking. As a group of wonderful individual students, they have made a positive mark on the outstanding school that BSB has become, as well as on their local communities. The BSB Class of 2023 has given to the school outstanding academic results, and superb sporting and musical success, as well as leading a plethora of events to raise spirits, raise money for charity and raise awareness of important topics. These have included Teddy Bear First Aid initiatives for local children, Charity Colour Runs, Charity Football Matches, and Charity Drives to name but a few of the many events and of course, it was this cohort that brought back the BSB BritMun Conference to much acclaim throughout Bahrain.

Today, the entire BSB community joins in celebrating their achievements both in academics and in all other aspects of their time at BSB.


A Word From Our Head


Mr John Maguire | Executive Headmaster

Around Bahrain and the world, there will be so many families celebrating today some wonderful A Level results. It was less than two months ago that we celebrated the graduation of this fantastic cohort in a lavish ceremony. The dignitaries present that evening commented on the breadth of leading universities that the BSB students were graduating to. Pleasingly, with the excellent A Level results released today, most students can progress to their first choice university and go on to great things in the future. BSB has set them up to take the next step in their educational journey. At BSB, we pride ourselves on treating every student as an individual. While collectively, they have achieved great results, it is the individual stories that we are celebrating today. Half of all students gained at least one A grade, which is a remarkable achievement. However, for some students, even a B grade represented a considerable amount of value that the school and its teachers added to them over this time at BSB. The calculated value added is one of the highest in the school’s recent history representing dedicated individual care and excellent teaching at BSB. Today we celebrate every individual student and wish them all the best of luck as they leave for a host of universities across the globe, from Cambridge to Canada, Bath to Bahrain, Dublin to Durban, London to Libson, Manchester to Melbourne and everywhere in between. Good Luck.
