At BSB juniors, children come first. Our priority is to make them feel welcome, settled, valued and part of the BSB family. BSB’s curriculum is based on the National Curriculum for England and Wales, adapted to the needs of an international community in a British educational environment. English is the medium of instruction, as well as a subject of study in its own right. Arabic, the mother tongue of Bahrain, is a core subject for all our students, taught in sets according to prior experience of the language, from complete beginners to fluent Arabic speakers. Twenty-first century skills run throughout the curriculum, setting children on the right path toward their secondary education. However, Junior School is about far more than preparation for Senior School. It is a colourfully illustrated chapter of a child’s life, which can never be repeated. Junior education matters, and that is why we make it our business to get it right, for every child.
