Open for Learning


Establishing a Virtual School Environment is a new venture for BSB and we are excited by the opportunities that it presents. Higher education is already moving rapidly into online and distant learning and therefore the skills learnt during this period will be useful for all students in the future. 

Within our design of the BSB Virtual School Environment we have retained two core elements that we believe make BSB an outstanding school. Firstly, the live pupil-teacher interaction which is fundamental to all pupils making progress and achieving their full potential. Pupils gain so much from the direct interaction with passionate and talented teachers. The second core element is the desire to maintain our personalised learning approach that treats every pupil as an individual and support them pastorally and academically at all times.

We believe that online learning will develop in all students the skills required for independent learning alongside the 21st Century skills to learn in digital environment.

Education is certainly changing and all at BSB are keen to change with it. 

 

What will your child's virtual day look like


Guided distance learning will be provided for all students of all ages at The British School of Bahrain for as long as the campus is temporarily closed. The School will continue to provide every possible opportunity, through a virtual school environment, for pupils to make progress as if the school were in normal operation.
