Al Noor International School Bahrain

Al Noor International School has become one of the top international schools in the Gulf, achieving outstanding results across its IGCSE, A2 Level and A Level students.

Phenomenal results have led to a combined outcome of 60 percent of all students achieving A*, A and B grades in the Cambridge IGCSE examinations held in June 2023.

Around 79 percent of IGCSE students secured grades between A* to C indicating excellent performance and well above global averages.

Some of the key highlights of IGCSE results include:

  • 39 students secured a percentile of 100 percent with GPA 4
  • Seven students achieved seven A*
  • 60 percent secured A*, A & B grades
  • 100 of students passed
  • Overall results include 300 A*, 304A and 297 B 

With regards to AS Levels, 22 students achieved three A results, 95 achieved at least one A and 84 achieved one B. For A Levels, six students achieved three A* grades, 11 achieved only A* and A, with another 39 achieving at least one A*, 62 with one A and 62 with one B.

The vision of Al Noor’s Founder and Chairman, Ali Hasan, saw Al Noor emerge in 1993 from its humble beginnings in Mahooz to the vast institution it is today, supporting families across Bahrain.

Al Noor is a recognised Exam Centre for the Ministry of Education Examinations for Grades 9 to 12. Part of the school’s mission is to provide a comprehensive education to the students of various curricula, including British and Indian.

The school is also a Cambridge Professional Development Centre. Over the years, the school’s management has given prominence to modern trends in education and this focus has resulted in further assistance and commitment from Cambridge. Greater emphasis was placed on teacher training and development, recognising the need for well-trained, confident teachers. It is also the first school to date in the Gulf region to have been awarded the Oxford Quality Programme in recognition of the strong emphasis it places on the effective teaching of reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and the high standard of its practice and pupil outcomes in these areas.
