Proudly Multinational

“At MNS, we pride ourselves on our warm, inclusive atmosphere and truly multinational environment. We currently have over 50 different nationalities represented amongst our staff and students.”

In September, Multinational School Bahrain will be celebrating its 10th anniversary. Since its establishment, the school has grown tremendously due to its highly inclusive approach to education, and its nurturing environment. Here’s what makes the school a prime choice for students.

Multinational School Bahrain, located in Adliya, was founded in September 2013 and is an accredited British School Overseas. The school teaches the British Curriculum with accreditation from Cambridge International and Pearson Edexcel. It is, notably, the only Ministry of Education-approved inclusive British school and is currently registered with BSME (British Schools of the Middle East). 

MNS believes in, and promotes, academic excellence. Each student is regarded as an individual and their academic progress is appropriately managed so that they are able to achieve and work to the best of their abilities. In fact, the school has a specialised department dedicated to assisting students who require Learning Enrichment support, as well as a growing ‘Gifted and Talented’ programme. 

The school offers high-quality teaching and learning so that students are adequately prepared to thrive in a global society. MNS staff enjoy ongoing professional development through a variety of courses, extensive ICT training and have learnt to adapt their teaching methodology to either online, in-person or hybrid learning models. 

Nursery to Year 13 
The school accepts students from the age of three. Its curriculum is creative, broad and driven by meaningful and rich experiences which ignite students’ inquisitiveness and inspires them to develop a lifelong desire to learn and discover. The school is passionate about collaborative working to ensure all its students transition seamlessly into their schooling journey, developing their fundamental cognitive abilities while being equipped with a holistic set of key life skills.

MNS offers the IGCSE, A levels and BTEC qualifications at its Senior School as well as the Bahrain Senior School diploma inclusive of Arabic and Islamic studies. The Senior School reflects the maturing nature of its students and the necessity for them to engage responsibly and maturely in their approach towards their goals. At the senior level, the school engages its students in a variety of activities, which leads to meaningful personal growth where they represent the school’s shared values in real life situations and assume an active role in making the world a better place.

Learning Enrichment 
Cognisant of the fact that each student is unique, the school provides an inclusive, holistic and aspirational education for all its students regardless of their abilities, prior knowledge or background. Its Learning Enrichment department supports what happens in the classroom by ensuring that all MNS students are equipped to be able to develop to the best of their abilities. The department works in three distinct areas: English Language support and development for those students for whom English is not their first language; Additional Group (or intensive) support for those students requiring specific interventions; and the growing ‘Gifted and Talented’ programme.
