Nadeen School is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and is the proud recipient of a host of international awards.
In January this year Nadeen School was the only school in the Middle East to bring back an award from the prestigious British International School Awards (BISA) in the UK. The recognition for ‘Outstanding Pastoral Initiative’ truly reflects and celebrates the school’s holistic approach to education and strongly held belief that all children, regardless of ability, have the right to an outstanding education. In March, Nadeen School was presented with another international award, for literacy excellence, after achieving the highest scores in Bahrain in the globally run PIRLS assessment. It is one of the founding members of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME) and an accredited member of the group. Nadeen School is also one of only two British Schools Overseas (BSO) schools in Bahrain, registered and recognised by the British Government and Department for Education.
Combining the best of many different education systems, with high-tech at one end of the spectrum and forest schools at the other, is the key to Nadeen’s success. Fundamental to its ethos and practise is its whole-child and child-centred approach to education. The school’s creative, individualised approach to the curriculum and to all pupils ensures students’ success, both personally and academically.
The family-style school, with the motto “Small School – Big Family”, is further enhanced through its green spaces, school farm, cosy campus and an open door policy. Parents and visitors are welcome at any time. Currently located in Umm Al Hassam, the school is actively looking for a new site and purpose-built campus to provide even more to its students and community. It is looking forward to the next stage of development and thanks all current and past families and staff for their support over the years.
