Welcome to the Middle School of the Multinational School of Bahrain. At our Middle School we believe that school should be innovative, engaging and enjoyable for all students. Our Middle School learning programme is founded on the ethos of investigative learning and students as teachers. The school ethos is child centred and places importance upon the learner having a greater responsibility for their own learning. It embraces active learning and problem-solving principles. Students acting as teachers provides students with opportunities to consolidate and build upon learned knowledge by working with and helping their peers or junior classmates. Middle School students are at an important time in their lives and the development of clear routines for all students is fundamental to their development. In addition, Middle School quality teaching and learning, assessment and feedback and pastoral care make for an outstanding learner centred and holistic education for all students.
Our curriculum is founded on the Cambridge Curriculum with the goal of moving students to successful completion of the Cambridge IGCSE in Years 10 and 11. Through this, we are able to provide academic rigour and a highly aspirational and challenging curriculum offer for all students. The programmes incorporate a balance between English, Arabic and Islamic Studies, whilst supporting students who have different cultural backgrounds. We explore learning through many areas such as Music, Science, Physical Education, Ctizenship, Art and ICT as we believe children learn and understand their world in different ways. We provide specialist learning programmes for children whose first language may not be English and also programmes to extend and support individual learning needs.
We encourage our parents to take an active role in their children’s learning by attending a range of celebrations and participating in classroom learning experiences throughout the school year. We believe that the partnership between the home, school and the student to ensure students achieve their full learning potential and are equipped with the knowledge and skills to become lifelong learners.
