Nadeen School heading
Since 1978, Nadeen School has been dedicated to providing a nurturing, safe, stimulating, and encouraging environment in which children of all ages, nationalities, abilities, and strengths can develop a lifelong love for exploration and learning.

Welcome to our website!

Please be advised that there are many web sites detailing information about schools in Bahrain, and that this is the only official web site for Nadeen School

Nadeen School, established in 1978, is a Primary School, consisting of Pre-School, Infant, and Junior sections, with classes from Pre-Nursery through to Year 6. Children attend the school from 2-11 years of age. We follow the English National Curriculum, and supplement our activities and learning with different schemes and resources from Australia, New Zealand, the USA, and elsewhere. We are, along with only one other English National Curriculum school in Bahrain, a registered member of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME) association. Please click here to download a copy of the BSO report.

You can also find out more about the BSME here for more information about the British Schools of the Middle East:

We currently have 400 children enrolled in the school from 51 countries, and the mix of children creates a happy atmosphere where different cultures mix and learn from each other. We have over 50 full time staff and additional part-time and support staff mainly from the UK, Ireland, America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Our class work is mostly topic/theme based with a strong emphasis placed on language, expression, imagination, art, and music. History, Geography, Art-and-Craft, and Science and Technology are incorporated into these centers of interest, as well as taught separately. Music, Drama, PE, and Library are in the weekly syllabus for all children. The children are taught in whole-class, group, and individual sessions.

We have a strong Learning Support Department which works with children who need extra support with mathematics, language, literacy, and reading.

Pauline Puri has been the Principal of Nadeen School since 1984. Originally from Australia, Pauline moved to Bahrain with her family in the early 1980's and joined Nadeen School shortly after arriving. Pauline's dedication to the children and the school has ensured that, while the school has grown dramatically over the years, it has never lost its warm, caring, and nurturing atmosphere.
