Dear Parents

The British International School, Al Khobar (BISAK) has been providing the very best education for the wider community of Al Khobar since 1977. The school moved to its current site in 1998 where the school has continued to grow and develop with the support of our community and the British Embassy. We are a not for profit school so all our resources are used to support our pupils learning. Our Governing body are volunteer parents who are elected by our British parents to ensure the continued growth and development of our school.

Our school motto, “Let there be peace on earth” symbolises what we expect from all members of our school. We are a community, and a family. This ideal impacts upon every element of our academic and personal lives.

We expect everyone in our school to make the most of their opportunities, to learn something new each day and to reflect upon their experiences. We expect our pupils to work hard and always try their very best at everything that they do. We will assist them, by providing them with the best possible learning environment and outstanding teaching, in an atmosphere of order, discipline and care.

In June 2017, our British School Overseas (BSO) inspection led by PENTA International stated that: “Pupils feel secure and valued within the friendly mutually trustful learning environment that prevails throughout the school.  The pupils, parents and staff are highly committed to the school and feel valued and appreciated.” 

In April 2015, the Council of International Schools (CIS) conducted their 5 year Inspection of the school. The Visitors noted the following: “…the hard working and courteous students, who demonstrate excitement about their learning and are eager to share it with others” 

We are very proud of our school and our pupils. It is very heartening to have a professional and external organisation confirm what we already know.

I joined the school as Head of Secondary in 2010 and I have had the privilege to watch our school grow and develop, I am very proud to be associated with a school that is as successful as BISAK and I thank all pupils, staff, and Governors both current and previous for all their hard work, effort and commitment to our School and to our pupils’ learning.

I hope that I have the opportunity in the very near future to welcome you to our wonderful school.
