Welcome - By Director
Welcome to our learning community!
At Beacon Private School (BPS) we believe that we are all learners; we strive to equip our learners with the tools to develop socially, emotionally, and academically. We aim to trigger their curiosity in order to prepare them for life as life-long learners. We chose to be different in our approach to teaching and learning, we adopted the Common Ground Collaborative learning ecosystem and framework. This ecosystem gives us a common language for learning, it gives us learning strategies designed around Inquiry and Project Based learning. The CGC allows learners to have a voice and a choice in guiding their own learning outcomes. More importantly, it allows our learners to fully demonstrate the impacts the learning process has had on them, through regular reflections on the conceptual, competency and character learning they acquired. Our learners are agents of their own learning, made only possible through engaging meaningful learning experiences with their teachers and peers.
While we value academic excellence as an important goal in our vision and mission, we also value the development of the child as a whole. Our learners are the heart of BPS. Over the years, as the school grew, we have worked at giving our learners several options to choose from when they graduate from BPS. These options had to fit with our own holistic approach to learning. It is for this reason that our learners will be able to graduate with the Bahrain High School Diploma as well as a New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) recognized High School diploma and an IB diploma since we are currently an eligible candidate school for NEASC and candidate school for IBDP. Quite a feat for such a young school, but a testimony of our dedication to our learners and their future.
This year will see a major addition to our learning environment: the building of our state-of-the-art Secondary School and sporting facilities. Although the recent pandemic did put our development plans on hold for a small time, with the support of the Board, we are now keeping our promise to our learners by equipping them with spaces they will need to grow. With Science laboratories, swimming pools, basketball courts, a theatre and cafeteria, these new facilities will continue to reflect our flexible environment philosophy and offer our learners the best areas in which to learn in Bahrain.
I would like to invite you explore our digital platform where not only I hope you will find all the information you might seek, but also gain an insight into our learning principles and philosophy.
