St Christopher's School, Isa Town, Bahrain

From its modest beginnings in a villa in 1961, St Christopher's has grown into a large, internationally renowned, non-profit making school with over 2100 students from more than sixty nations. These children and young people, from three to eighteen years of age, benefit from the excellence, dedication and hard work of our teachers and support staff who together form a team dedicated to the creation and maintenance of an environment in which each student can learn effectively. In our school, we encourage the notion that personal improvement and development is always possible - no matter how high the current level of achievement and success. In line with this philosophy, our teachers use innovative as well as traditional methods; over recent years we have implemented aspects of practice drawn from Accelerated Learning concepts and the Building Learning Power framework developed by Guy Claxton. We have also refined our whole approach to assessment through the use of what is known as Assessment for Learning. Through these initiatives, and other Learning to Learn approaches, we seek to ensure that our students become "autonomous learners" fully prepared and competent to meet head-on the challenges and vagaries of life in the rapidly changing world we share.The values and concepts that guide a school such as ours are not easy to summarise briefly, but we believe that the constituent words of what we call the St Christophers ā€˜Sā€™ ā€“ Caring, Learning, Communicating - say a lot about what we are, especially when considered together with our Five Pillars of Learning that we have adapted and expanded from ideas to be found in the four aspects of learning described in a report to UNESCO by Jacques Delors. Our Mission Statement helps to complete the picture!
