We also provide IB Arabic (Ab Initio).
We are proud of our Arabic language as it is the language of our Quran and spoken by millions of people around the world.
At St Christopher’s School we seek always to recruit qualified and experienced teachers who are able to use modern, educational and interesting methods.
As St Christopher’s School offers the British National curriculum, a large number of the students are non Arabs. This gives the school and the teacher the responsibility to teach them Arabic through using methods that suit the student’s individual needs.
As for Arab students, the school uses the local curriculum from the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The teacher is free to be creative and present the subject in an interesting way and we require teachers to find ways to encourage the student to love his mother language. The teacher, as an educator ensures that the students behave well, love their heritage and learn how to treat others sensibly, as well as teaching them the four skills of language, listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Senior school students can be entered for the following examinations depending on their level of Arabic:
Year 9 can be entered for G.C.S.E Arabic (second language)
Year 10 can be entered for I.G.C.S.E Arabic ( First language)
Year 11 can be entered for A Level Arabic (Edexcel)
Sixth form can be entered for IB Arabic.

St Christopher’s is an English speaking school that provides Islamic Studies for all Muslim students. The curriculum is built on exploring verses of the Quran, sayings of the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). It aims to give pupils a clear, thorough understanding of Islamic teachings, moral behaviour and Islamic etiquettes.
As well as the above, some of the important figures in Islamic history are also studies, such as the lives of Prophets: Adam, Moses, Jesus and of course Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). Students also learn about Muslims’ contribution to modern science.
Our school uses the Ministry of Education curriculum of Islamic Studies for Arabs. For non-Arab students, the school uses the Islamic Good Word courses. They are specifically designed with non Arab-Muslim students in mind.
Our aim is to create an enjoyable, practical method of learning and teaching Islam.
The school holds the subject in great importance and offers to care for the Muslim community in the best possible way.
The school holds Islamic Assemblies regularly where students are taught about their religion, led by the Head of Arabic and Islamic Studies. Moreover, we encourage our students to organise charity events to raise money to help the poor and needy in and outside the Kingdom of Bahrain.
