At St Christopher's Bahrain, we love to host and attend a multitude of different events for Students, Parents and the community alike. Take a closer look at some of the regular events we throw at the school!
The annual Festive Fayre is organised by the Friends of St Chris (FOSC) as the School’s main fundraising event; the first not-for-profit school in the Kingdom of Bahrain, all income is used to run and further develop the School for the benefit of our pupils.
The Fayre is very well attended, and has seen in excess of 4500 visitors from across the wider Bahrain community come together in recent years. This is a HUGE event on the St Chris calendar and all the proceeds are used to further develop and enhance the school facilities.
The St Christopher's Senior School Productions have become a much-loved family pastime in Bahrain, and these experiences invite our students to take their love for theatre into a professional setting. With students performing to wider audiences, over three nights.
St Christopher’s School is excited to announce that the second instalment of the Bahrain Future Learning Summit will be taking place this April!

St Christopher’s Music Festival has been running since 1998 and next year we will celebrate 21 years of fantastic musical competition. The Festival celebrates music at all levels and it is always a joy to listen to children of all ages and abilities.
The aim of the Festival is to give the students the opportunity to compete against, and to mix with other like-minded children from across the Kingdom of Bahrain. To have the confidence to perform in front of a large audience takes a great deal of courage and all of our competitors should feel very proud of themselves.
The BSME (British Schools in the Middle East) Young Musicians of the Gulf (YMOG) event was originally conceived in 1998 as a celebration of young musical talent within the Gulf, and has since become a most prestigious and high-profile competition in the region. St Christopher’s School is proud to have initiated and played host to an event of such magnitude since its creation, with only the exception of 2013, when it was held in Dubai.
Imagine a world without music... We must nourish our young people and allow them to explore all options during school so that they have the opportunity to choose the path less travelled. And YMoG is a very small part of what we do at St Christopher’s, what all schools here today do, to give students these opportunities for success. - Simon Watson, Principal
We were delighted to host a celebratory 20th Anniversary edition of the Young Musicians of the Gulf in the Kingdom of Bahrain in January 2019. Participants from schools across the Gulf region competed during four days of musical competition. The standard of performing is consistently very high, with the average age of participants being between 14 and 17 years.
In the lead up to the Grand Final, all the musicians have opportunities to attend Master Classes led by distinguished international adjudicators, who fly into Bahrain earlier in the week. Adjudicators are selected based on musical expertise and experience, and we have been fortunate to welcome world prominent names from the international stage in recent years.
