Quest Private School, located in Janabiya, announced the opening of its doors and will be accepting students from kindergarten through fifth grade as soon as it obtains the requisite approvals from the Ministry of Education. It is set to provide a distinguished educational experience in line with a British style curriculum and within the framework of the Cambridge International System.

The new school aims to include High School education in the future. The school expects to further its mission as a new and powerful addition to the private education sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The Administration staff is led by Principal Mark Barratt, MBA, M.Ed, a passionate educator, who has in excess of 20 years of experience in his native New Zealand. In addition, he has a wealth of experience working in the education sector in several other countries and across the Middle East.

“We are committed to focusing on personalized learning that makes education relevant to the students and encourages them to strive for excellence.” Mr. Barratt said as he laid out the broad scope of the school.

He explained that the school has a strong commitment to the Arabic Language and Culture, acknowledges the value of the Middle Eastern community and will incorporate this ethos into the day-to-day operation of the school.

He added, “We also aim to develop students who have a growth mindset based on resilience, that they will be curiosity-creating active learners who don’t give up.”

With a staff drawn from around the globe, Quest School is dedicated to the ideal of developing global citizens. The expectation is that Quest School students will make a positive contribution to their local communities, one that acknowledges the understanding that we are inter-dependent and rely on each other.

As part of the extensive recruitment process, teachers had to commit to a comprehensive professional development programme aimed at making these a reality within their classrooms.

The Board are continuing to heavily invest in the school site and educational resources to ensure that Quest School is an exceptional educational facility. Quest School is looking forward too many successful years of working with the Bahrain community.
