“We are committed to providing our children with a challenging education in a safe, nurturing, innovative and inclusive environment. Our Founder’s vision was to provide and make accessible a first class education for everyone in Bahrain. The leadership and management are committed to continue and drive forward with his wish, meeting the new challenges of education but being reachable frontrunners within the education sector within the Kingdom of Bahrain.”
ARKS Diyar is a private school that opened for the academic year 2022/23. Initially it
will offer classes from Nursery to Year 5. The vision is to grow each year until we
offer classes all the way through from Nursery to the graduation of Year 13.
Preschool (Nursery, Reception and Year 1) are committed to offering individual care
and education for children. ARKS Diyar provides a warm, innovating and nurturing
environment in which each child can flourish and reach their full potential. We
endeavour to support every child in our care in order to ensure they achieve their
potential, gain confidence in their own abilities and develop a lifelong love of
At ARKS Diyar we have developed a fun, engaging and stimulating educational
programme, which is inspired by the British Curriculum.
Core subjects are English, Maths, Science and Arabic. We also incorporate lessons in
Innovations, Art, Project Based Learning, Religion, Social Studies and Mindfulness;
with integrated IT and all under the holistic umbrella of Wellbeing.
The lessons incorporate a problem-solving approach which encourages the
development of potential in the children. It promotes self-awareness and the ability
to understand one’s own learning. Children develop curiosity, become open-minded
and are increasingly ready to take on challenges.
Regular and ongoing assessment for learning enables teachers to make professional
judgments about student achievement and to adjust the teaching programme to
support each student’s learning. Regular and specific feedback is provided to develop
the children’s understanding of their next steps in learning.
With an educational history in Bahrain of 25 years’ experience in education (1997),
we are on the only private school in Bahrain with two campuses now (2022) under
Abdulrahman Kanoo’s educational structure..
By the commencement of Primary School (Year 2) the experience and range of play-
based approach, has broadened the children’s knowledge and skills base (including
critical thinking), preparing them for the more formal subject based teaching that
they will encounter during Primary. The senses of creativity and owning one’s own
learning however, are not forgotten with the lessons of Innovation, Project Based
Learning and Mindfulness still being a part of the curriculum.
The use of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum further enhances their knowledge and
skills in Literacy, Science, and Mathematics.
Our expansive use of space is double the amount required per student of which is
required by the Ministry of Education. The light, open classrooms give us a feeling of
light airiness in the classes and is great for creativity, not forgetting the students and
teachers’ mental health.
Lessons are all in English, with the exception of Arabic, Mandarin, Religion and Social
Studies. For children with a non-Bahraini passport, we offer the opportunity to learn
Arabic as a Second Language.
