from the Head of School
Welcome to British School Salalah. I am proud to lead our warm, friendly and vibrant school community where kindness is valued, students are enthusiastic to learn and parents are encouraged to work in close partnership.
At BSS we value children’s happiness and emotional wellbeing above all else. We believe children learn best when they feel secure, understood, and encouraged as individuals. This is the starting point for successful learning. We invest time in creating a personal relationship with all our families to ensure the learning for your child is as meaningful as possible. We aspire to develop our children to be independent and confident learners, who are ready, prepared and excited to embrace the world and responsibly play their part in its future.
Our Royal Charter has enabled us to successfully deliver a British education for over 50 years.
The school has a dedicated team of passionate and kind hearted staff who provide our children with a huge range of opportunities, carefully designed to raise standards, spark their interests and enthusiasm, inspire them, and enable them to achieve and be ambitious for their futures. BSS is a place where everyone learns, where everyone is challenged and everyone is inspired.
Our caring BSS family would be delighted to meet you, we look forward to welcoming you soon.
First-rate teaching and learning
Diverse enrichment programme
Excellent pastoral care
Standards of attainment are high in both the Primary and Senior school. BSS’s growing international reputation for excellence and innovation helps us to attract, retain and develop high quality UK trained teachers who are proud to work with our engaged, motivated and high achieving pupils.
To prepare our pupils for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead we value learning that focuses on high performance in public examinations, healthy living and well-being, character development and global citizenship. We call this approach the BSS Learning Ethos and it underpins learning and teaching throughout our school.
Our Learning Ethos:
- Secure individuals – be safe
- Resourceful learners – be ready
- Respectful contributors – be respectful
Beyond the classroom, life at British School Salalah is exciting and fulfilling. Our many and varied enrichment programme offers children the chance to further their interests and gain confidence in where their passions lie. We believe strongly in education outside the classroom and in ensuring that we educate the hearts of our students and not just their minds.
To this end, pupils have the opportunity to pursue and explore their individual talents and interests through a wide range of recreational sports and creative arts activities.
Our first priority is to ensure that your child is a safe, happy and confident learner. All our staff are trained to offer care and support to our pupils on a daily basis.
