This review, that was says: "Update on June 14, 2015" is totally totally inaccurate! Doctor Christopher Ray left BSAK over a year ago.

The school is now run by Elaine Rawlings whose previous management experience was head of year 8 containing 70 kids in a UK independent school.

A new Head Teacher has been appointed from Sept 2016, someone that has worked in the middle east for 17 years very successfully in Doha. His appointment will bring about some big changes in the school.

Thank you anon. We have updated the information in the review.

Note: We had to edit the comment. Very interesting information, but we would need a lot of it verified!

Much as I would like to appreciate the school; I would like to comment that the school is very biased with the admissions application system. They don't entertain non-siblings or kids other than British expats.

Up until last year, they would clearly tell you on the phone that your child stood no chance unless he/she was a sibling of an existing student or a British passport holder.

Personal experience with admissions - very negative.

But...38% of the students are not British citizens. Where did they come from if the school does not admit British citizens? It sounds like sour grapes from your end.
