About us

Welcome to British School Dhahran (BSD), one of five schools that comprises the International Schools Group (ISG) in Saudi Arabia. The school accommodates pupils from Foundation 1 to Year 13 and currently has a student body of approximately 700 pupils, representing over 60 different nationalities. 

With an emphasis on high achievement, our academic results compare favourably with the very best national curriculum schools in the U.K. and across the world. We are proud of our students’ ability to work hard, establish culturally sensitive relationships with those around them, and to seek new skills and knowledge.

The school is accredited by the British Schools Overseas (BSO), British Schools in the Middle East (BSME) and Middle States Association for Colleges and Schools (MSA).
