Pakistan Urdu School (PUS; Urdu: پاکستان اردو اسکول بحرین‎) is a private school in Isa Town, Bahrain and was founded in 1956[1] by Bahraini and Pakistani trustees as an alternative English medium school for the Pakistani community in Bahrain. The majority of students are Pakistani nationals.

History

Pakistan Urdu School was established in March 1956 by a group of overseas Pakistanis who lived in Bahrain at the time. This included Mr. Ashraf S. Mohammadi, Mrs. Saleha Raheem, Mr. Abdul Rasool Malik, Mr. Sayed Akber Ali and Dr. Mehitapwala. The school, which is managed by a board of trustees, prepares students for secondary and higher secondary examinations in arts, science and commerce. The present strength of the school is about 230 staff members catering to the educational needs of about 2,000 students from all nationalities. The medium of instruction is English. The school has separate classes for boys and girls. The school is affiliated with the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Islamabad, Pakistan. In the past the school has invested in new buildings and moved the primary school from Manama to Isa town. More recently, it has undergone a major metamorphosis. New school canteens have been constructed, the play area was tarmacked and a proper area for school buses to arrive and safely transport the students was built. The school has also renovated the primary school classrooms, providing them with new activity and audio visual rooms. The school has set up new computer laboratories for the girls’ primary section and middle school. The present strength of the school is over 2000 students and 200 staff members. It has 64% Pakistani nationals, 30% Bahrainis and 6% students of other nationalities (namely Malaysian, Jordanian, Egyptian and Sri Lankan).
