Our History

Al-Bassam Schools were founded in 2001 as the first step as a school for girls and boys consisting of the kindergarten stage and primary stage. In 2002, the Boys School was completed in a separate building for the primary stage. The total number of students was 354 in both Schools. With the expansion in the stages in 2010, Boys Campus was founded to include the three stages (primary, intermediate, secondary) and it was completed in 2011 to be a campus for all stages for boys in 2013. The first campus is entirely for girls. In 2015, the International School was founded and completed in 2016 with 63 male and female students in kindergarten. Currently, the total number is 163 male and female students from Kindergarten to grade 3. In general, school enrollment rates achieved rapid leaps as the total number of students in 19/2020 is 2048 male and female students compared to 354 Male and female students when founded with an increase of about 600%.

Currently, there are now 3 separate campuses, one for girls, one for boys, and the third one is for the international school. The different curricula in the three campuses include the Saudi national program, the British program (IGCSE), and the International Baccalaureate program (IB). We ensure that it is managed well in its broad lines to achieve our guiding statements on the three campuses.

Word from the Educational Board Chairman

Praise be to Allah, the God of the worlds, and blessings and peace be upon the trustworthy guide, the best of educators, and the role model for the righteous...

Dear parents,

The name of Al-Bassam Schools has been associated for over twenty years with those seeking competitive programs and quality standards in education, especially among the elite members of society aspiring for a bright future for their children.
Our focus is on making the educational process enjoyable and innovative, teaching our children to rely on themselves and develop a strong Muslim character capable of problem-solving, taking responsibility, and facing challenges with confidence.

The best age to start this policy is early childhood, as our multi-stage schools start from nurser,preschool, and then kindergarten, and so on until grade 12 for both boys and girls. We serve the children of those keen on quality education from citizens and residents, taking into consideration the importance of not abandoning our Islamic identity and authentic heritage in reaching our set goals.
I hope you take the time to visit our website to learn more about us, as we eagerly await your visit to learn more about the programs we offer.

Dr. Youssef Al-Bassam
Chairman of the Educational Board
