BBS was established in 1982 by Dr. May Al Otaibi and Mrs. Kathleen Acher Kaiksow in response to the perceived need for a bilingual national school on the island of Bahrain at that time. In its first year, the school served students from nursery to Kindergarten with only 40 students enrolled.The school witnessed a growth in enrollment every year, which lead to a gradual expansion of curriculum and grade levels. In 1986, to accommodate the increasing enrollment, BBS relocated to its present site at the educational district in Isa Town, which was a land granted by the late Amir of Bahrain His Highness Sheikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa.  Over the years, Bahrain Bayan School continued working on providing highly exceptional education in all of its grades. As evidence of this, the school introduced its first batch of senior students, with college preparatory courses such as the International Baccalaureate program and American Diploma to its high school students. This was a significant mark in the history of Bayan School.
