The Pakistan Urdu School was established in 1956 and is managed by its Board of Trustees. The medium of instruction is English for all classes.

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Pakistan Urdu School was opened in 1956 to give Education to Children of Indo Subcontinent who could not afford to send their children back to Pakistan. Our philosophy of education has always been meeting the needs of the individual child. Children acquire skills and knowledge easily if we can make the surrounding stimulating and purposeful. A pivotal role of education lies in shaping the personality of a child into a healthy mind and happy soul, who is not only equipped with 21st century skills and the aptitude required for academic excellence but helping them face the challenges of life in a balanced and harmonious way. Therefore, we believe is that the system of education should work as a catalyst in making each child a balanced human being having his core strengths embedded in the learning experiences emanating from our rich socio-cultural roots in Bahrain.
“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action." Herbert Spencer”
Our eventual mission is to develop our pupils into “Self Directed Learners”, “Compassionate Leaders”, “Responsible and Useful Citizens”.
In this pursuit of excellence, we appreciate if the parent fraternity continues to support the school in every aspect. we also laud the relentless efforts of our teachers for giving their unsurpassed efforts in bringing out the best in each child.
But we would exhort the students to be always modest, humble and disciplined, while being ready to expand the horizons of their knowledge and skills by dreaming big and working hard.
However over the years, the school has opened its door to all nationalities and the medium of instructions is English. The school strives to give Education, which is value for money.
