Transfer Certificate Guidelines

In order for us to comply with the Ministry of Education, Bahrain regulations, and for us to register your child with MOE, it is imperative that we receive a Transfer Certificate from your child’s previous school when joining after May. Students joining KG 1, KG 2 or Grade 1 at the start of the Academic year (April) do not require a Transfer Certificate.

  1. This Transfer Certificate must be on official school letterhead.
  2. The form needs to be completed on pupil’s last day of attendance.
  3. This form must be signed by the Principal and show an official school stamp.
  4. The original certificate must be presented on the first day of school.

The Transfer Certificate validity is only for one month. Hence, the child should be enrolled in school within a month of the date of issue of the Transfer Certificate.
