The school is located next to the US Consulate and occupies a well-resourced 40-acre campus shared with two American schools. Each school operates independently and Dhahran British Grammar teaches according to the precepts of the National Curriculum.
The school accommodates pupils from Pre-Reception to Year 11 and currently has a school population of 390 pupils. The school is in its 7th year of (I)GCSE examinations and is an accredited examination centre for Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel.
National tests are taken at the end of Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 and all school results are made public to the parents and broader community. The school population is predominantly British and pupils are taught by suitably qualified and experienced staff who themselves are largely British in origin.
The school has a relatively high percentage of sponsored teachers at a figure of 66% with 34% of teachers locally employed. This is to ensure the continuity and stability of the teaching programme and enables a large number of specialist subjects to be taught across the school.
