Leadership Team

Carol Pedersen

Executive Principal

Carol Pedersen originates from the UK and has been actively involved in various management positions in international schools around the world. Her career has involved creating and developing new International Schools over the past twenty years around the globe. She has been involved in developing new schools, IB candidate schools in Europe, UK , the Middle East, China, Singapore  and now here in Bahrain.

Carol believes that today’s world of ultimate competition poses the greatest challenges for finding and securing a prosperous future. A child is our biggest investment and a sound and excellent education starting at the earliest stage is the key to a child’s progress, development and success. Striking the balance between the importance of play and holistic and grounded education in core and specialist subjects is imperative for our youngest students attending Eton House Bahrain.

Carol believes in promoting international awareness in children, with emphasis on skills, knowledge and attitudes, that are required to participate in an increasingly globally society. She believes Eton House has a strong sense of community in the values we celebrate, in our commitment in realizing the potential of our children, and in providing a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, physical, aspects of our children’s lives. Our children come from many cultural backgrounds, forming a happy, inclusive international school community.

Our British curriculum using IB Framework approach is designed to welcome both local and international children to discover the joy of learning and playing together. Learning a second language with children from other cultures opens a world of other horizons for our students, enabling them to see the world through eyes other than their own. Carol is passionate about education and preparing students in becoming lifelong learners.

Julia Knight

Vice Principal

I have been in education since 2004. My specialism is English Literature which I have taught from Year 5 up to Sixth Form. I have held a broad spectrum of roles within schools from leading a successful English department to Assistant Head in charge of Lower School. I have worked in London, Bangkok and have been happily settled in Bahrain since 2016. I am married with two boys aged 9 and 5.

My firm belief is in happy children- children thrive academically in a creative and supportive environment that nurtures the whole child which is the philosophy of Eton House.

I am excited to join a team of dedicated and hardworking professionals that aims to transform the education experience in Bahrain with the island’s first fully International Baccalaureate all-through school. I am looking forward to welcoming the community to Eton House, Bahrain and meeting parents and students alike.
