The English School, Kuwait founded in 1953 under the auspices of the British Embassy, is the longest established school in Kuwait catering for the expatriate community. The school operates as a not-for-profit, private co-educational establishment providing the highest standards in education for children of Pre-Kindergarten to Middle/Preparatory School age. The school is registered with the United Kingdom Department for Education and Skills (DfES No. 703 6052) and the Headmaster is a Member of the Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools. The roll is predominantly British, as are the resources and texts. With the exception of foreign language teachers, all teaching staff are British and qualified in the United Kingdom. The number of pupils in the school continues to increase although the average class size remains around 20.

The curriculum at the English School, Kuwait is British, contemporary and aiming for the best of traditional standards being sought within a broad-based structure. Class teachers are supported by specialist subject teachers in English, maths, science, art, information technology, music, French, Arabic, library and PE and games. Music is taught to all ages and French is introduced from Year 3. The Foundation Stage and National Curriculum for England and Wales are used as the core for the curriculum followed by the school. Formal End-of-Key Stage assessment of ability takes place in Years 2 and 6.

The English School, Kuwait seeks to provide a caring learning environment within which the children will be stimulated to develop their individual capacity for achievement to its fullest potential. Each individual is directed towards self-discipline and respect for himself/herself and for others. Strong emphasis is placed on academic study, together with a wide range of non-academic activities to provide a balance, within the stimulating and friendly family orientated school. The aim is to ensure that, by achieving standards equivalent to those of competitive private and State schools in Britain, pupils are well prepared for the subsequent stages of their academic development whether in Britain, Kuwait or elsewhere in the world and that they will integrate socially with ease in their new environment.
