GCE, IGCSE exams.
1700 students, 3-18 yrs.

The Gulf English School is a well-established and expanding international school for the children of the large expatriate community in Kuwait and an increasing number of Kuwaiti children. It is located in purpose-built, landscaped premises in Rumaithiya, a spacious suburb of Kuwait City. The school's 1,735 pupils follow a modified English National Curriculum (Arabic and Islamic Studies are included in the core curriculum) from Kindergarten to Key Stage 1 through to university entrance. A distinctive feature is an accelerated IGCSE programme for gifted and talented children leading to IGCSE examinations in Year 10 and 'AS'/'A' Levels (science subjects, computer studies, English, business studies, maths, accounting, Arabic and Art ) in Years 11 and 12. The Learning Support Department offers differentiated learning, according to need, for students with ESL or special learning difficulties. A full programme of daily extra curricular activities includes ice-skating, karate and many other sports, instrumental lessons with various ensembles and choirs, chess and fine arts. Students elect their representatives on to a Student Council which organizes social and other activities at the school.

Approximately 60% of students at Gulf English School are Kuwaiti nationals, 25% Egyptian and about 30 different nationalities make up the remaining 15%. Almost all students go on to tertiary education either in Kuwait, Egypt, Lebanon, UK, US, Canada or elsewhere.

The vast majority of teachers at Gulf English School are recruited in London. They are graduate teachers with experience of successful teaching in the UK. Highly qualified teachers of Arabic and Islamic Studies are recruited locally. In an atmosphere of high expectations, teachers employ a wide range of teaching strategies and resources. Teachers meet regularly in small teams for planning, progress monitoring and discussion of curriculum delivery. The school operates a teacher appraisal system with a well-structured staff development programme.

Further information about the Gulf English School can be obtained from the school’s website. Application details, prospectus and video are available from the Director of Educational Services.
