A very warm welcome to the Primary Department of Gulf English School, Kuwait!

Our whole school community values the contribution every child brings to our school which makes our school a happy and harmonious place to learn and work. 


Learning is our purpose and we offer challenge and learning within a safe school environment where everyone is considerate and respectful of each other. We make the learning experience explicit with a level of challenge which encourages our pupils to develop resilience, independence and persistence so that our children are encouraged to explore ideas and justify their thinking.

We believe that education is about inspiring young children to open their minds to a lifetime of learning.

We are a large school with traditional values and we believe that children learn better when they enjoy lessons and are fully immersed in their lessons. What excites and engages children most is top quality teaching, which challenges them.

Beginning in Foundation through play based on self-initiated activities to creative research projects in Year 6, we seek to instil independence from an early age helping children to develop the skills and resilience needed in an ever changing world. We seek to teach children how to deal not only with the academics, but also to deal with frustrations, thus helping your child to become resilient in all aspects of educational challenges.

Whilst it is essential for girls and boys to be good at English and Math, they will also need to be flexible and able to work confidently with changing Technology. Children require excellent communication skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. As a school, and by building positive relationships with parents, we strive to help all of our pupils to reach their potential, and do so with the very highest aims and standards at the heart of all we do.

Success requires vision, determination, and teamwork. Our teachers are determined to get the right balance between traditional values with the demands of a rapidly changing world.

I look forward to welcoming you to Gulf English School Primary Department.
