GES opened its doors in 1980 in a villa and expanded into larger premises in the leafy suburb of Salwa, moving to a larger campus in Rumaithiya once it had outgrown the premises.

GES is now located in Salmiya in the heart of the main commercial area in Kuwait. The premises are purpose built and the school moved into the building in August 2005. 

The school is now owned by TES and GES has an American Sister school ATIS in Sabah Al Salem. 

The company places great emphasis on its careful and rigorous recruitment and selection of educational administrators and teachers, and considers the quality, experience and excellent qualifications of staff to be its greatest asset. Arabic staff are recruited mainly from Egypt and Syria, and English speaking staff primarily from the United Kingdom and Ireland. 

TES is proud to be a Kuwaiti company and GES takes pride in the fact that it remained open and carried on as normal throughout the period of the Iraqi invasion in March/April 2003. 

GES is celebrating 35 years this academic year.
