The Student Representative Council is the main student run organization within Kuwait English School. It is composed from a selection of students throughout the senior school; council members are chosen to represent years 7 to 13. The SRC is run as a democracy and this enables the executive team, consisting of the president, vice presidents, treasurer, secretary and assistant secretary, to be voted in at the beginning of the academic school year.

The main aims of the SRC are to represent student feelings, opinions and interests; encourage students to participate in school activities and to involve students in both social and organisational problem solving in the school.
