A very warm welcome to all parents and students. I hope you had a fantastic summer and a chance to spend quality time with your loved ones. On behalf of the GU staff, I would like to wish you and your children many successes and best of luck in the academic year 2019-2020

  • External Examinations 

14 senior students sat their external IGCSE/GCSE exams in May/June 2019. Special congratulations to Abdul Jalil who obtained excellent results: A in History and ICT and C in Biology, Physics and Chemistry. My sincere thanks to senior teachers, Miss Dominique, Mrs. Diana and Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Hardy who have worked very hard to prepare our students. 

  • 2019-2020 – Year of Nature and 40th Anniversary of KES 

This year is dedicated to Nature; we will focus on how people can help to preserve wildlife and maintain delicate balance existing in the natural environment  

We will also introduce and implement a whole school Values approach to education. Our first value – RESPECT – links well to the theme of Nature. 

Finally, in 2019-2020 Kuwait English School celebrates its 40th Anniversary. Many events are planned to commemorate this anniversary and you shall receive full information shortly 

  • New Parents Welcome Meeting – Wednesday 11th September at 5.30 pm 

This year we will hold an introductory meeting for all new parents. Parents were already informed and invited to attend the meeting via email. Form tutors/class teachers must double-check with students/parents so we can confirm seat numbers. 

  • Timetable 

Draft timetables are ready and will be confirmed by Thursday 12th September

General access to the school PE facilities is limited at the moment. All basement, including swimming pool area is under refurbishment. This, of course, will temporarily affect our timetable. Please note that some PE classes may have to be taken in the unit whilst there will be no swimming until further notice.

  • School uniform 
  • Some students may not be wearing the correct school uniform in the first week. We usually allow a couple of days so everyone has time to complete all items, however, please try to ensure your child has a required school uniform by Monday 9th September.
  • Parental Workshops in Term 1
  • These will be sent to all parents and students by email on Thursday 5th September.  Please send all required permission forms, information form and a general agreement page signed to school by Thursday 12th September.
