WELCOME FROM THE SCHOOL DIRECTOR
Welcome to Gulf English School, Kuwait. We are a Primary and Secondary school with a long and proud tradition of serving the educational needs of our community. We are celebrating our 42nd year Anniversary in 2022 and we will continue to strive for another 42 years and more.
At GES we place great emphasis on the academic, physical and social growth of each individual student. As a school community we continue to nurture the uniqueness of our students and we strive to educate each young person to reach their potential and enable them to be the best that they can be.
Graeme Mark Garrett
It is my honour and privilege to be the Director of such a distinguished school and one steeped with such a rich history. The Gulf English School is undoubtedly a jewel of British Education with very high academic standards and a passion for learning. The school has well over one thousand pupils, and the competitive entry for places in many year groups reflects its standing in Kuwait.
The pages of our website will hopefully furnish you with some insight into our school and its history, although this is no substitute for a personal visit and first-hand experience of the school, which can be arranged in advance, owing to Covid restrictions.
As per the Mission Statement (found on the Website) the school pursues high standards in education and encourages its students to be independent learners, within a moral framework. The modern student not only requires good academic skills, they need to be open-minded, able to analyse, think critically, question, be flexible and prepared for the challenges they will face in and beyond education.
Today’s world is a dynamic place with a fast pace of change and students need to be able to adapt their talents and skills to accommodate this change. As educators, our duty is to ensure that the students in our care are better educated than previous generations and are able and committed to making a significant contribution to the world in which they live.
The school has an impressive record of examination success when compared with standards locally and globally. This success secures places for our students for a wide range of courses and career paths at the very best universities locally and beyond.
Should you require more information about the Gulf English School please feel free to contact us and we will endeavour to assist.
With my very best wishes,
School Director GES
