The British School of Kuwait aims to offer its students a rigorous and rounded education that is relevant to the demands of modern life.
Striving for excellence in all areas of school life is the cornerstone of our educational philosophy.
Evidence for academic excellence is found by comparing the National Curriculum levels of our students with their peers in any other international or British school. Further evidence is found in the outstanding public examination results and in the list of world-famous universities to which our students gain admission.
Evidence for sporting excellence is found in the many, recently awarded, trophies and cups adorning our display cabinets. In recent years, BSK has dominated the finals in competitions organised by KFSAC and ISACK and our participation extends beyond the borders of Kuwait.
Evidence for excellence in the creative arts can be viewed in the award-winning work of our artists, ceramicists, photographers and graphic designers in numerous, recent, national competitions. Our thespians have created, year upon year, sell-out productions, including Blood Brothers, Evita, The Phantom of the Opera, My Fair Lady, Camelot and The King and I. Our musicians are in demand by embassies and events producers throughout Kuwait and overseas. Evidence for excellence in music is to be found in the many international competitions won by our students and the admission of our students into leading conservatoires.
Of course, statistically, all schools will have, from time-to-time, some outstanding students. The philosophy of BSK is to enable all students to be academically outstanding, all students to participate in sports as a life-long mission and all students to be artistically creative by insisting that all students create visual art, perform on stage and play numerous musical instruments.
Our philosophy extends to the provision of excellent extracurricular opportunities for our students. BSK offers the widest range of extracurricular opportunities of any school. From the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award with expeditions to the UAE (bronze), Thailand (silver) and Nepal (gold) to Robotics; from world-class debating to Model United Nations; from LAMDA to ABRSM courses; from horse-riding to scuba-diving; from skiing to martial arts; from Storytime to the Porsche School of Driving… the opportunities seem endless and provide evidence of our commitment to roundedness in the education of our students.
Social awareness through links with the international community is deeply embedded within the ethos of BSK. We benefit hugely from the cultures and experiences of upwards of 70 different nationalities of students. Through the links with the Goethe-Institut in Germany, the British Council, the service work of the International Award in India and many other Asian countries and from the response of our Senior School Council and House Charity initiatives, the evidence for excellence in personal and social education is clear.
Not all students and their families are ready to take advantage of the education on offer at BSK. We have a strict admissions policy that ensures our students are academically capable, highly motivated and well behaved. However, for our students, the environment for learning is designed to meet our aim of rigorous, rounded and relevant education.
