The British School of Kuwait (BSK) traces its origins to 1978 when Mme Vera and Mr Sadiq Al-Mutawa established a small kindergarten which became known as The Sunshine School. 

Front of school

Steady growth took place through the 1980s and, having recovered from the ravages of the 1990 invasion of Kuwait, by 1992 the school accommodated 550 Kindergarten and Primary age students. The decision having been made to serve the community at both Primary and Secondary levels, a move to the present site in Salwa took place and in September 1993, newly renamed, The British School of Kuwait opened to 900 students.

BSK Today

BSK currently provides a quality British curriculum education to students from Reception to Year 13. Our students come from more than 70 countries and follow the National Curriculum of England through to GCSE, IGCSE, AS and A Level qualifications. The school provides a structured, caring and happy environment for learning with excellent resourcing and a qualified, highly-trained and well-motivated staff.
