Our Mission, Vision and Aim

Striving for excellence in all areas of school life is the cornerstone of our educational philosophy.

Mission

The mission of The British School of Kuwait (BSK) is to provide its students with the Best of British Education, an education that is rigorous, rounded and relevant.

Values

We are rigorous in setting and ensuring the achievement of high standards in all areas. 

Our hard working students benefit from a rigorous approach to the optimisation of their academic and pastoral progress and are ambitious in the pursuit of the highest standards in their academic attainment and progress, attitudes to learning, personal and social development and extracurricular pursuits. Our dedicated teachers are rigorous in the planning and preparation of their teaching, in the assessment of their students’ work and in their reporting to parents. They are supported in their pursuit of excellence through a robust system of performance management and professional development.

We have long demonstrated a commitment to the breadth and balance that underpins the British education system. With respect to the curriculum, as well as teaching English and Arabic, Islamic Studies, Mathematics, Sciences, Geography, History, Modern Languages and PSHE, BSK also stresses the importance of disciplines such as Music, Drama, Art and Physical Education. Our extensive extracurricular programme also ensures that our students have access to a wide range of enriching opportunities outside of the classroom.

The current and future relevance of the education students receive at BSK is paramount, and our efforts are geared toward ensuring that when they move on, our students are equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence they require to be well-prepared in ever evolving and increasingly competitive environments. The curricular, pastoral and extracurricular programmes on offer in order that they remain current and continue to bring additional value to the experiences enjoyed by students at BSK.
