Our School Day

Our school days are packed with activity.

Morning Times

Supervised access to the campus is available to students of all year groups from 06.45 onwards.

All students should be in school by 07.30.

At 07.32 a bell sounds to invite students from Year 1-13 to move to their line-up position, ready for the National Anthem.

All Lower Phase students line up in Wembley. Junior Phase students line up in the Outer Courtyard and Middle Phase students in the Inner Courtyard. Upper Department and Sixth Form students line up in Marble Arch.

At 07.35 a second bell sounds and all students respond to a customary chant offering best wishes to the people of Kuwait, the ruling family and the people of Arabia. The chant is followed by the singing of the Kuwait National Anthem.

Following the National Anthem, students move to their tutor rooms for Morning Tutor Time.

Lessons and Break Times

Separate timetables are in operation in the Primary and Secondary sections of the school, details of which can be found in the student planner documents held in the Parents Essentials area of the website.

Afternoon Times

Students who travel by school bus move directly to their buses upon the conclusion of their final lesson of the day, with younger students being escorted and older students doing so independently.

For students who do not travel by school bus, parents can access the campus from 14.30 onwards to collect their children at the end of the school day.

All Lower Phase students and their siblings in Junior, Middle, Upper and Sixth Form that do not take school buses are to be collected from Wembley.

Any students who have not been collected by 15.00 move to the Gate G collection point.

Afternoon Activities

Those students not attending afterschool activities are required to leave the school premises by 14.45.

Those students who are involved in afterschool activities are collected from Gate G.
