Cambridge English School Kuwait
KG - IGSCE (Year 11)
Most children are dropped off by their parents. The car parking is terrible. There are school buses. They are in an awful condition and the drivers are not safe.
There is a cold swimming pool but it is not regularly used. My daughter did swimming during PE 4 times all year. The classrooms are very small and the resources are not good. The kids copy books fall apart very quickly and the teachers make us buy special resources like magnets, clocks, whiteboards. Management do not seem very good. They shout at parents and children and even at teachers.
It is meant to be the British curriculum but I see no evidence of that. The children at this school are mostly Egyptian and Kuwaiti and can barely speak English. My daughter started in Year 4 and her classmates barely know how to read. The teacher cannot teach the Year 4 curriculum where the majority of students are at a lower level.
There are two parent teacher interviews each year on a Saturday. You can make special appointments through the reception ladies but there's no guarantee the teacher will turn up.
Do not enrol your child at this school. They will not learn anything apart from bad manners, Arabic swear words and behaviour that's fitting to a zoo. From what I can tell, the teachers try their best to control the class but management refuses to remove difficult students or I guess punish them effectively. It really struck me as unnecessary when the Australian head of primary shouted at another parent in the lobby about the parent not following the qu'ran. Who is he to say that? I kept wanting to measure up the best teacher for her but every year the teachers changed. She's at Kuwait English School now, which is a better school. British School of Kuwait and The English School also seem much better choices.
