Our daughter was born in Kuwait and started education here. The curriculum is as per UK - the standard of teaching is pretty good, and importantly the standard of child and parent is also good.
There are no programs I know of for repatriation.
the kids love the school - as do the parents and it is a good social hub.

There is a teacher parent association - although there are no forums for parents with the governors - which is somewhat odd.

It is the best school in Kuwait for British kids aged 3-11. Many parents then consider moving their kids to Kuwait English School for their Secondary education.
