Early years Foundation Stage

In the Foundation Stage, students learn through play, and follow an adapted version of the UK Early Years Foundation Stage  framework. All students also take Arabic and Islamic Studies lessons as a part of their curriculum.

The aim of the Kindergarten and Foundation  is to help every child achieve the five learning outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being.

Children learn in an environment that invites and encourages their curiosity and questions, and helps them learn how to begin to express themselves. They are provided with a variety of stimulating activities by their class teacher each day, each of which is designed to develop their skill levels. Students will begin to receive more formal teaching towards the end of reception, but our policy is to not force students into formal learning until they are ready to do so


At the heart of the Primary department lies a learning community that embraces opportunity and allows every child to reach their full potential. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open minded and independent individuals, who respect themselves and others in our school, as well as in our community and the wider world. Our aim is to provide an environment within which our students can grow in confidence as they prepare for their transition to Secondary School. The Primary School follows the National Curriculum and ensure all pupils have access to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum, differentiated to…

Many of our former students or alumni are now successful women, playing important roles in family and business life within Kuwait. Our alumni inspire our current students, help them to feel pride in their school and are an important part of our school’s history.
