The British School of Kuwait (BSK) is a private, co-educational day school with its campus in the Salwa suburb. BSK currently has over 2500 students on roll, ranging from Reception to Year 13. Also in March 2013, BSK was inspected by a team from Penta International, an inspectorate approved by the UK Department for Education (DfE) to inspect British international schools. British Schools Overseas (BSO) accreditation is a voluntary inspection system, monitored by Ofsted, which informs parents of students in British international schools how well the standards in these schools measure up against the standards that apply to independent schools within Britain.
Welcome to The British School of Kuwait (BSK), an international school offering the National Curriculum of England. BSK is proud of its academic, sporting and creative excellence, and for offering a very wide range of extracurricular activities. BSK was inspected in March 2013 and was granted ‘British School Overseas’ status. Read the inspection report. Our students are encouraged to become active and resilient learners, able to take responsibility for their lives, manage their inevitable stresses and look after their mental and physical well-being.
Enrolling your children at BSK is to prepare them for life. We develop their dispositions and learning-to-learn skills, the better to prepare them for a rapidly changing world with jobs and technologies that haven’t even been invented yet. Our teachers model learning themselves, pursuing further study or designing their own pedagogical action research projects. We practise Assessment for Learning, value Attitudes to Learning and build the future with our Jubilee Awards for Leadership.

VALUE FOR MONEY
By any standards, the fees charged by The British School of Kuwait (BSK) represent exceptional value for money. Whilst there are cheaper schools in Kuwait, none can rival the quality and range of experiences or the achievements of our students.
The current fees for each Year Group are available on request from the Senior Bursar. The British School of Kuwait does not operate a sibling discount scheme.
Whilst many parents settle their children’s school fees in full and in advance, there is a requirement, outlined in your contract, to settle a minimum of 60% of the annual fees by 15 September in any given academic year, with the remaining 40% to be settled by 02 January in the same academic year.
Fees are paid to the Senior Bursar in his office, adjacent to the reception, in the Main Building on the Salwa campus. Payments are accepted in cash or by KNET.
The Senior Bursar’s hours are 07.30-14.00 and 17.00-19.00 on school days.
The Senior Bursar is also available on Saturdays, during term time, from 09.00-13.00.
Outside term time, the Senior Bursar is available on Sundays to Thursdays from 09.00-13.00.
