Teacher assessment and target setting are used extensively throughout the School. All textbooks and reading schemes are brought from the UK. Specialist teachers are employed to teach PE, ICT, SEN Arabic and Islamic Studies. Music is not included in the curriculum and boys and girls are taught in separate classes in Years 7 to 11.
Standards: English is the primary mode of instruction in all classes other than Arabic and Islamic Studies. Most students have English as a second language Arabic being the predominant first language for most students.
Class sizes: Maximum 32 students per class. In the upper school typical class size is around 25 students who are pleasant, well mannered, motivated and well supported by their Parents in their learning.
Staffing: The school has in total 105 teaching staff most hold degrees and possess recognized teaching certificates. Staff are extremely hard-working, dedicated to the school and students. All staff are expected to contribute to after school extra-curricular activities, clubs and academic support classes.
Buildings: These are purpose designed with 2 new Science Labs, a new Learning Centre and an on-site clinic with a fully qualified nurse. Foundation children have their own building and specialised play area.
Salary: The school has its own salary scale with salary offers made by the Personnel department based on years of experience and qualifications. Salaries are paid monthly gross- there is no deduction of income tax, health insurance , and all accommodation utilities are paid. Staff in Kuwait generally find they have sufficient disposable income at the end of each month to save. In addition to the salary there is an end of service gratuity paid at a rate of 2 weeks salary per full year of service. Responsibility allowance s are paid for those who take up positions of responsibility. There is no pension contribution.

Flights: an annual return flight to your home country is provided for the duration of the term of service except at contract termination where a one-way flight ticket is provided.
Health insurance: Local health facilities are generally adequate and most staff find them to be sufficient for their needs. It is possible for teachers to take out their own private health insurance but most find government facilities acceptable.
Living Conditions: Kuwait is a family friendly, pleasant, safe and easy place to live. English is widely spoken and the cost of living is moderate. Cars are relatively cheap and petrol is very reasonably priced. There are many multi- national chain stores throughout the country with all kinds of supermarkets and household stores represented. There are local English language newspapers available. Most teachers choose to rent satellite TV.
