About Gulf British Academy

"Grow, Build, Achieve - Uniting the best of British education with the best of Kuwaiti culture"

Established in 2005, Gulf British Academy is an independent, co-educational, BSO, BSME and COBIS accredited school.

In August 2020, we opened the doors to our brand new premises. Currently, GBA caters for pupils from Pre-KG to Year 8. We aim to add a new year group every year until we become a fully 3-18 school. This rapid growth provides a wide range of opportunities for professional development and in-house promotion.

We are currently seeking qualified, proactive primary teachers to join our passionate team. We pride ourselves on welcoming new ideas and value the opinions of all staff on our journey of constant improvement.

New facilities

The new school building provides a modern learning environment, including spacious classrooms, a swimming pool, a large hall/theatre and cinema, sport areas (basketball, football, tennis), science labs, design and technology areas, ICT rooms, play areas, and a teaching kitchen.


Kuwait is a small, friendly country providing the ideal base to visit many other countries. It has a large expat community and offers plenty of opportunities for new experiences with lots of sunshine and plenty of beaches.


We offer an excellent package for overseas, qualified employees that includes a generous tax-free salary; annual flight allowance to and from your home country; furnished accommodation or housing allowance; end-of-service indemnity; and discounted tuition fees for employees bringing their children.


We work closely within the national curriculum for England to deliver creative and interactive programmes that develop our academic curriculum, pastoral care system and extra-curricular activities to ensure our children are happy and enjoy coming to school. This includes a house system, as well as Philosophy for Children and Growth Mindset initiatives. We also embrace Islamic culture and values through Arabic Language, Islamic and Quran studies in accordance with the guidelines of the Kuwait Ministry of Education.

British values

We expect all members of our staff to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Join us!

If you’re passionate about helping pupils succeed, share our values and meet our requirements we would love to hear from you.
