About Kuwait International English School

A huge welcome to Kuwait International English School or KIES. 

Although KIES has been operating for over 25 years, there has been a massive transformation both in the school building and facilities and with the school ethos.

We follow the English National Curriculum and have modified themes, which better suit our students, especially in Primary where we utilize a teacher-designed topic-based approach to learning. Secondary students aim towards IGCSE, As and A level. We also have an outstanding KG/Reception.

We are a friendly, exciting school, which fosters motivational and out-of-the-box thinking and believes in actively promoting confidence, innovation and teamwork.

Our new facilities, swimming pool, theatre, science labs, sports hall, fitness rooms and squash courts join our newly renovated Main building to give opportunity for all students to achieve their potential as well as their dreams.

We are a successfully competitive school and are looking to extend our team base so as to experience not only Local, but Middle East and European competition.

OfSted has described the school as …….’Good with many Outstanding elements’. We are currently working towards BSO after our last very successful OfSted inspection.

We, as a staff, never rest on our Laurels. We are constantly looking to improve, build and innovate but also believe in Common sense and not re-inventing the wheel!

Everyone at KIES is important and all have a role to play and input into everything we do.

Our facilities include:

Theatre, 4 new science Labs, 4 Computer suites, 4 Art/DT rooms, 2 Music rooms, Keyboard Lab, Graphic design department, 3 Business enterprise shops, Uniform Shop, 2 Mosques, Cookery School, Fitness rooms, Cafeteria, Large Multipurpose Gym, Swimming Pool, All classrooms have Smart Projector and computers connected to a central server.

KIES is situated in the district of Hawally not far from Kuwait City and with the International British School (Fahaheel) is part of Al Rayan Holding Company who, since 2007 very successfully, manage and own 9 different International and Arabic Schools in Kuwait.
