I am very pleased to be able to welcome you all to Kuwait National English School (KNES) website. I hope that whether you are an existing student, parent, member of staff or whether you just wish to find out more about the school, that you find the website interesting and informative. We are extremely proud of the educational programme KNES offers and the great pace of development which has occurred since its founding in Surrat. A sign of this progress is that KNES has been accredited by: The Council of International Schools (CIS), New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME). KNES combines a demanding British academic curriculum with an active and engaging programme of sports, cultural and performing arts activities. Our students consistently perform well in such challenging programmes as the Advanced Level and Advanced Subsidiary examinations from Edexcel (UK, London Board) and the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE, Cambridge, UK). Our mission is to provide an education for citizens of a better world in the global community. KNES is committed to providing a high quality British secondary education in English that challenges students to realize their full potential in a caring and supportive environment. On a personal note, I believe one of the most striking features of the KNES community is its friendliness, family atmosphere and the wonderful welcome we extend to new students and parents. I encourage you to visit us and to see first-hand our facilities and meet our teaching staff and to experience the atmosphere at the school.
