  • Key stage 1: Years 1-2
  • Key stage 2: Years 3-6

Our pupils follow an exciting international curriculum based on the British model, where class teachers provide the core curriculum and specialist teachers provide ICT, Art and Music. As an Islamic based school, pupils will also study Arabic and Islamic Studies or AFL. Through the daily assembly, they will also have a chance to gather and celebrate Kuwaiti culture through music.

Gearing young minds to develop their literacy and numeracy skills in preparation for Key Stage 2 is fundamental, but it’s not all about work. At IBS, our pupils are encouraged to develop their own personality, to care for and consider others, and we achieve this through play in Music, Art and Drama lessons.

From learning new ball skills on our Physical Education Program to learning to swim in our large pool, fun is an important gateway to good growth. The House system we run endorses and further encourages these values of team work, leadership and healthy competition.

We continue to follow the international curriculum based on the British model, with specialist teachers delivering ICT, Art, Music, Design Technology and French. Pupils will also study Arabic and Islamic Studies, or AFL and French.

This is an important phase for pupils to consolidate and develop their literacy, numeracy and technology skills in preparation for the secondary phase and international examinations. Through play, we further develop social, collaborative and study skills, and encourage independent thinking and learning.

Our Physical Education Program is a platform to shine on the track, indoors with a fun physical activity, or in the pool. And our House system continues to breed confidence and leadership.
