Principal’s Message

Welcome to The English Academy website. We hope that you will find our website both informative and instructive in its content. Since its foundation in 1993, The English Academy has continually and successfully striven to provide a British education to both the local and international community in Kuwait.

At TEA we enjoy the luxury of spacious classrooms allowing teachers to provide for your children’s needs in a safe and secure learning environment. We aim to deliver a curriculum that is respected throughout the world whilst providing students with numerous opportunities to gain experiences and responsibilities that will prepare them for life beyond school.

We teach the National Curriculum of England and Wales, adapted as appropriate to our students’ needs and experience. In the primary department, National Curriculum Literacy and Numeracy strategies are adopted and levels are used to support our assessment policies through all Key Stages. Furthermore, Year 10 and 11 students study for examinations in IGCSE and GCSE and on completion may enter the sixth form to study AS and A Levels respectively.

TEA aims to provide a learning experience that will enable us to help students reach their potential academically, socially and physically. In modern society change is perhaps one of the few certainties there is and, with this in mind, we aim to prepare our students for a life in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive society. Young people at TEA are encouraged to become leaders within their community. The school stresses the importance of integrity, respect for others and the right of every child to a learning environment absent of hindrance and disturbance. Students are encouraged to become independent learners while an emphasis is placed on the importance of local traditions and values; the vision adopted at TEA is a globally connected one with a great deal of local relevance.

May I encourage you to explore our website and to discover for yourself the unique possibilities offered by the exciting and educationally fulfilling experience that is The English Academy.
