About Gulf British Academy (GBA)

Gulf British Academy (GBA) opened its doors in September 2005 and quickly established itself as one of Kuwait’s top independent co-educational schools for pupils from Pre-KG to Year 6. GBA is a friendly school where all children are valued as individuals and parents welcomed as partners in their child’s education.

We place emphasis on academic success and embrace Islamic culture and values while also encouraging pupils to take part in as many different school activities as possible.

Gulf British Academy strives to inspire and empower our pupils to think creatively and critically, pursue lifelong learning, and contribute positively to their local and global community. We also understand that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions parents make for their child, so we want you to feel confident that you have made an informed choice.

I've been in this school for 7 years (reception to grade 6) and British schools might be difficult, but it helps your mind all the subjects I've learned like Maths,comprehension,grammar,geography,s.studies,science and more and I've learned the most in my life in this school,it's just an awesome school to learn .And I believe this is a 4.5-5 star school And I will miss this school

My son is in reception and it is his first year in school. His teacher is good and nice and he is very happy. On the other hand, I am not happy at all and I'm seriously thinking about transferring him as soon as possible. The general staff are the worst sooooo rude, disrespectful, and racist. Just because we are Kuwaitis they treat us with disrespect and if we are waiting in line the priority is always for the parents of a certain nationality. When I told one of the staff that I came first they laughed at me like I'm being silly (not the first time). The majority of parents are rude and it is hard to communicate with them. It is horrible! like a nightmare.
