Parents Association
Parents Association

As a school that was originally founded by a group of enthusiastic expatriate parents back in 1953, it should be of no surprise that we value enormously the importance of the school’s relationship with the parents of our pupils.

Education is very much a three-way interdependent partnership with parents, pupils and the school all inextricably linked in trying to find the best way forwards to ‘unwrap’ each child’s potential.

Parents are very much a component part of The English School and every morning and afternoon many drop-off and pick-up children, staying for a while in the playground to catch up with fellow parents and friends, and taking the opportunity on occasion to touch base with teachers. Fundraising has helped the school to improve its facilities over the years and annual events like the Winter Bazaar and TES Ball are highlights in just about everyone’s social diary. We are very proud of our strong relationship with parents and there is no doubt that this helps add to the family feel and sense of community that makes the school stand out from so many of the other academic institutions in Kuwait. For some, school is the most important place for daily social interaction, especially for parents new to the country, and is a source of huge measures of support as well as both formal and informal information for parents. Indeed, in last February’s parent survey, with almost 200 returns, 97% stated that they would recommend the school to a friend. That is pretty high customer satisfaction! Indeed, at TES we are very proud of our close connection with parents and regularly receive correspondence from former parents saying how much they miss the warmth of relationship they had with the school during the time that their children were with us.
