The English School Fahaheel: 45 years of excellence in education

Article - October 24, 2013
The oldest school providing English curriculum education in Kuwait is The English School Fahaheel (ESF), established in 1968 by a group of expatriate parents under the guidance of the incumbent British Consul
Over the years, ESF has maintained its position as one of the country’s top schools, thanks to its emphasis on high academic standards which has in turn led to consistently excellent exam results.
Indeed, Owner and Chairman Ibrahim Shuhaiber has been saluted by the British Business Forum in Kuwait with an Award of Merit for his efforts in upholding excellence in British education.
“I am extremely proud to have supported the cause of British education in Kuwait for 45 years,” he says. “I always feel so very proud when school alumni return to tell us of their experiences since leaving the school and the success of their careers.”
Educating pupils from the age of 3 and a half to 18 and a half (Kindergarten to Year 13), ESF fosters independence and a well-rounded education for mind and body. It is a recognised examination centre for Cambridge University and a member of the Council and International School (CIS), with state-of-the-art facilities that include a modern theatre, a large heated indoor swimming pool, computer centres, WiFi throughout the campus, four music centres, four science labs and two libraries, among others.
Mr Shuhaiber attributes ESF’s continued success to the high standard of teachers it has been able to recruit from the UK and to the school’s overall understanding of Kuwaiti culture and traditions. Excellent academic results and strong links with the community also contribute to sustaining ESF’s popularity.
