Established in 2005, Gulf British Academy is an independent, co-educational, BSO, BSME and COBIS accredited school.

In August 2020, we opened the doors to our brand new premises. Currently, GBA caters for pupils from Pre-KG to Year 10. We aim to add a new year group every year until we become a fully 3-18 school. This rapid growth provides a wide range of opportunities for professional development and in-house promotion.

Here you will find our current opportunities to join our passionate team. We pride ourselves on welcoming new ideas and value the opinions of all staff on our journey of constant improvement.

New facilities

The new school building provides a modern learning environment, including spacious classrooms, a swimming pool, a large hall/theatre and cinema, indoor and outdoor sport facilities, science labs, design and technology areas, ICT rooms, play areas, and a teaching kitchen.


Kuwait is a small, friendly country providing the ideal base to visit many other countries. It has a large expat community and offers plenty of opportunities for new experiences with lots of sunshine and plenty of beaches.


We offer an excellent package for overseas, qualified employees that includes a generous tax-free salary; annual flight allowance to and from your home country; furnished accommodation or housing allowance and end-of-service indemnity.


We work closely within the national curriculum for England to deliver creative and interactive programmes that develop our academic curriculum, pastoral care system and extra-curricular activities to ensure our children are happy and enjoy coming to school. This includes a house system, as well as Philosophy for Children and Growth Mindset initiatives. We also embrace Islamic culture and values through Arabic Language, Islamic and Quran studies in accordance with the guidelines of the Kuwait Ministry of Education.
