The British School of Kuwait (BSK) was awarded the highest possible ranking of ‘outstanding” placing it amongst the best schools, not only in Kuwait, but in the world in its most recent inspection in March 2016. In 2019, BSK will once again undergo inspection by the UK’s Department of Education and planning for this is already in full swing.
A group of 25 teachers at The British School of Kuwait recently took part in a three day course to become internal school inspectors. The course was led by John Cranfield who is a lead inspector for PENTA International, one of the leading independent providers of educational training, consultancy and inspection services in the UK. The course covered the key skills required to be a successful inspector across all phases of the school from Reception to Year 13. The main purpose of the course was to help develop teaching and learning within BSK thus improving the quality of education being offered. All teachers passed the exam at the end of the course and now will begin to inspect colleagues within the school.
This investment in Continuous Professional Development demonstrates the commitment of the management of the school in ensuring that BSK’s mission to provide the people of Kuwait with a world class school is a never-ending process.
