EPG follows the English Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, which ensures each child has the opportunity to interact in positive relationships and enabling environments.
EPG offers excellent Primary School education across multiple campus’ (Salwa, Salmiya and Sabah Al Salem). An enhanced English National Curriculum, both balanced and broad-based, is offered for Key Stage 1 (5-7 year-olds) and Key Stage 2 students (7-11 year-olds). EPG curriculums have been carefully tailored to adapt to local customs and English content is delivered alongside excellent Arabic language content, aligned with the Ministry of Education Arabic and Islamic Curriculum. EPG schools are proud to be fully accredited members of The Council of Overseas British International Schools (COBIS), since 2016.
EPG Secondary education for Key Stage 3 (11 to 14 year-olds) is hosted in a new, purpose built school on the Salwa campus. Specialist teachers provide a full range of subjects, following the National Curriculum for England alongside the Ministry of Education Curriculum, in anticipation of providing students with international certification in Key Stage 4. Students will progress to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Key Stage 4 (15 and 16 year-olds) with the option to progress to Advanced Level Exams (A Level Exams) or international education opportunities.
EPG’s research-based methodology in delivering the curriculum, ensures that children have fun through active learning whilst building the skills they need for success in school and in life. We recognise that parents are an integral part of the learning process and our teachers collaborate with our parents to nurture children into respectful, confident and joyful learners.
Our leadership and teaching family are at the core of EPG. To support and strengthen their skills, we offer a range of continuous professional development and training from leading international providers, ensuring that they are equipped with current best practice to support the development of our students.
EPG schools provide a stimulating, creative and welcoming environment. We value the active engagement of children, as we believe all children must have opportunities to work together, grow, play, and explore. Our facilities, which are designed specifically with Early Years, Primary and Secondary-aged children in mind, are constantly updated to meet the needs of a diverse student body, with specialist classrooms and labs, libraries, sports facilities and play areas to facilitate the different curricular subjects that our children are offered. All areas are spacious, with modern furnishings and carefully designed to reflect the needs of the child.
Educational trips, events and extra-curricular activities for all ages and abilities are also offered at EPG. Activities such as swimming, ballet, karate, arts and crafts and robotics are enjoyed in EPG Clubs and at the EPG Talent Center.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children to EPG!

“EPG in short is amazing! I am really speechless! EPG helped me to do some fun educational activities with my daughter and she really enjoyed doing them. Thanks a lot for everything.”
“One of the most important decisions is choosing first year school to our children as it will be the base. Once we visit and knew EPG in Salwa we feel comfortable to the subjects, tools & environment. When the year starts we were more satisfied as the culture was so close to a family that leads my daughter to gain a lot of talents and knowledge from FS1 .
We appreciate all the effort done and continues during the curfew in Kuwait. It helps the kids being in the mood of learning, motivation & family spirit to be the best they can be.”
“We miss our epg school , miss having fun , learning and playing with our friends but safety comes first, hope to see you all soon.”
“I was happy with the EPG school initiative of having online teaching and activities during the lockdown. The school kept the students busy with educational and funny activities to utilize their time and successfully deliver the curriculum. EPG kept in touch with the students especially when we received the EPG gift, how beautiful and meaningful it was. I am very grateful for all staff at EPG Salwa branch and for all EPG staff for their dedication and hard work, I couldn't think of a better school for my children to be in.”
“Thank you EPG for the continuous follow-up, and the daily engaging activities & social media interactions which allowed our kids to stay connected & very well engaged, i can see that these daily activities have introduced positive challenges and encouragement which our kids were in need for, especially during the connected curfew & distancing period .. Thanks once again. These challenges kept And encourage them by gifts ,Wish you all the best”
My kids are so in love with learning, I didn’t know that Hur really likes to write until I saw hoe happy she was when I printed out the activities you are sending to me. She fights with her brother over the papers to do them. She also asks me to buy red flowers for her teachers, and she said that she loves her teachers. It also means a lot to me because she prove to me that she is in good and safe hands. Mohammed too, he know how to read, to write with a little help from me. He surprised me how good he is in reading and writing in both languages, English and Arabic. Thank you English Playgroup for this great job you are doing with our kids in school and also online now. You are the best. I think I will keep Hur in EPG for FS1 and FS2.
