English School Kuwait

Principal's Welcome

Leigh Hovey
Principal

26 Years (and counting) working in education, the last 21 in leadership positions of schools all shapes and sizes. Trained as an inspector of British schools and an improvement advisor. Based in London in the UK until 2017.

I am married with 4 children and 4 dogs. I like to run and play the guitar

(not at the same time!)

It is my greatest privilege and honour to be the Principal of Cambridge English School, Hawally. I am also delighted to welcome you to our website, we hope you find it informative and helpful.

Education is a journey, from the moment our children are born they begin to learn and develop at an incredible rate. In the 3 years before they start school they learn to walk, talk, eat and a multitude of other skills and knowledge.

When your child joins us we will work with you to ensure the very best education and the richest experiences for them.

Our simple vision is that we will strive relentlessly to ensure that Cambridge English Schools will be among the very best schools in Kuwait. In turn we want every child to be the very best they can be, and we expect the same from ourselves.

We will always be aspirational and aim for the very highest standards, looking to constantly improve and develop.

We are excited to be on this journey of excellence and welcome you along with us, parent engagement and support will be a key factor in our continuing success, working in partnership will ensure the very best outcomes for our students and our school.

So please ensure that you come and see us with any questions, suggestions or just things you wish to raise.
