What the school says

"Compass International School Doha is one of Qatar’s leading schools, providing the very best of British and international curricula for over ten years. As part of premium education provider Nord Anglia Education, Compass International School Doha offers your child a truly unique international learning experience. 

Compass International School Doha is more than a school. It is a thriving community where your child will become the best version of themselves and where your child will see no limits to what they will achieve. Every child is encouraged to be ambitious in their learning and to exceed expectations. Each child is nurtured through personalised learning to build self-confidence and develop into ambitious learners and strong performers. We understand that it is important to develop social skills as well as academic success. Our students are inspired to think independently and critically, to evaluate and make judgments themselves and with their peers. 


Children aged three to 18 are taught at our four campuses across Doha: Themaid, Madinat Khalifa, Gharaffa and Rayyan. The curricula offered at our campuses include the International Primary Curriculum, English National Curriculum, IGCSE and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme. A-Levels and BTEC vocational programmes will be available in future years at our new Themaid Campus for Years 12 and 13. 

The main teaching language is English. We also offer Arabic for native speakers, an English/French Bilingual Programme at Rayyan Campus, a Dutch Language and Culture Programme for native Dutch speakers at Gharaffa Campus as well as Arabic, French and Spanish as foreign languages.

Nord Anglia Education, with 66 schools across 29 countries, has unique collaborations and links with world-renowned institutions such as The Juilliard School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which offer students a wealth of innovative curricular experiences and will help your child connect with their future. The Nord Anglia Education Global Campus offers challenges, collaborations and worldwide experiences that will provide a host of benefits for your child and stimulate their natural curiosity to learn. Through our collaboration with UNICEF, students are encouraged to research, develop and debate solutions to challenges facing society.


There is an application fee which ranges from 567 QAR to 595 QAR depending on the campus. There is also a placement test fee which is the same price as the application fee.
