From the head teacher

“Most of our students born after 2000 may well live to be over 100 years of age. They face a future of employment, activity and life-style hitherto unknown. Knowledge and its applications are being superseded exponentially. We educate our students in the way of learning to learn, so that learning becomes a lifelong process – a habit – that we can adapt as the future unfolds. The content and delivery of our curriculum is holistic, visionary and challenging. This is what we can offer our students and staff in a safe, secure and loving environment where learning to learn should be a joy. Please come and visit us to experience for yourself what the International School of London in Qatar has to offer for you.”

~ Amin Makarem, Managing Director
