What the school says
“We provide a rich education experience which focuses on the intellectual, the creative, the emotional and the practical talents of each child. We want to ensure that pupils learn the value of kindness, respect, manners, concern for others and service to the community. We aim to produce happy children who are independent thinkers, with the ability to adapt and improve and who are prepared to engage fully in their learning. We wish them to become good communicators by speaking and listening to each other, and by appreciating each other's company. We encourage pupils to become lifelong learners, able to adapt to the amazing advances and changes that are certain to happen in their lifetimes.”
The school follows a version of the National Curriculum for England enriched with international elements. In the Senior School, pupils are prepared for IGCSE examinations using the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) board specifications and follow courses leading to the CIE International AS and A Level examinations.
The school is just past Education City to the west of Doha, five minutes' drive from the Dukhan Highway.
