Qatar International School


Qatar International School

Founded 1977.
British Curriculum

The Qatar International School was founded by Mrs. Griffin (the Principal) as a small Pre-School unit in 1977 in Montaza. It has operated continuously under the same management since then, developing into the largest independent British School in Qatar.

The Primary Section opened in 1985, followed by the Secondary Section in 1994. There are now around 1200 students on the role, ranging from 2 to 17 years of age.

After initially operating out of converted villas, the school moved onto its first purpose-built campus in 1996 in the Mamoura area of Doha. This provided the specialist facilities required by the rapidly-growing Secondary Section.

A further move in 2001 allowed a further significant expansion in space and facilities, taking us to our existing campus in Dafna (West Bay).

The school operates from a purpose built facility, which opened in September 2001.

The school has been designed to give the Infant, Junior and Secondary sections their own areas and buildings within the campus, whilst also allowing them access to shared facilities.

Specialist facilities include:

Two floodlit multipurpose courts.
Grass, floodlit football pitch.
Swimming pool.
Specialist teaching rooms (art, technology, science laboratories, music & I.T. suites).
Multipurpose school hall.

Academic Scholarships
The school offers a limited number of academic scholarships for students in Year 12. These are publicised in February of each year and open to both internal applicants and students not currently at the school.

The scholarships cover tuition fees (either 50% or 100%) for one year of study towards AS Level examinations in Year 12. They are awarded on the basis of academic achievement.

Year 11 students interested in applying for a scholarship for next year should seek further information from the Head of Secondary.

The school is not academically selective, but we do require all students to reach a sufficient minimum standard in English and Mathematics to fit in with their peers.
