Description

Qatar International School is a fully accredited British International School, located in the Dafna district of Doha. The school was founded in 1977 making it one of the first British schools in Qatar. 40 years on and QIS is now one of the largest and most successful schools in the country, with nearly 2,000 students on role.

Conveniently situated beneath the impressive skyscrapers and business centre of West Bay, the school occupies a unique, purpose built campus. Here we have developed the full range of specialist school facilities, which more than meet UK standards and include science laboratories, ICT suites, a swimming pool, playing field, and 2 large sports halls.

The school is led and managed entirely by British professionals and we strive to maintain the highest standards of the current English Education system. Children are taught in Key Stages from Early Years through to KS5 and examinations are taken in GCSE, IGCSE and A Levels, using UK examination boards. In general, 50% of our sixth form students leave to universities in the UK but also the USA, Canada and elsewhere. All English Curriculum staff are UK qualified or experienced and the school prides itself on ensuring it keeps up to date with the very best international practice and training.

In 2015 QIS received the highest possible grading from the Qatar National School’s Accreditation programme and was certified for 5 years. The following year we were awarded full BSO status (British School Overseas) by the UK Government following an excellent inspection in October 2016.

Our student body is truly international, with over 60 different nationalities represented within the current cohort. While the teaching staff is predominantly British and the curriculum is taught in English, the school is adept at integrating students from a wide variety of cultural and academic backgrounds.
