Head of Secondary

We require a dedicated, qualified and experienced Head of Secondary Boys. The ideal candidate will have an innovative, forward-thinking approach combined with a strong pastoral background.

Doha Academy provides a British-based education incorporating the mandatory requirements of the Qatar Ministry of Education and Higher Education for students aged 3 – 18. The school’s Vision and Mission is to provide an outstanding, accessible and inclusive education based upon the teachings of Islam, which develops students spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically.

Due to the success of our Qatar National Schools Accreditation process in February 2022, enrollment at Doha Academy has grown. The ideal candidate will have significant experience in contexts where English is an additional language. As a member of the upper senior leadership team, the Head of Secondary Boys will play an integral part in whole-school development, requiring a close working partnership with the overall Head of Secondary, Deputy Principal and Principal of the Doha Academy group of schools.

It is also desirable that the candidate has a NPQH or higher-level degree in education or related field, and can demonstrate a clear understanding of the National Curriculum for England’s Key Stage 3 – 5.

We also warmly welcome candidates who bring school accreditation and/or inspection experience to the role as the school continues on its path towards wider international recognition.

At Doha Academy you are not just offered a job but an opportunity to build your career and progress in a dynamic environment with the opportunity to also work across the group. With your skills and talents, we can provide you with the opportunity to achieve your career ambitions.
