Our school resides in the town of Al Khor, 35 minutes north of Doha (the capital of Qatar). We educate both local and expat students through a bespoke Primary curriculum which draws on the English National Curriculum, The Qatar Ministry of Education Curriculum and the IPC. Currently, the school is working to develop particular strengths in the areas of English language, EYFS and STEAM. We also have strong through-school links.
