Principal's Welcome

Choosing the right school is immensely important, whether it's identifying the right environment for a child first starting their school life, or indeed at any other stage in a nomadic expat life. As one of the oldest British Schools in Qatar, Doha College has enjoyed a history of educational excellence based on firmly embedded values, a passion for learning and an international environment that inspires through its sheer diversity.

Doha College is a British School which, in keeping with our motto Excellence for All, Excellence from All, fosters relationships based on trust and mutual respect from which students and staff draw their motivation and ambition, making a positive and lasting contribution to College life and society as a whole.

As the Principal, I feel privileged to lead this outstanding School. The world-class facilities in our brand-new state-of-the-art campus, complement the college’s achievements and reflect our ongoing commitment to providing our students with an incredible range of opportunities. Doha College is an exciting place to be. It is a school where we subscribe to High Performance Learning, a pedagogy that requires teachers to instil in our students thinking skills and a growth mindset in an enquiry-based learning environment. These essential ingredients for success in the 21st century are enriched and enhanced by our diverse extra-curricular programme of sport, music, drama, educational expeditions and many other pursuits, all designed to educate the whole person.

Since I only have little space to give you a flavour of what we do, and how much this school means to me and every one of our students and staff, I would like to invite you to explore our website and to come and visit us when you have the time. We would welcome the opportunity to give you a tour and to make you feel part of the much-vaunted Doha College experience.
