An outstanding education
As a leading British International School in Qatar, Doha College has been delivering academic excellence for over 40 years. We are committed to High Performance Learning and have pioneered the way in embracing this ground-breaking approach to a full education that reaches far beyond the curriculum.
Our 6th Form has an outstanding reputation. We encourage full and active participation in all areas of college life. Students learn to develop as independent thinkers, to challenge their understanding, listen to the views of others and consider the world around them in a wider context. Our emphasis is on helping each student to develop their full potential academically and become a well rounded individual, who is equipped to go out into the world and achieve their dreams.
Our 6th Form students are true advocates of the Doha College DNA, which they take pride in disseminating to our younger students. They are actively involved in the school, be it in Primary or Secondary, and proudly carry the ethos of ‘excellence for all, excellence from all.
Dr Steffen Sommer, Principal
The Secondary follows the National Curriculum for England, providing an education for children between the ages of 11 and 18, covering Years 7 to 13.
With an emphasis on academic excellence, careful attention is given to students’ individual learning needs with regular monitoring and tracking as students progress through Secondary.
What is BTEC?
BTEC’s are career-based further education qualifications designed to give students the skills they need to move on to University or go straight into employment. Qualifications are organised and awarded by Edexcel and are regarded as the equivalent to A-Levels.
The course delivered by LLS in Doha was introduced following 10 years of success in England, Wales and Ireland.
The LLS Mission at Doha College: to create sports professionals of the future
Students work on a weekly basis with our own PE department as well as the outstanding professional coaches at Evolution Sports and other sports leaders within the community. This is a rich opportunity to work with experts and put their theoretical knowledge into practice. Students develop transferrable skills including organisation, effective communication and leadership.
Students enjoy regular visits from, and practical workshops with, guest speakers from the world of sport. Recent guests to Doha College include Tony Carr MBE (former West Ham UTD Academy Director), Michael Beale (current Rangers FC Head Coach), Dave Galley (Aspire Senior Physiotherapist), Dr Phillip Graham Smith (Aspire Biomechanics) and Liz McColgan MBE (former Olympic and World Champion athlete).
