Doha College welcomes new Principal David Tongue
We are delighted to share that, following a highly competitive and rigorous recruitment process for our new Principal, we will welcome David Tongue to Doha College in August 2023 to take up the position.
David, currently the Principal at St George’s British International School Rome - one of the most established and successful not-for-profit British international schools in Europe - will bring a wealth of experience that fits well with the standing of Doha College. During the interview and selection process, David demonstrated a deep knowledge base on the latest trends in the education sector, empathy and tact in dealing with difficult situations, and a passion for learning.
His time in Italy has seen the school achieve its best-ever academic results and its highest-ever pupil roll. Prior to this, he was a Founding Headmaster for Brighton College International Schools, where he led the start-up, growth and development of two overseas campuses of the UK independent school - one in Bangkok, Thailand and one in Al Ain, UAE. Both schools have grown rapidly and developed strong reputations for delivering a world-class and highly innovative education. David is a former school inspector, a Non-Executive Director of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and an active member of the International Division of the HMC, where he sits on the Academic Policy Committee.
We wish David every success in the new role and we look forward to welcoming him to Doha College in August next year.
