Comments/Description
Opened in September 2016, King’s College offers the international community of Qatar an outstanding British independent school education in some of the best facilities the region has to offer. In partnership with our UK parent school, King’s College, Taunton, King’s Doha looks to build on the outstanding reputation the UK school has established over the last 135 years.
The school currently caters for around 220 students aged 3 – 9 (Pre-school to Year 4) but will eventually extend into a complete through-school for students up to 18 years of age (Year 13). We expect our student body to increase to around 350 for September 2017.
The school campus is designed by award winning school architects and houses some of the finest Early Years and Primary School facilities in Qatar.
A glazed central atrium sits at the heart of the new school offering a unique amphitheatre styled performance hall surrounded by large, state of the art classrooms with dedicated indoor and outdoor learning and play areas.
The school houses an excellent array of specialist teaching spaces including Science Labs, an Art and Design centre and Music classrooms as well as a dedicated Arabic and Islamic Studies centre. ICT plays a key role throughout, with Wi-Fi available in all internal areas and a Mac Computer Lab allowing for a wide range of computing, coding and digital design and editing.
The extensive sports facilities include an indoor hall, an Astroturf pitch for football and a multi-purpose play area for tennis, basketball and netball and other outdoor games. The school also houses a new 25m pool with learner area. Dining and kitchen facilities  offer healthy and nutritious meals.
The library is a focal point for the school, providing a diverse range of traditional books and digital media within a space catering to personalised learning and study. An enrichment centre that focuses on the personalised learning needs of children including additional English language and specialised learning support are an important facility within the school.
Phase two will include an expansion within the current site to allow for more classrooms and specialist teaching areas. Further to this, the school will develop an additional site close to the existing one, to house a senior school. These facilities will continue to allow the school to offer amongst the widest range of subjects of any international school in the region, promoting innovation, creativity, study and collaboration.
