About Doha College
About Doha College
As one of the oldest British Schools in Qatar, Doha College boasts a rich history of educational excellence based on firmly embedded values, a passion for learning and an international environment which inspires through its sheer diversity. We are the first school in the world to be honoured with the High Performance Learning (HPL) accreditation, as well as the first school in Qatar to be accredited under the new Council of British International Schools (COBIS) Patron’s Accreditation and Compliance Scheme.
Originally opened in 1980, the school continues to operate under the sponsorship of the British Embassy on a not-for-profit basis, featuring over 2000 students, aged 3 -18, from 68 different nationalities. We are truly an international school teaching the well-respected British curriculum offering IGCSE, AS and A levels in a wide range of subjects.
2019 has been an exciting year for Doha College, marking the beginning of the move to our brand new pioneering, 90,000m² state-of-the-art campus, which will open its doors in September 2020, just in time for our 40th anniversary celebrations. In addition to cutting-edge facilities and inspiring learning environments, the new campus will feature dedicated zones for Primary and Secondary, as well as expansive indoor and outdoor sports facilities, drama studios and swimming pools. Our new world-class campus will allow future generations of Doha College students to thrive and unlock their full potential in an environment which is fit for the learning needs of the 21st century.
Doha College’s salary and benefits package is recognised as one of the best in the Middle East. Our staff receive a generous tax-free salary, a monthly accommodation allowance, an annual flight allowance and a substantial settling in allowance. We have a comprehensive on-boarding and orientation program, providing support at every step of the process, which allows new staff to effectively navigate the challenges that come with an international move. Doha College also offers an enormous CPD budget, allowing our staff to multiply their talent and pursue further education and training courses within Qatar and around the world.
A combination of old-world hospitality and cosmopolitan sophistication means that Qatar is a country like no other and its capital Doha is a city that has something for everyone. With world-class infrastructure, amenities and medical facilities, Doha is also preparing to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup when the eyes of the world will turn to Qatar. Whether you will be looking to move with your family or to come on your own, you are guaranteed a warm welcome.
