Durham School for Girls Doha is seeking to appoint dynamic and inspirational SENDCo for 2019 due to late enrolment.

Following in the footsteps of Durham School UK, Durham School for Girls Doha aims to continue the heritage of strong pastoral care, inclusion and individual progress that make the School “Distinctively Durham”.  Within the school there will be a strong ethos based on the school philosophy and values. Centred around the girl’s individual development, we aim to ensure that we strive for a balance in both academic and personal, social development ensuring confidence for life.

Durham School for Girls Doha will be the first British all-girls school in Qatar. Linked with the 2030 vision of female empowerment, we aim to ensure an environment where girls can flourish and develop to reach their full potential. An all-female campus will provide the security for girls to develop individually, respect Qatari culture and values, and embrace the British system and methodology.

Being part of the Durham family, our pupils and staff can become part of the 600-year-old tradition and reputation of Durham UK. Although Durham School for Girls Doha works in a different community, a different country and a beautiful, modern building, the school will create a school culture that remains Durham. A strong pastoral House system will link to Durham UK and many synergies will unite the two schools, forming the sense of one school, two sites.

All Staff will be ready for the challenge of a new school and will be part of the school family and community. Like Durham UK, the staff will help to create and warm and secure learning environment where dedicated staff support and develop the girls in our school.

This is going to be an exciting new time and a chance for staff to be part of something old, and something new. This is a first for Qatar.

Application deadline: Interviews will be conducted on an ongoing basis.
