King's College Doha
About King's College Doha
King’s College Doha offers the international community of Qatar an outstanding UK-style independent school education in some of the best facilities that the region has to offer. After a hugely successful opening in September 2016, the School has established itself as one of the leading schools in Doha and is oversubscribed.
The partnership with our UK sister school, King’s College Taunton, is a great source of strength. Significant collaboration in areas such as vision and ethos, curriculum planning, professional development and co-curriculum opportunities, ensures that we maintain high standards of education. Through our partnership, both children and teachers in Doha benefit from the expertise and reputation King’s College UK has built over the past 150 years.
King’s College Doha provides:
- a premium, diverse British curriculum in an international context;
- academic excellence for all;
- outstanding pastoral care and opportunities for personal development;
- a broad range of co-curricular activities as part of a fulfilling school day
We combine an academic focus with a broad co-curriculum, offering all our students an extended and fulfilling day. Underpinning our curriculum is the value we attach to pastoral care. We understand that children fulfil their potential when they feel happy, supported and at ease in their surroundings. All members of staff work hard to build a strong sense of community and promote supportive relationships, ensuring that children know that they always have a peer or an adult to whom they can talk.
King’s College Doha currently caters for nearly 600 children, aged 3 to 12 (Pre-School to Year 7). Our first Year 8 cohort starts in September 2020, when we expect the number of children enrolled to increase to over 600. Ultimately, King’s College Doha will offer iGCSEs and A Levels as the school plans to open a new campus. The structure will mirror that of King’s College Taunton in the UK.

The School is conveniently located in the district of Al Thumama, easily accessible from most parts of Doha and only a twenty-minute drive from the City centre. Our impressive campus houses some of the finest Prep School facilities in Qatar. These include a dedicated library, a central atrium, science labs, an art and design centre, music and drama classrooms and practice rooms, a mac lab, a sports hall, a brand new outdoor 25-metre pool with learner area, and outdoor games courts.
Recently, King's College Doha successfully achieved the Qatar National Schools Accreditation in record time and is a member of the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME). According to the Ministry of Education, King's College Doha is already rated among the most outstanding schools in Doha after only three years of operation.
