About Mesaieed International School

About Mesaieed International School

We are a QatarEnergy owned international school that follows the National Curriculum for England. The school currently has 1090 pupils from the ages of 3-19. Our students all reside in Mesaieed and are the children of QatarEnergy and associate companies’ employees.

OUR VISION is for our students to be high achieving, healthy and happy individuals, well prepared to take their place as global citizens and leaders of the future.

OUR MISSION is to achieve this by inspirational teaching that places high value on learning, enjoyment and the well-being of all our students.

The academic year mirrors the English system of three terms, beginning in August. Local religious and QatarEnergy holidays are observed. The school week runs from Sunday to Thursday, the weekend being Friday and Saturday. For teachers the school day begins at 6.30am and finishes at 2.30pm, unless staff have other meeting commitments.  Every Sunday staff participate in collaborative working sessions and the school day ends for staff between 3.30pm and 4.00pm.


We have 30 nationalities in the school, with over 30 different languages spoken. Approximately 95% of our students speak English as a second language. They are hardworking, enthusiastic, kind and compassionate and make working at our school both a pleasure and a privilege.

Parents and Home/School Communication

We believe the relationship between school and the parents is vital. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their children’s learning and this takes on many forms, including open mornings, parents and teacher meetings, workshops, informal school activities, community events and volunteering throughout all year groups.

School Buildings and Facilities

The school operates across three campuses:

  • A purpose built EYFS campus for children between the ages of 3 and 5
  • A Primary campus for children from 5 to 11/12 years of age
  • A Secondary campus for students aged 11 to 18/19

All three campuses were completed between 2008 and 2010 and as such staff and students benefit from modern facilities, including:

  • Two 25m swimming pools
  • Two Astro pitches
  • Two 200m running tracks
  • Two sports halls
  • Two extensive libraries in primary and secondary
  • ICT Suites
  • Music rooms with designated sound proofed practice rooms in both primary and secondary
  • Very spacious classrooms
  • Art, Science and Technology suites in secondary
  • Food technology room in primary
  • Interactive White Boards in all classrooms


The House system is designed to promote school spirit, cooperation, a healthy sense of competition and a feeling of pride in belonging. It supports our work on health and well-being, fostering a sense of pride and achievement across various areas of school life. Students are placed into one of four Houses on joining school and where possible are placed in the same houses as older siblings:

  • Oryx (Green)
  • Pearl (Yellow)
  • Falcon (Blue)
  • Dhow (Red)


We are fully involved in the Qatar Private Primary (QPPSSA) and Secondary Schools Sports Associations (QUESS), participating in various sporting events including football, netball, basketball, swimming, athletics and cricket throughout the year, both in Mesaieed and in various schools in Al Wakrah and Doha. Our students love these events and are regularly commended for their politeness, attitude and good sportsmanship.  We have some very talented sportsmen and sportswomen, with students often selected to participate in National and International level competitions.

Trips and Visits

The curriculum at MIS is supported by a wide range of stimulating educational experiences. During the course of the year there are opportunities for the children to be involved in excursions to a variety of places in the local area. These trips are generally linked to class work and supporting requirements for external examinations.

Extra-Curricular Activities

After-school activities provide enriching opportunities to learn something new, extend particular skills beyond the levels gained through the normal school curriculum, and to make new friends with similar interests.  ECAs are held after school, over three days, in secondary and once a week in primary.  All students are given an opportunity to spend some time engaged in a club, society or activity designed to broaden their experience and improve their knowledge.
