Welcome to King’s College Doha

Welcome to our school website! Throughout these pages we aim to give you a glimpse of life at King’s College British Independent School here in Doha. King’s College Doha brings 140 years of education excellence to the region as the first international offer from the prestigious King’s College Taunton in the UK – a key feeder school to Oxford and Cambridge with some of the best GCSE and A-level results in the country.

KCD provides families living and working in Qatar the reassurance of the same high standards of our sister school; delivered in a dynamic international community by UK qualified teachers in a beautiful purpose-built setting with first-class facilities. Our strong academic programme is underpinned by exceptional pastoral care, focussed on developing our young learners to be happy, caring, confident and curious individuals. We are proud to sit apart in Qatar as the only Prep-School to provide specialist subject teaching across all subjects from Year 5, this helps students prepare for their onward educational journey with a deeper understanding and passion for each subject.

Whilst the website is a great first step on your KCD journey, we know, as parents ourselves, that nothing replaces the feeling you get when you and your family visit a school – our leadership team carry out two school tours each week during term-time, on Monday and Wednesday morning starting at 10.30am. We would love you to come along and see our outstanding English National Curriculum school for yourself, please visit our Open Apply to book your tour.

Welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to King’s College Doha. As you explore our website, I hope you will get a sense of our happy, caring and progressive school.


At King’s College Doha, we recognise that in order for each child to develop to their potential, they need to be inspired and nurtured in a way that works for them. Our British independent school model follows traditional values but applies them within the international context of Qatar, allowing us to fully support individualised learning through a broad and balanced curriculum. We combine a progressive and rigorous academic curriculum with a fulfilling co-curriculum in an extended school day to ensure that every child has the opportunity to develop as an able, well-rounded young person.


We recruit experienced and well-qualified staff throughout the school, with Years 5 and above benefiting from all subjects being taught by specialist teaching. Our adapted English National Curriculum is delivered within a dynamic and caring international community, with exceptional pastoral care at the heart of everything we do. King’s College Doha pupils are recognised as individuals and our highly specialised staff adapt their teaching to enable each and every child to access their subjects and reach their potential with an enthusiasm for learning that will remain with them throughout their lives.

Our small class sizes, excellent resources and facilities and an enviable built-in co-curricular programme, help us stand out in the region as the premier choice for families looking for an outstanding British style independent school education in Qatar.

Our belief in educating the whole child ensures KCD pupils are able to transition seamlessly between countries and curricula at any stage, with the reassurance of the high standards expected of any high-performing UK independent school.

Your child will be given every chance to shine and achieve beyond their perceived boundaries in the classroom and through many activities including sports, music, the arts, leadership opportunities and charitable, to be the very best they can be at King’s College Doha.

A warm welcome awaits you.
