Specialist Subject Approach

In most schools, general class teachers cover all subjects to Year 6. Uniquely, our passionate teachers, with UK recognised training and qualifications, offer specialist teaching in all subjects from Year 5 onwards, with some subject specialists extending all the way down to Pre-School.

Qatar Culture and Arabic Language

The King’s approach is tailored to fit with our local Doha setting. Arabic language, Islamic Studies and Social Studies are central components of our curriculum. Arabic language, for instance, is offered from Pre-School and delivered by subject specialist teachers.

The standard of teaching is fantastic and we could not be happier.  

King’s College Doha is a fantastic school.  Pastorally and academically we are incredibly happy.  Our son has been through huge change recently (new country, starting ‘big’ school, and a new baby at home all in the space of three weeks) and KCD have been exceptionally good at supporting our family with this transition.  We adore the staff, and are thrilled with our little boy’s progress so far.  One of the school’s aims is to provide a happy, safe, nurturing environment, where the children have a sense of belonging and respect for one another. I can safely say that they are achieving this daily.  The standard of teaching is fantastic and we could not be happier.  A wonderful addition to Doha. King’s is already more than just a school.

What a good school can do.

I just wanted to thank you for your amazing job that you’re doing for a long time. I know how difficult it was to motivate Renas and keep him on track despite the fact that the pandemic circumstances and difficulties on online lessons. But you did a wonderful job to find a way for him to engage in the lessons.

Tiana George’s first month of school an amazing experience.

We wanted to express our thanks for making our daughter, Tiana George’s first month of school an amazing experience. The entire process of getting the kids to settle down in a new environment was so perfectly planned and well executed. Sincere thanks to the entire team, from the staff who help us with morning drop off, to all teachers and assistant staff until our pickup.

My child had a fantastic few weeks at school.

My child had a fantastic few weeks at school. We want to thank Ms Medbou, Ms Jan and Ms Rose for all of their love and care to help him settle in school.

As you know he’s never been to school or nursery prior to joining pre school at Kings, and he was super excited to join. He had a few wobbles in his first full week, but we’re so pleased with the way his teachers helped him. Ms Medbou was also very welcoming when we met to talk about how to help him settle and really made the effort to hear us out.
