The decision to admit your child is made after we have considered all aspects of the application. All offers are subject to availability of places. With regret, due to the number of applications we receive and as per our school policy, it is not possible to give detailed individualised feedback after an assessment has been completed.

  • If the application is successful, our Admissions Team will send you an offer letter of confirmation, offering your child a place at King’s College Doha along with an acceptance form. The year group to which your child is admitted will be age-appropriate and in accordance with the International Education System Equivalency guidance issued by the MoE.
  • To proceed with your child’s enrolment, you will be required to pay the non-refundable registration fee of QAR 2,500 to our Admissions Team within 7 days of receipt of our offer letter. This payment can be settled online through our website or via bank transfer or in person by credit card or cash at the school.
  • Finally, in order to accept and secure the place, an acceptance deposit must be paid (QAR 7,925 for Pre-School – Year 6, QAR 8,917 for Year 7 – 10). This will be deducted from your first term’s fees.

Scholarships

As a school, we run a scholarship program to support talented pupils who show passion and potential in one or more areas of the curriculum. There is an expectation that scholars act as role models and peer leaders, demonstrating how potential can be realised and what can be achieved through commitment and determination.

For existing pupils, academic scholarships can be awarded by the school, where there is evidence of a child’s outstanding performance in both external and internal assessments, carried out by the school over the year. For non-academic subjects, awards will be made to children considered to be achieving at an exceptional level both within the school and at a national level.

For new pupils, such an award will be assessed against performance on entry and historical evidence shared by parents and former schools.

Scholarships awarded carry a small reduction in school fees and are reviewed annually. All decisions made by the school are final.

Future School Support

We are always keen to support our pupils as they continue their educational journey beyond King’s College Doha. We will endeavour to support families leaving the school with applications, in particular, for schools abroad. This support could include, but is not limited to, letters of recommendation, interview practice, confidential reports and the school being used as a centre to sit an entrance exam. Some schools may provide a practice paper for potential pupils and we will seek to offer limited individual support in preparing the children in such instances.

Please note that it is the responsibility of parents to contact potential schools independently (including King’s College UK), who will then, in turn, contact us for any required actions.
