List of Required Documents:

  • 4 recent passport-sized photo of your child
  • Child’s passport
  • Parent’s/guardian’s passport
  • Child’s birth certificate
  • Valid Qatar ID card (for child and parents)
  • Up-to-date health and immunisation documentation (for child)
  • A recent report from your child’s/children’s nursery/school
  • Any other relevant reports relating to specific learning needs or medical requirements (allergies etc) for your child.

We ask you to note that in accordance with the Ministry of Education (MoE) guidelines for student admissions in Qatar, your application will not be considered without the mentioned documents when submitting your application.

All children must be in possession of a valid Qatari Residency Permit before starting school in Qatar.

Assessments

Children entering Pre-School, Reception and Year 1 (3 to 5 years old) will undertake play-based observations in small groups. Assessments for children entering Years 2 to 7 (6 to 13 years old) will undertake a more formal assessment where the focus will be on reading, writing and mathematics.

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.

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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 10 days of receipt of our offer letter. This can be made via bank transfer or in person by credit card or cash at the school.

Step Four

Finally, in order to accept and secure the place, a non-refundable acceptance deposit of QAR 7,700 must be paid. This will be deducted from your first term’s fees.

Overseas Applications

Prospective parents wishing to join us from overseas please complete the online application form and provide all the relevant information and documents, including academic reports and any behavioural reports, if applicable. Please be aware that the MoE has set the initial cut-off date for registration of all new overseas children of 17th October 2019. All parents will be required to seek permission from the MoE for their child to start school in Qatar. Final registration for overseas children for each academic year is 31st January 2020.
