Senior Prep (Ages 9 to 13)
Unlike most other primary schools in Qatar, children in Years 5 to 8 at King’s are taught by subject specialist teachers in all lessons – Maths, English, Science, Arabic, Islamic Studies, Qatari History, Humanities, IT, PE, Swimming, Music, Art, DT and PSHE. This gives students the opportunities to learn beyond their perceived boundaries in preparation for higher education. This specialist subject teaching model enables our students to start secondary school at either age 11 or 13.
In these years more formal forms of assessment are introduced, building towards an exam taken by children in the final term of Year 8.
