The School Day

The school gates open at 7.15am and learning commences at 7.30am. The end of the school day varies depending on the age of the child. Pre-School children finish at 12.30pm, Reception at 2.00pm and children from Year 1 upwards have an opportunity to stay in school for a co-curricular club which runs from 2.50pm to 3.30pm.

In a school week, children will typically experience a sociable dining experience, at least 10 playtimes, Games, Music (whole class, choirs and one-to-one), Arabic and Islamic Studies, PE, Qatari History, Art, Drama, alongside a focus on English, Maths and Science. Class assemblies take place throughout the week in different year groups and as a whole school at the end of the week, where successes are celebrated and House points scores are revealed.

The wide range of clubs on offer includes Aerobics, Arabic, Arts & Crafts, Board Games, Computing, Football, Guitar and Philosophy. These are subject to change as they draw on the staff’s current expertise and interests. There is also an opportunity for children to remain at school to complete their homework. Working alongside our staff and after school, we use an outside extra-curricular provider, The Academy Doha, to run additional activities.

Every child should leave the school by giving their teacher a firm handshake and a warm ‘Good afternoon’. We encourage our children to smile – a lot. We encourage our children to embrace a love of learning – and more. We have a library full of wonderful books, a music room filled with instruments, there are computers spread across the school, and both children’s work and artwork can be found proudly displayed along the white walls in all manner of shapes, colours, design and sizes.

By following the School’s Golden Rules, children can earn respect, feel valued and learn to work and play in a healthy, safe and caring environment. Rewards are plentiful through our House Points system – these points are earned through both social and academic endeavours.

Children are given ample stimulation through the wealth of skills, experience and knowledge that our dedicated staff provide. We are proud of our building and its facilities, but most importantly we are immensely proud of the children who have grown to know and love King’s College Doha, and have made the school what it is in such a short space of time.

We are incredibly excited about the next chapter in our development as we expand our offer to provide a through-school education for children age 3 to 18. Our new through-school will be open in September 2021. Full details will be released next academic year.
