QIS was founded by Sheikh Ali bin Ahmed bin Thani Al Thani and the first Principal, Mrs Joyce Griffin, in 1977, making us one of the first British International Schools in Qatar.

Since then, we have changed and grown significantly – including a move to our current location of Al Dafna in 2001. Indeed, from very small beginnings almost 50 years ago, QIS has now grown into one of the largest and most prestigious schools in the country, with around 2,000 students on roll.

Qatar International School is led and managed entirely by British professionals, who strive to maintain the highest standards of the current English education system, whilst also supporting the school’s Arabic culture and international context.

The vast majority of QIS teaching staff have trained and taught in the UK, and we pride ourselves on ensuring we keep up to date with the best international practice in education and learning.

Students are taught in Key Stages from Early Years and Key Stage 1 through to Key Stage 5, and examinations are taken in GCSE, IGCSE, and A Levels using UK examination boards. Almost all students leaving QIS move on to higher education in leading universities all over the world but most especially in the UK, USA, Canada, UAE, and Qatar itself.

Through high-quality teaching and learning, we will establish ourselves at the heart of our community locally, nationally, and internationally. QIS will be recognized for its excellent work in all areas of international education and its focus on ‘learning comes first.’ Everyone who belongs to QIS is a learner. The only distinction is where each of us is on our learning journey. To achieve this we will strive to become:

An outstanding and inspirational education provider where every learner will be challenged and allowed to flourish and develop beyond their potential. All learners will aspire to excellence and in so doing will be supported fully by a school that caters creatively to all needs and abilities.   A safe, caring, and secure school where every person matters. We will be recognized for the outstanding nature of our care, guidance, and support to staff, students, and parents. Quality mentoring and coaching will be available to all, underpinning our investment in people and their personal development. An organization where quality learning comes first, through creative and engaging activities, lessons, and relationships. Fundamental learning skills and competencies amongst all students and staff will be a key foundation to developing life-long learning, transferable to all lessons and situations. Everyone, adults and students alike, is on a learning journey that has been personalized, routed, and mapped out just for them. This will be evidenced by an innovative professional development program and forward-looking curriculum, which will empower all learners and encourage them to be active, independent participants in the learning process. A school where students’ thoughtful behavior is the outstanding contributory factor to their successful learning. Positive behaviors are recognized, encouraged, and rewarded in support of the QIS ethos. This will be modeled and exemplified by all stakeholders to ensure others do the same. An international community of learners where achievement, attainment, progress, and development are valued and celebrated in a ‘can do’ culture. All forms of prejudice are challenged whilst risk-taking and mistakes are viewed as a necessary part of the improvement process. Aspiration and ambition are the norm and high expectations are met with pride and enthusiasm. A center of excellence and specialism for the English curriculum in an international context. A school where standards, rigor and accountability are used positively and constructively to improve the learning community for everyone, ensuring that QIS will stand comparison with the very best schools in the UK and around the world.
