Our teachers believe in the importance of exploring and developing the personal, social and cognitive skills that our children will need to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world. We seek to ensure that all pupils are equipped with the essential qualities of kindness, compassion, and respect for others; and that when each child leaves us they are skilled and confident in their ability to perform in a wide variety of contexts.

With over 50 different nationalities in the school, diversity is a cornerstone of our school. The International School of London, Qatar is striving to offer a truly “international education”, but recognises that this is not simply a question of having different nationalities in the school. Each and every one of our students, and their different backgrounds, experiences and cultures are recognised for who they are and for the unique qualities that each one of them bring to the school.

The extensive support provided by the school to the ongoing development of mother tongue languages is an essential component of the programme offered, and, as shown by the latest educational research, is fundamental to unlocking the academic potential of our students. Each child is encouraged not to forget who they are or where they came from in order to “fit in”. The importance of the individual is enshrined within our curriculum, which is founded upon a belief in the value of a holistic approach to education.
