About us

QIS is one of the best international schools both in the nation of Qatar and in the wider Middle East region – we are one of a select number of schools in the world to hold BSO’s ‘Gold Standard’.

Our 2020 BSO report wrote:

‘The school is highly effective in enabling all students to develop their personal skills and qualities. Students are thoughtful, well behaved, treat others with respect and have well developed social skills.’

‘The school is held in high regard by the wider community and parents. Students are proud to be members of the school and value the opportunities it provides.’

‘Positive relationships between staff and students create a learning environment where students feel safe and valued. Students are engaged and interested in their learning.’

We follow the latest National Curriculum for England, and all our non-Arabic teachers have either taught or been trained under the UK system. We have about 2,000 students ranging from 3 to 18 years of age.

We provide an outstanding education to all our students, who regularly achieve some of the best results in the world.



We do not believe in long, pointless application forms! Please apply by emailing us your CV and a brief covering letter to explaining why you’d be a great fit for QIS.

Initial interviews may be conducted online or face-to-face if the candidate is in Qatar. Successful candidates will be fully supported all the way through to their joining day – and beyond.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of excellent applications we receive, we are unable to notify those who have not been shortlisted.

Our world-class British International School, based in central Doha, is looking for a small number of outstanding secondary teachers to join us for the new academic year, beginning 2023 academic year. We can’t wait to hear from you.
