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 selected number of schools in the world to hold BSO’s ‘Gold Standard’. Our recent BSO report (2020) 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.’

Our primary school – currently comprised of about 1,000 students – is a vibrant, fun and multicultural place of learning. It offers an engaging and warm environment, where children and staff alike are encouraged to investigate and develop their curiosity.


Across each Key Stage, our students enjoy a creative, skills based, curriculum delivered through ‘I wonder’ and continuous provision (EYFS), thematic/linked provision (KS1), and thematic learning (KS2). Specialist lessons for Arabic, Islamic Studies, PE, French, Music, and DT form part of students’ personalised timetables, supporting further our broad and balanced curriculum offer. Our class teachers are highly trained in programmes such as Talk 4 Writing and Read-Write-Inc, which we use to enrich the children’s learning. Classes are supported by trained, qualified, and experienced Learning Support Practitioners.


Application and interview

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.
