School news & events

Further information

Welcome to Sherborne Qatar. Sherborne Qatar consists of two English speaking schools – Sherborne Qatar School for pupils aged 11 to 18 and Sherborne Qatar Preparatory School, for pupils aged 3 to 11.

Both schools aim to provide a wide and stimulating curriculum for all of its pupils, whatever their nationality. However, many schools will say this on their websites, so what makes Sherborne Qatar different and what makes ours the schools of choice in Qatar? 

Everything we do at both Sherborne Qatar Schools is underpinned by shared and agreed values, which are Respect, Honesty, Kindness, Perseverance, Teamwork and Responsibility.

Children learn when they are happy and safe and I honestly believe that both of our schools have a culture that allows pupils to be happy in school. Add to this high quality teaching, a strong belief that values and morals are important factors in a child’s education, a strong community of parents and educators, fantastic kids and you have the recipe for a great school.

Our pupils benefit from small class sizes, which enable us to create learning environments which encourage 21st Century learner. We are able to encourage our pupils to become thinkers, problem solvers, debaters, communicators and entrepreneurs, all in a classroom where they are encouraged to take chances and are allowed to make mistakes. In short we believe in ‘Education for Life’.
