Principal’s Welcome

Mr John Smith Park House English School Principal
A very warm welcome to Park House English School. I am very privileged to be part of a school that was founded in 1994 and is one of the oldest and most prestigious British schools in Qatar. The school was set up and run by the Brennan family until 2015 when it became part of the International School Partnership group of schools. We are firmly committed to putting the best interests of our children at the heart of everything we do, including your child’s personal and academic development.

We are proud to say we have a truly international community at Park House. Our children and families come from over 70 different countries which helps pupils develop their international mindedness and respect for cultural diversity. Many of our pupils will make lifelong friendships with children from other countries and backgrounds. One of the strengths of the school is making sure the pupils are fully prepared and competent to meet the challenges of life in a dynamic world where change is the norm.

There is no doubt that the teachers and other classroom-based staff are the most important ingredient in a child’s success at school. Our teachers are carefully selected to ensure they are highly trained and have significant experience in delivering the various curricula we offer at the school. Our teachers undergo professional development to ensure they are providing the best experiences in the classrooms.

We value the development of our children outside the classroom and have a whole range of extra-curricular activities for pupils to develop their sporting and non-sporting interests. We have a number of well-developed programmes including Duke of Edinburgh International Award and Model United Nations. Evolution Sports run a paid activities programme on school premises which is accessible by our pupils.

We pride ourselves on the creation of a warm and caring atmosphere which we believe is the essential component in creating a happy yet challenging learning environment. If you come and visit us you will be warmly welcomed and we will be delighted to show you the amazing learning that takes place here.
