Park House English School is a vibrant, international school with much to offer your child. Outstanding, dedicated staff are committed to ensuring that your child develops a love of learning and acquires the skills and knowledge they need for their future.

We have a rich history and excellent reputation – we’re celebrating 30 years of exceptional education

Park House English School was founded in Doha in 1994. Through our rich history, our long-standing excellent reputation, our many years of commitment to high-quality education, and our hard work by all members of staff, we are proudly considered to be one of the most prestigious British schools in Qatar, with places highly sought after in every year group.

We hold a number of international accreditations and accolades

Park House English School is a proud accredited member of a number of international British educational bodies, including British Schools Middle East (BSME), British Schools Overseas (BSO), and the University of Cambridge. We are also a member of the Qatar Supreme Council of Education.

We’re also one of the few secondary schools in Doha to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, a youth awards programme founded in the UK that recognises adolescents and young adults for completing a series of self-improvement exercises, and Edexcel, a multinational education and examination body that regulates school examinations under the British Curriculum.

International Schools Partnership (“iSP”)

We are proud to be part of International Schools Partnership (iSP), a global community of 80+ schools across 22 countries with a shared purpose of growing the world’s most curious, confident minds.

We champion a transformative approach to learning that goes beyond the classroom.

By igniting our students’ curiosity and growing their self-confidence, our students thrive throughout their time at school and beyond.

High-Quality Learning is central to everything we do

We nurture the best learning environment for your child, so that your child feels safe, valued and happy, to ensure they make as much progress as possible. For High-Quality Learning to take place we expect to see:
• Our students being challenged, so they have high expectations of what they can achieve
• Our students acquiring new knowledge and skills through expert explanation, and learning how to apply the knowledge and skills through highly effective modelling
• Students thinking hard with breadth, depth and accuracy through expert questioning
• Students engaging in deliberate practice and developing their independent learning skills
• Students provided with and acting upon appropriate feedback so they think about and further develop their knowledge and skills

Our teachers care, are highly experienced and passionate about education

Park House English School believes teachers and other classroom-based staff are the most important ingredient in a child’s success at school. All teaching staff are fully qualified and the majority are UK trained with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). Many members of staff hold Masters degree certificates in their subject specialism.

Park House teachers are carefully selected to ensure they are highly trained and have significant experience in delivering the various curricula on offer at the school. Our teachers undergo professional development to ensure they are providing the best experiences in the classrooms.

Some teachers have been at Park House for as long as 14 years. We really look after our teachers – the accommodation and facilities our teachers have is wonderful, which means they’re happy, and they stay because they’re happy, and this transcends to how they are with our children as well.

We will continue to commit to really looking after our teachers, as we believe this is a key differentiator that truly attracts (and retains) the best calibre staff.
