Welcome to Qatar International School

Vision and Mission Statement

Our Vision:  “Aspiring to Excellence; Building Futures; Celebrating Diversity.”

The ABC of Qatar International School is a motto that underpins all the work carried out at QIS that will lead us to becoming the best school in Qatar. Through high quality teaching and learning we will establish ourselves at the heart of our community locally, nationally and internationally. QIS will be recognised for its excellent work in all areas of international education and for its focus on ‘learning comes first.’ Everyone who belongs to QIS is a learner. The only distinction is where each of us is at on our learning journey. In order to achieve this we will strive to become: Read more

  • An outstanding educational provider where each and every learner will be challenged and given the opportunity to flourish and develop their full potential. All learners will aspire to excellence and in so doing will be supported fully by a school that caters for all needs and abilities.
  • A safe, caring and secure school where every person matters. We will be recognised for the outstanding nature of our care, guidance and support to staff, students and parents. Quality mentoring will be available to all, underpinning our investment in people.
  • An institution where learning comes first and will be the sole focus of all lessons with a constant emphasis on maximising learning time and potential. Fundamental learning skills amongst all students will be a key foundation to developing life-long learning, which will be transferable to all lessons and situations. Everyone, adults and students alike, is on a learning journey which has been personalised, routed and mapped out just for them. This will be evidenced by an innovative professional development programme and forward looking curriculum, which will empower all learners and encourage them to be active, independent participants in the learning process.
  • A college where students’ thoughtful behaviour is the outstanding contributory factor to their successful learning. Positive behaviours are recognised, encouraged and rewarded in support of the QIS ethos. This will be modelled and exemplified by all stakeholders to ensure others do the same.
  • An international community of learners where achievement and attainment are valued and celebrated in a ‘can do’ culture and all forms of prejudice are challenged. Aspiration and ambition are the norm and high expectations are met with pride and a sense of achievement.
  • A centre of excellence and specialism for the English curriculum in an international context. A school where standards, rigour and accountability will stand comparison with the best schools in the UK and abroad.

Our Core Values are:

  • Caring for each other in a safe environment
  • Respect and equality for all
  • Working together to learn better
  • Equipping people for life
  • Taking pleasure in learning
  • Being healthy, happy and feeling valued
