Primary Overview

QIS Primary accommodates children from Foundation Stage 1 to Year 6 (ages 3 – 11). The school teaches the British National Curriculum for England and Wales, with the addition of Qatar’s Ministry of Education mandated subjects (Arabic, Islamic Studies and Qatari History).

Within the Primary School buildings, there are designated classrooms for class teachers and their registration groups, organised in Year Groups. There are also specialist teaching rooms for ICT, Music, Arabic B (for non-native Arabic speakers) and Islamic Studies B (for non-native Arabic speakers) and a Primary Library. Primary pupils also enjoy access to designated PE facilities (including swimming pool), playground areas, garden and cafeteria on our custom built campus.
