    Carl Broome

    PE Curriculum Leader

    Carl Broome

    I graduated from Staffordshire University with a 2:1 in BSc Sports Studies, which I followed up with a PGCE in Physical Education. This led to working in the English education system as a PE teacher for seven years, where I took on additional roles such as Head of Boys PE and Head of Sixth Form. I am also qualified to coach a variety of different sports.

    Following my time in the UK, I moved to Qatar to accept a job offer from Aspire Academy. I worked for Aspire in the Multi-Skill Sport Development department as a Head Coach where I helped to identify and develop the most talented youngsters in Qatar towards a future in sport.

    Aimee Price

    PE Teacher

    Aimee Price

    I studied Sport, Physical Education and Coaching Science at the University of Birmingham where I graduated with first class honours, and following this, I completed my PGCE at the West Midlands Consortium and graduated as an ‘outstanding’ teacher. Since the age of fourteen, I knew I wanted to become a PE teacher as I have always had a passion for taking part in and following a variety of sports; my main sport now being netball that I play three times a week. Staying fit and healthy is also another personal interest of mine. 


    Growing up as the oldest of four siblings taught me to become responsible, driven and also competitive due to the natural environment of growing up in a large family. I am loyal, committed and compassionate as an individual, and endeavour to develop all of the above characteristics in the young people whom I teach along their journey to becoming adults of the future.

    ALN-EAL Teacher

    Lucy Diraviam

    My name is Lucy Diraviam and I am looking forward to joining the ALN department this year. With my dad and 6 out of his 7 daughters all being teachers, I literally grew up using a chalk more than anything else at home. Maybe this is the reason why I am so passionate about teaching.

    I have a total of 23 years of teaching experience, most of which has been of high school Science and Computer Science teaching. My pastoral contributions to schools that I have worked in have been in roles as Student Counsellor, Head of House, House Tutor with a core competency area of ‘Community Service and Student Leadership’. I am also a certified International Award-Duke of Edinburgh Award Leader and was actively involved in walking expeditions for the Silver award program during my time at Al Khor International School.

    Dowaa Razin

    Primary Art and Design Teacher

    Dowaa Razin

    I began my career in education as a Learning Support Assistant at a school in London, which encouraged me to pursue teaching as a career. The reason behind this is simple: I love children and I enjoy working with them.

    My academic qualifications include a Post Graduate Certificate in Art, Craft and Design Education from the University of Greenwich (UK) and a Bachelor's degree in Art/Graphics Design from London Metropolitan University (UK). My teaching practices, which have taken place in different types of schools in the UK, as well as my most recent post at Cambridge International school in Qatar, gave me excellent opportunities to teach in classrooms where I gained experience working with young people from a wide range of different backgrounds, experiences, aptitudes and needs. There have been several achievements in my teaching career including being involved in coordinating successful art events and participating students in various art competitions in my previous teaching practices.
