Ages 5 TO 11


Our primary school curriculum establishes the building blocks for the future. Challenging and fun activities stimulate curious minds, developing literacy, numeracy, and social skills. And in our world-class teaching environments, your child will embrace new interests and develop a real love for learning. 

Our primary curriculum

At Compass, our students follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). In 2019, we were one of the first schools in the Qatar to be accredited by the IPC for the quality of our provision.

Your child will explore the wonders of reading, writing and maths, as well as art, history, geography, music, sport, technology and science. Outstanding teachers make sure every student is supported and included, and bring learning to life through trips, collaborations and extra-curricular activities.


Years 1 and 2

Our children study Units of Work, which last three to six weeks. Going at their own pace, your child will explore exciting themes that span traditional subjects. This creative approach helps students to grow both academically and personally, and encourages them to see the world as an inspiring blend of experiences and cultures. Your child will also discover the joys of music, drama and PE, supported by specialist teachers.


Years 3 and 4

In Years 3 and 4, we encourage our children to become independent learners. Students develop their reading and comprehension skills, and collaborate on projects that inspire a love of new discoveries. They’ll also perform in class and school assemblies, building their confidence and public speaking skills.


Years 5 and 6

Our curriculum teaches students about local and global cultures, broadening their horizons. Working with students around the world on our Global Campus learning platform – and taking part in house challenges – your child will become an assured young leader.

All our primary year groups follow Ministry of Education programmes in Arabic, Islamic studies and Qatari history.


Our world-class teachers create tailored pathways that will ignite your child's curiosity, cultivating a love of learning and unlocking their full potential.
