Executive Principal Winter Message Executive Principal, Paul Holyome's end of year message.

Dear families of Compass International School Doha,


We have reached the end of 2021. A year in which our students experienced virtual learning, blended learning and on-campus learning. The resilience and attitudes that our students have shown over the last number of months has been truly impressive. I wanted to personally thank our families, teachers, administrative staff, and all stakeholders for continuing to provide our students with the very best environment to develop.


There have been several milestones reached over the past year across our four campuses. I am delighted to announce that our Madinat Khalifa campus has recently received its QNSA status for a further three years. The Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) were present on-site between the 19th – 23rd of September and have commented on the campuses continuous improvements and its clear and comprehensive objectives which are in line with state directives. Gharaffa already had their QNSA inspection, and we are waiting on the results. Initial verbal feedback from the inspectors were positive.

May I take this opportunity to thank all those existing parents who took the time to complete our parent satisfaction survey this year. Satisfaction levels here at Compass International School Doha are very good and in many aspects of the school the satisfaction of parents was over 90%. As a group of four campuses, there are always areas to improve and work on, but I am delighted to see that the main areas of very good satisfaction relate to the learning and achievement of students. Please click on the link below for a summary of the report.
