At Compass, we have a strong tradition of competing in national sports tournaments and leagues across the country – including the British International School Qatar Games and the Qatar Private Primary School Sport Association (QPPSSA). This gives our students the chance to shine, putting their skills to the test against other international schools in the region.

We want every child to find something they enjoy, get active, and try new activities. All our students have access to our outstanding sports facilities, which include a 25m swimming pool, all-weather pitch, basketball court and sports hall.

The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

As part of our commitment to truly personalised learning, we encourage our students to take part in The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. Through the Award, each student sets their own goals and challenges. They can choose to do what they know and enjoy or try something different.

As they progress through each stage of the Award, students develop resilience, learn more about themselves, and grow in confidence. This complements their learning inside the classroom, bringing together real-life experiences with softer skills that create open-minded global citizens.

Local excursions

We encourage our students to learn about local culture through our partnerships with the Ministry of Education and Qatar Museums.

Trips to museums bring history to life, adding a real-world dimension to subjects including art and geography. Our students can also follow native and non-native Arabic language programmes, which gives them a real understanding of and appreciation for local life.

A highlight for many of our students is our residential adventure camp. Getting out into the Qatari desert, our students take part in team building activities that boost their confidence and resilience.
