Global expeditions

Our incredible citizenship trip to Arusha, Tanzania teaches students about global responsibility and sustainability, and the important role we play in looking after our planet. Working with locals on a variety of projects, students develop a sense of independence, increase their understanding of the world, and learn the importance of being part of a community.

The personal challenge expedition in Les Martinets, Switzerland, encourages our students to push themselves to their limits. Set in the beautiful Swiss Alps, students hike through the mountains and take on a series of challenges. Students also learn important skills – like cooking and working together under pressure – while creating treasured memories that will stay with them forever.

Residential trips

Our immersive expeditions in Qatar add an exciting element to our students’ education.

Through The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award, for example, our secondary learners enjoy a range of unique experiences, including camping in the desert and skippering a sailboat. And our younger students head out on adventure camps with friends, where they hone their survival skills, enjoy water sports, and discover the wonders of local geology.

We organise a range of educational trips across Qatar. Each one is carefully planned to broaden perspectives and add a real-world perspective to your child’s learning.

These include presenting the news at a national media agency and taking part in debates at the National Library. Your child will form meaningful community connections, too, cleaning local beaches and delivering food parcels during the holy month of Ramadan.

Our students take part in national art competitions, dance challenges, maths Olympiads, and Qatar Private Primary School Sports Association tournaments. They also relish the opportunity to represent our school at high profile occasions, like the 2022 World Cup.
