Dear Parents

Welcome to Compass International School Doha, Gharaffa Campus.  It is my great privilege and honour to lead such an outstanding school which aims to ensure that your child has the very best start to their academic career.

Selecting a private school for your children is one of the most critical decisions a parent will make, therefore it is important that parents make the right choice.  It is extremely important that parents identify a school which offers an education which will open doors; is recognised for its academic success and is able to offer a full curriculum which develops the whole child.

As you can see from our website and Facebook page, Compass offers a forward-thinking, diverse curriculum, promoting the critical skills required for success in the ever-changing world that our children are entering. Our goal is to ensure that every child has a unique learning experience that is both dynamic and relevant. Our talented, committed and engaged staff inspire students to recognise their interests and talents from an early age.

Unlike other schools in Doha, the school not only offers exceptional teaching in the International Curriculum, a curriculum which is recognised worldwide but also offers the following programmes:

The New York Juilliard Music and Performing Arts programme will transform your child’s education, promoting cultural literacy, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.  Juilliard will nurture your child’s artistic values whilst promoting confidence and raising self-esteem.

The school also offers the Massachusetts Institute of Technology programme (MIT), where the children develop critical 21st Century skills, advancing their knowledge in Science and Technology plus other fields.

From the very moment your child enters our school, they will become a part of our Global campus, interacting and competing with students from 43 Nord Anglia schools worldwide. The children are also instantly slotted into a House Team, earning points which are added to our Class Dojo system.  The school also benefits from giving the children a voice via the School Council, who meet weekly to discuss the school and how it could be better improved for the students. We also have teams of children who are Eco Warriors and others who work within the Global Campus, promoting activities.

When choosing a school, it is essential that you feel valued and listened to.  Our school is a family of dedicated professionals who promise to equip your child with the skills necessary for an unpredictable future. If you are interested in working alongside the school, we have a Friends of Compass (FCS) group which meets monthly, running events which will bring our community together.

Our school and programmes promise to inspire lifelong passions. These programmes, our academic performance and our wonderful family community set us above any other school in Qatar. By joining us at Compass, Gharaffa you have made the right choice.

We look forward to welcoming you to our diverse and vibrant community.

Kind regards,

Karen Wilson

Head of Compass, Gharaffa.
