During the many stages of our educational journey, we have to make significant decisions that will shape our future and the opportunity to find success.
Here at Compass International School Doha, we have groups of students and parents making significant choices across the different age groups. At present, our Year 6 students are looking forward to beginning their Secondary School journey with us in September. Year 9 students have made the important decision regarding their IGCSE subject choices for the next academic year. Year 11 are also deciding which subjects they will study at Higher Level or Standard Level within our excellent IB Diploma Programme and, finally, our Year 13 students are now receiving offers from Universities. They have to carefully consider all aspects of each university, and make the right decision as to where they will continue their under-graduate educational journey.
At every stage, we are here to offer support and guidance to our students and parents ensuring good choices are made. Year 6 students are being fully supported through the transition programme, including our very first Secondary Showcase Open Day on Saturday, 1 April. This will then be consolidated by spending time in Secondary School during Term 3. Year 9 and Year 11 have had support from their Tutors and teachers when exploring subject option choices. Support with university applications have helped students’ produce, well written personal statements to give depth to every application. At every decision milestone, we encourage our students to be ambitious and to have high expectations for themselves and their futures.
We as a school, could not be as effective without support from home. We are lucky to have supportive parents, who are committed to working in partnership with us to make Compass International School Doha be the very best it can be. This has been demonstrated as we look to provide our parents with many opportunities to come into school and offer their opinion and support through our series of Parent Forums, specialist curriculum evenings and parents’ consultation events.
Within our Compass Model of Success, we believe that with consistent and appropriate support, high levels of success will be found.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you at our Open Day on Saturday.
Head of Secondary
