Madinat Khalifa Secondary Headlines Report | Monday, 17 June 2019

Dear Parents,

We have had a full week of celebration. 

Year 11 completed their last formal GCSE exams and we held the graduation and prom at the W Hotel in West Bay.  The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award also held a celebration evening that was very well attended, with our guest speaker the Deputy Head of Mission British Embassy Doha, H.E. Peter Chamberlain MBE. Over 94 students have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award this year.  It is nearly 50% of those students eligible.  This morning we waved au revoir to a group of students through passport control for their Gold Adventurous Journey to Dartmoor in the United Kingdom.  When the students achieve this, they will be invited to Buckingham Palace to receive their award.

It was upon reflecting for the speeches for the two events above, that I came up with our ‘Compass Bearings’ – please see a summary below.  These are the traits that we give the students that I feel make our school special.  I am looking to develop these further next year to emphasise the opportunity that the students are given.  We are not a school that simply relies on the academics, we are a community that builds strong academic rigour and also students with character.  Looking at the students that have graduated in Year 11 and 13, I was extremely proud of what they have accomplished and will go on to accomplish and create.  I spoke about leaders that are able to inspire, not manipulate.  I strongly believe the two cohorts that have just left have the skills necessary to succeed, not just the subject knowledge.  Recently I showed a student a photo of a floppy disc and asked them what it was.  They replied ‘the save button on a computer'.  It struck me that though technology changes, pedagogy changes and the jobs in the world change, we are still able to set these young people up to be successful with the skills and attributes to succeed no matter how much change is to come.

  • Mastery Curriculum by Subject Specialists

Our curriculum design enables students to develop a framework of knowledge and understanding in each subject area that provides a solid foundation for further study.

  • High-Quality Teaching

Teachers are subject experts with an excellent understanding of the intellectual journey they are taking their students on and master the teaching skills to support this.

  • Character and Leadership Development

Students develop the characteristics that support their academic achievement, create thoughtful citizens and allow them to make reflective choices over their personal lives.

  • Aspirations and Enrichment

Students develop their passions and interests through an extensive enrichment programme.

Yours sincerely

Tom Douch

Head of Secondary, Madinat Khalifa Campus
