Anne Harrison

Head of English and TOK Teacher

Having gained a degree in Language and Literature in Birmingham, I then did my PGCE and worked in two schools in the West Midlands. It has been a privilege to be in Doha at Compass International School for the last two years.


Deciding we needed a new challenge, my husband and I gained positions teaching purely ‘A’ Level in Malaysia. We then moved to Togo, where we returned to IGCSE and were introduced to the IB course, which we have both decided is the best preparation for students before university.  We have been fortunate to teach in Brazil, Namibia, Colombia, Vietnam and Nigeria, which has brought us in contact with fascinating and rich cultures. 

Compass International School is rapidly expanding, especially with offering the IB.  I would love to see our Year 12 and 13 students grow in maturity and gain outstanding results.

My favourite quote is: "All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players;

They have their exits and their entrances,

And one man in his time plays many parts,

His acts being seven ages." - William Shakespeare

What being ambitious means to me:  Make the most of the present, but don’t forget to reach for the future.
