My name is Paul Summers and I have 23 years’ experience in teaching and leadership. I have previously taught both History and PE in some excellent schools. My teaching and coaching career has taken me to the UK, Australia, USA, Thailand, Spain and now Qatar.
For the last 20 years I have been leading large departments either as Head of PE or Director of Sport. The main sport I am passionate about is football which I played semi-professionally for over 15 years. Once I stopped playing I gained my UEFA coaching qualifications and have worked with professional clubs in the UK. Some achievements that I am very proved of are my Under 14 boys team being crowned Champions of ESFA in England, my Under 15 team in Thailand being crowned Champions of FOBISIA in Asia and my Under 18 team in Spain winning the ISAA football in Europe.
I love to travel and as well working around the globe, I have been lucky to visit over 80 countries and hope to get up to 100 in next few years. I moved to Doha with my wife and two children aged 7 and 8 who currently attend Rayyan campus.
I hope to bring my experience to Compass International School and to help develop the PE curriculum and bring success to the sports teams.
