SHERBORNE Qatar Prep School is a British prep school in an international setting, offering an education based closely on British prep schools and the English National Curriculum. The language of instruction is English for all subjects except MFL.
The School covers Pre-School to Year 6 and provides pupils with an enhanced British curriculum in an environment which aims to provide children with a creative and inspiring learning experience which prepares them for life beyond school. The school attracts children both from the local and international communities. Our aim is to develop well-rounded pupils and nurture their potential, both inside and outside the classroom.
The Pre School has two forms but all other year groups consist of four forms and the year group staff work closely together to ensure that a rich and varied programme is in place. Most teaching takes place within form groups but specialist staff develop the children's skills in Music, Physical Education, Islamic Studies (for Muslim pupils) and languages. Year groups also work together for big projects, such as year group productions.
There is a maximum of eighteen children per class in Pre School, Reception and Year 1, twenty in Years 2 – 4 and twenty two in Years 5 – 6. Each class is staffed by a qualified British and British trained teacher. All Pre-School, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 forms have classroom as sistants and Years 3 – 6 share classroom assistants. Children are based in their own form rooms with their form teacher but make fu ll use of the school's facilities.
Pre School and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and Years 1– 6 follow the English National Curriculum. The classrooms and play areas are well equipped, vibrant, stimulating and cheerful and every classroom is fitted with an interactive whiteboard to enhance learning. Pupils have access to desktop computers, laptops and iPads, which are all used across the curriculum.
