Message from the Principal

Terry McGuire - Terry McGuire

It is a great privilege to be the Principal of Doha British School. I have known this school since it was founded in 1997 and have watched it grow and develop into a 3 to 18 school (pre-school to IB Diploma) serving the needs of a diverse community. Economic growth and development in Qatar are rapid. The rate of change here reflects that of the global economy.

It is our fundamental responsibility to equip our children to thrive in a world that we can’t predict, anticipate or understand. In order to do so we will ensure that all of our children are regarded as unique, each with different abilities, strengths, attributes and characteristics.They will be challenged to achieve the very best that they possibly can.

A significant strength of this school is the exceptional relationship enjoyed between governors, management, teachers, parents and pupils.
