Compass International School Doha (CISD) is delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Holyome as their new principal. This news follows the promotion of Dr Terry Creissen OBE to Managing Director of Nord Anglia Education India. Holyome will start his new position over the summer of 2019 in anticipation of the 2019/20 academic year.
Holyome began his teaching career in England and went on to become head teacher at Swanmore Middle School and Vice Principal of Ryde Academy, both on the Isle of Wight. In 2007, he was awarded the National Professional Qualification for Headship.
He is joining CISD from a successful role as principal at The British School Yangon, which is also part of the Nord Anglia Education family of schools. Prior to that, he was principal at the Nord Anglia’s British Vietnamese International School in Ho Chi Minh City, which, through his leadership, is now one of the most successful bilingual schools in the city.
CISD is extending its warmest of welcomes to Holyome on behalf of students, parents and team. The school is sure that Holyome will be an exceptional leader for the school community across the four campuses.
CISD would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Terry Creissen OBE for his incredible contribution to the school community and to recognise the tremendous impact he has had as Executive Principal. During the five years of his tenure in Doha, Dr Creissen has been instrumental in ensuring Compass International School Doha is one of the leading schools in Qatar. He leaves behind a legacy of ambitious development, most notably the expansion to a fourth campus, Themaid. Compass International School Doha would not be where it is today without Dr Creissen’s leadership, effort and enthusiasm.
