Leading global education group Carfax Education announced the launch of the fourth annual schools index, a list of 125 best private schools in the world. 

Categorised by region, prospective parents and pupils can now access a list of the top 125 schools for 2023 across the UK, Switzerland, Europe, USA, Middle East, China, Southeast Asia and the rest of the world, chosen by expert education consultants at Carfax Education.

As well as formal criteria such as academic results and preparation for university entry, schools are ranked on their unique ethos, their reputation both locally and internationally, and how adequately they prepare students for life beyond academia. The guide provides a comprehensive overview of curriculum and fees as well as practical information such as travel times to local airports.

The only school in Qatar to make it to the list

According to the new Doha College Principal David Tongue, it is wonderful to see Doha College as the only school in Qatar to again be ranked as one of the very best private schools in the world in the prestigious School’s Index by Carfax Education.

He said that to see Doha College ranked alongside other leading schools – including Eton College, Harrow and Wellington College in the UK – is a testament to the outstanding work going on within each and every classroom. He added that a recent analysis of their academic outcomes puts them right at the top of the Middle Eastern category in terms of results at both (I)GCSE and A Level for comparable three to 18 schools that made the list.

Doha College’s success in being the best of the very best is a direct result of the exceptional staff who work within the school and the students they educate.

I would like to dedicate this achievement to their combined hard work and dedication. It is also pleasing to see my former school (St George’s in Rome) make the European list, and I also pass on my congratulations to all my former colleagues and students.

Collated by Carfax Education experts on the ground across the world, the index is the most comprehensive global list available. Open this link to find out more about the Carfax Education Schools index.
