Doha College new team

To help strengthen its pivotal role in the international education in Qatar, Doha College has recently appointed two experienced and very skilled education professionals to join its leadership team. Ruth Sanderson and Grant Gillies have joined the school’s leadership team, bringing with them unique talents and valuable experiences gained from reputable institutions around the world.  

The new Leadership Team now consists of James Conly, Vice Principal – Student Welfare, Grant Gillies, Senior Vice Principal and Head of Primary, Nicola Meikle, Assistant Principal – Transition, Uzma Zaffar, Assistant Principal – Assessment and Admissions, Dr Steffen Sommer, Principal, Neil Thomas, Vice Principal – Teaching and Learning, Ruth Sanderson, Senior Vice Principal and Head of Secondary, Ian Thornhill, Business and Development Director.

Each member of the leadership group has taken on, in addition to the roles reflected in their official titles, responsibilities for other diverse segments of school life, which will help integrate the Primary and Secondary Schools, organically.

Dr Steffen Sommer welcomed the new team and said he was delighted that Doha College has identified such a broad range of talent and experience, and that they have found a way to put it all together in a group that is strong, motivated and will work resolutely for the benefit of students and the wider community here in Qatar.

Doha College is enjoying a tremendous momentum, having achieved a string of successes: it has become the first school in the world to be accredited as a High Performance Learning (HPL) school; it has also begun the construction of its new, state-of-the-art campus in Al Wajba; and it has just scored another record round of examination results.
