Doha College heralded a new era of British international education in Qatar with the opening of its brand new state-of-the-art campus in September this year.

The landmark moment was marked as an incredible feat especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The campus, located in Al Wajba close to Education City Golf Club, features impressive sporting, music and theatrical facilities, as well as modern classrooms, inspiring learning environments, fully-equipped science laboratories and more.

Celebrating their 40th anniversary, the British curriculum campus offering an outstanding education to students three to 18 years old, recently welcomed the delegation from the Ministry of Education for their first official visit to the new building.

Doha College Principal  Dr Steffen Sommer led the welcome of the officials and proudly showed off the facilities. The delegation was led by Omar Al Naama, Assistant Undersecretary for Private Education Affairs to the Office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Private Education and joined by Hamad Alghali, Director of Private Schools Licensing Department and Rashid Alamri, Acting Director for the Private Schools Affairs Department to the Office of the Assistant Undersecretary for Private Education.

Dr Sommer said they were all proud to show the new campus to the visitors, who were also very impressed with the facilities and with the students.

Our guests were able to view a number of classrooms, specialist areas such as Design and Technology, the Sciences and also some of Humanities, as well as Primary classes.

Dr Sommer said they also spent some time viewing the sports halls and various other facilities like the libraries. He said that the guests had a very good impression of the school, but what it certainly affirm is not only the long-standing friendship between Doha College and the Ministry of Education, but also with Qatar as a country.

Doha College has been in Qatar for 40 years, and this has been a close partnership from the beginning, being one of the first foreign schools that was founded in Qatar. With their fantastic new campus, the school opened a new chapter of the next 40 years of cooperation which will continue to grow with the facilities they now have.

We have many plans to support our local community here in Al Wajba, making facilities accessible and I am very much looking forward to the next few decades of partnership and friendship with Qatar.

Al Naama said their visit to the new Doha College school campus at Al Wajba was a fruitful visit. He said that the new campus is definitely a great achievement added to the many other achievements in the field of education in Qatar, in line with the country’s National Vision 2030.

It is a valuable addition and a helpful contribution to the national efforts to achieve quality education in the country and we will always provide support to all private schools in Qatar, to sustain the best educational environment for school students.
