The Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar is a new school to Doha, although it is part of a family of schools which has been delivering exceptional education for hundreds of years. We have a long and distinguished history of providing academic excellence in the UK, dating back to 1509, through the Royal Grammar School, Guildford and the equally prestigious Lanesborough Preparatory School, also located in Guildford.
At the invitation of the Minister for Education and the Al Qamra Group, our sponsors, we are delighted to be bringing the Royal Grammar School, Guildford, to Qatar, as part of Qatar’s Outstanding Schools programme. We are extremely proud of the education we deliver and are honored to be given the opportunity to work with the Ministry of Education in Qatar to support Qatar’s National Vision for Education 2030.
The outstanding academic performance of our schools is justifiably well known; however, what sets us apart from other high achieving schools in the UK, is the warm and purposeful atmosphere within which all of our students can develop as successful, creative learners. Our philosophy is to provide a happy and supportive learning environment, from which our pupils leave the RGS family as respectful, confident and accomplished individuals, well prepared to take on the challenges in the next chapter of their education.
The Royal Grammar School, Guildford in Qatar will offer the extended British curriculum, developed by the RGS, along with the same opportunities, high standards and values for which our name has become synonymous. The school will open in September 2016 for children between three and six years of age and will be followed by the opening of our full prep school for the 2017- 2018 academic year. Our single-sex Senior Schools, up to age 18, also due to open in 2017, will allow our primary pupils to progress right through the RGS Guildford in Qatar and onto university.
