SEK International School Qatar is located in the prominent West Bay area, on Al Farouq Street in Doha, Qatar. Our aim at SEK International Schools is to provide a high quality international education through the development of our students’ abilities to the highest level of their potential.
Established in 1892, SEK International Schools are places where innovation and education leadership are combined with 125 years of tradition and history to offer educational programmes unlike any others.
It is the mission of SEK International School to provide an all-round education and the development of each student’s individual gifts in full. The core of the SEK profile is to prepare our students to be able to steer their own future and to become lifelong learners. We aim for our students to understand that serving and caring for others brings the highest rewards in life while ensuring that they become skilled and balanced 21st century citizens.
SEK International Schools have a clear vision: to consistently provide high-quality education to an international community of students in order to prepare them to become responsible and productive global citizens who actively contribute to the communities where they live and work.
SEK International Schools have a rich 125-year history and tradition of pedagogical innovation and leadership in Spain and worldwide. That is why we offer educational programmes unlike any other.
Beginning after the break for Eid Al-Adha, SEK International School Qatar will offer a complete range of extracurricular activities, as part of its holistic approach to the intellectual, social and physical development of students.
Currently, our staff is preparing an attractive variety of options which we want to tailor to the particular needs and interests of our school community once our inaugural school year has started.
Sports are an essential aspect of the educational model at SEK International Schools.
SEK International School Qatar sports facilities includes a multipurpose indoor sports hall where our students can practice football, basketball and volleyball amongst other activities, as well as outdoor football, basketball and volleyball courts.
The three IB® programmes, from 3 to 18 years old.
SEK International School Qatar is an IB World School authorised to offer three IB Programmes – the Primary Years Programme (PYP) the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the Diploma Programme (DP).
Central to the philosophy of the PYP is the principle that purposeful, structured inquiry is a powerful vehicle for learning that promotes meaning and understanding, and challenges students to engage with significant ideas. Therefore, in the PYP there is also a commitment to a concept-driven curriculum as a means of supporting that inquiry.
Consequently, SEK International School Qatar students will be drawing on a variety of sources of knowledge and ideas, some of which may be traditional textbooks.
In the PYP, we believe that:
SEK International School Qatar students will be drawing on a variety of sources of knowledge and ideas for their inquiries, including websites, library resources, textbooks, and members of the school community. Learning at SEK International School Qatar is transdisciplinary, with a unit of inquiry covering all curriculum areas, enabling our students to gain a deep understanding of all concepts being covered.
IB MYP provides a framework of learning that encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The MYP emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement—essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
The MYP builds upon the knowledge, skills and attitudes developed in the IB PYP and prepares students to meet future academic challenges, including the IB DP and the IB CP.
All students in MYP year 5 must complete the Personal Project, a self-directed inquiry demonstrating the skills, attitudes and knowledge acquired during their MYP years.
In the final year of MYP year 5 students undertake external assessment. MYP eAssessments in the MYP focus on conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge in complex, unfamiliar situations. They offer robust and reliable assessment of student achievement in the MYP.
No two students are the same. The admissions process seeks in-depth knowledge of the interests and needs of both the student and their family. In this way, the best itinerary is established for each student and their degree of connection with the SEK educational model is established.
There are limited places, ready for students willing to give their best for themselves and their learning community.
