King’s College, Doha opens its doors to pupils
King’s College, Doha opened its doors on Sunday, the Middle Eastern start of the working week, and is now providing high quality British education to families in Qatar. The new school has state of the art facilities in order to offer the best opportunities to the children now enrolled.
Due to an increasing population, King’s College, Doha will enable families to give their children a first class British education from an early age. The project is sponsored by Sheikh Mansoor bin Jassim bin Thani Al Thani, a member of the Qatar Royal Family and is in partnership with EduReach. EduReach have been exporting premium British education for several years and are highly experienced in founding British schools overseas and are responsible for the day to day running of the school. The Founding Principal of King’s College, Doha is Nicholas Gunn who brings over 25 years independent and international school teaching and leadership experience. Nicholas was previously Deputy Head at Makuhari International School in Japan. A former pupil of Brighton College, he was also Head of what is now Lancing Prep, Worthing, which is another Woodard School.
The school’s opening will in time offer an avenue by which King’s Hall School and King’s College, Taunton can continue to build a relationship with our overseas partners. Justin Chippendale, Headmaster of King’s Hall said: ‘We are so excited about the opening of King's College Doha. It comes as a result of a wonderful vision realised by the energy, enthusiasm and expertise of many incredible people. It has been a pleasure to work with Sheikh Mansoor Al Thani and EduReach Education to create this marvellous opportunity for children and families in Doha’.
