Sherborne Qatar is the only overseas school owned and developed by Sherborne School, an historic and distinguished British school founded in 1550 under a royal charter. Our ethos, outlook and standards are based on those of Sherborne School and we will continue to build successfully so that our pupils can fulfil their ambitions in an increasingly changing and technological age.
Sherborne Qatar aspires to offer an all-round education with a strong academic focus, which, in the Prep School, prepares pupils for entry into Sherborne Qatar or Sherborne School; and, in the Senior School, for entry into the world's leading universities.
We firmly believe that the best and most rewarding learning happens when pupils are encouraged to be actively curious, flexible and open-minded; and when they are participating in, and shaping, their own learning.
We know that learning does not happen only in the classroom. Our pastoral care is an education in itself because it fosters the core values of our community and actively seeks to develop the personal, emotional and social skills of each and every one of our pupils. Furthermore, on the sports field, on the stage, in the art rooms and in the community at large, Qatar Shirburnians are learning all the time as they strive for excellence in all that they do.
We want to equip pupils to continue learning for themselves long after they have left school.
The Sherborne Qatar school community seeks to be not only close-knit and supportive, but also dynamic and outward-looking. Qatar Shirburnians should leave us having developed a clear sense of how to be successful and with lasting friendships built in a happy and caring school.
