We understand that families may relocate to Doha throughout the year, and we are pleased to accept pupils at most times during the academic year.
However, it's important to note that all schools in Qatar adhere to the regulations set by the Ministry for Education and Higher Education of the State of Qatar.
If these regulations are likely to impact your child's entry at the time of your application, we will provide you with the necessary guidance and advice.

We are dedicated to ensuring a seamless enrolment process for all families, providing the necessary support every step of the way.
For Pre-School and Reception pupils, we implement a staggered start or shorter day initially to facilitate a smooth transition. Parents will be promptly informed of their child's specific schedule to ensure a comfortable adjustment period.
Parents of pupils in the examination years (Years 11, 12 & 13) should take note that certain external examinations will be scheduled on Fridays, during Ramadan, and national holidays. These examinations may continue until the 28th of June 2024. We kindly request that you refrain from making any travel arrangements during these periods to avoid conflicts.
Please be aware that Sherborne Qatar reserves the right to make adjustments to dates when necessary. Rest assured, we will make every effort to provide ample notice for any changes that may arise.
