About International School of London Doha

Welcome to ISL Qatar. Ours is a school which values the personal attention which can only be achieved in an environment where:


  • Teachers know students well as individuals.
  • Each child is welcomed into the classroom in their own language.
  • English classes and a variety of social events are available for parents.
  • All cultures are celebrated and nurtured in a lively international community.


The mother tongue and foreign languages, small class sizes and academic provision within a positive learning environment have been recognized in recent IB reports and visits.

ISL Qatar is a friendly school that is small enough to ensure each child is a respected individual, yet large enough to support a vibrant and active international community.

The ISL Schools Group began in 1972 when the International School of London was founded as a private co-educational school. It was one of the first schools to offer the IB Diploma, graduating its first Diploma students in 1978. It now offers the IB Primary and Middle Years programmes in addition to the IB Diploma and is especially well known for its world language programmes. Students receive mother tongue or foreign language literacy lessons from early childhood as part of the curriculum. Because of the strength of its languages programme, ISL was selected by Qatar's Supreme Education Council to open a school in Doha as part of the Outstanding Schools initiative. Continuing its expansion, ISL was chosen by Shell to acquire the Surrey-situated Prins Willem Alexander School which, at the time, was the highest performing Dutch school in the world. The ISL Schools now enrol over 1200 students across their three campuses in Chiswick, West London; Woking, Surrey; and Doha, Qatar.
