Why choose AWIS?

A small school with a big heart!

Choosing a school is hard!

The quantity and quality of information available varies from school to school, making direct comparisons difficult. At the end of the day, the "right" choice depends upon your own personal priorities, first impressions of the environment and the quality of the staff, and of course word-of-mouth.

Reasons to Choose AWIS

We believe AWIS is worthy of inclusion on any shortlist of schools to consider in detail. Below are just some of the factors that make us stand out from the crowd:


Caring & Supportive Environment

The ethos of AWIS is to create an enjoyable, open and collaborative environment where children, their families and staff feel secure, valued, confident and independent. We work closely with our parents to forge a strong home/school relationship through effective communication to ensure the needs of students are consistently met.

Visit us to experience the caring, family-friendly environment for yourself!


Truly International Education

We provide a truly international learning environment, with over 50 nationalities represented across the student body and no one nationality dominating. International mindedness is a specific personal learning goal for all students.


Exciting Curriculum

First and foremost, we follow a UK-style curriculum. However, we additionally use the International Primary Curriculum (which is also used by over 200 schools in the UK) to ensure a modern, child-centered approach to learning that is integrated across subjects.


Value for money

School fees in Doha vary tremendously - however, be warned that high fees are not necessarily an indicator of high academic standards!

At approximately QR31,000 per year (see our school fees page for details), our fees are very modest by both Qatar and UK/international standards.

The highest cost for any school is driven by the quality of the staff. Any visit to AWIS will quickly assure you that our teaching staff are world-class, motivated and well-led. See the report on our latest TIMMS results (a worldwide benchmarking study) for an example of AWIS academic achievement.

Our classrooms are light and airy, playgrounds are shaded, and we have plenty of greenery and open space for the children to play: a delightful environment for Primary School students (ages 3 to 11 years old) to study, play and develop.

Why not contact us to arrange a visit, so you can see for yourself?

The best decision we made for our son. We are very happy with the school and it houses a lovely team of hardworking and friendly teachers as well as other staff. Our son loves going to school. As a Montessori teacher I have recommended AWIS countless times to my parents as the next step for their children and will continue to do so.

This is a fantastic school. My older boy finished year 6 last year and I still have another boy there at year 3. The school used to be very good from its very beginning but the performance of the school after the blended education is excellent . Well done AWIS. After the online experience I believe the size of school doesn't matter: I believe the management of the school is the key to success. the environment of the school is very warm and friendly. All the teachers who teach/taught my kids are excellent. we all love AWIS.
