Key Stage 1 and 2:
Ages 5-11 years

As children progress into Key Stage 1, a seamless transition occurs as we align with the National Curriculum for England. Teachers work together to provide continuous support and thoughtfully selected provocations to spark exploration and engagement during these years. 

Our forward-thinking thematic primary curriculum, Learning Means the World, is underpinned by four highly relevant world issues, known as the four C’s: culture, communication, conflict and conservation. Students are guided to lead their own learning through enquiry, developing important life skills and problem-solving abilities. The curriculum encompasses the foundation subjects, including English, Mathematics, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Education and Computing. 

As children move into the second phase of their primary education (Key Stage 2), we continue our focus of developing our children’s personal skills, ensuring that they develop into independent learners and critical thinkers.

Following the White Rose Maths scheme, renowned for its mastery development, students are supported by a fluency support scheme that ensures they become competent in maths and have an excellent understanding of how to implement it in the real world.
Through the Oxford Reading Tree programme and a whole class guided reading approach, students learn reading skills through a variety of text types. The library’s reading books are available for children to take home and to practice reading skills and strategies with their families.
Students study a variety of texts, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry, learning the important purposes, structures and processes behind writing. They learn the spelling, grammar and punctuation skills relevant to their stage of learning, with an emphasis on developing practical skills in drafting, editing and publishing.

Digital skills are an important part of the future-forward curriculum at Queen’s Qatar. Students learn how to use technology effectively and securely within the digital age. The programme encompasses computer skills, coding and digital safety.


Queen’s state-of-the-art facilities enable students to experience a broad and varied sports and activities curriculum focused on the development of fundamental movement skills, fine and gross motor skills, coordination and communication. The PE curriculum progressively builds key knowledge, skills and techniques which, combined with varied and flexible teaching styles, provides stimulating, challenging and enjoyable learning opportunities for pupils.

Our commitment to Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Qatar History continues, embracing the rich tapestry of our cultural education.
