Embarking on their Secondary School career, students build on skills developed in Primary School, with a particular emphasis on metacognition and their personal approach to independent learning.  

The Secondary curriculum spans Years 7 to 13, providing students with structured and assessed education in core subjects, including English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Modern Foreign Languages, Design and Technology, Art and Design, Music and Physical Education. This curriculum ensures that students acquire essential knowledge in core subjects and develop skills crucial for lifelong benefit. The curriculum also supports students’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development. 

Qatar History, Arabic language and Islamic Studies

All Secondary School students at Queen’s Qatar study Qatar History (Years 7-9), while Arabic students (Years 7-12) receive instruction in Arabic language and Islamic Studies, according to Qatar’s MOEHE requirements.

Alongside regular classes, pupils receive Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), study skills, life skills, as well as career advice during daily form time. This comprehensive framework prepares young people for future academic, personal and professional success.
At the end of Year 11, students sit the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations. With guidance from academic counsellors, students select the most suitable IGCSE and A Level subjects.
