Nursery & Reception:
Ages 2 - 5 years

At Queen’s Qatar, we recognise the significance of early experiences for our youngest learners. From the outset of their journey with us, children are immersed in world of play, discovery and learning. Our Foundation Stage school encompasses a Nursery (2-4 years) and Reception (4-5 years) within a dedicated building on campus where young learners determine their own paths and are guided to develop curiosity and imagination.

Our dedicated Foundation Stage School follows the England and Wales Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework, focusing on seven areas of development. These include Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social, and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, and Expressive Arts and Design. The interconnected nature of the programme ensures that students perceive the links between their learning, build a strong foundation and foster curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. 


As our young learners begin to read and write, teachers follow the synthetic phonics programme, Read Write Inc, which starts in Nursery and continues until the end of Reception.

Our White Rose Maths curriculum allows for children to engage with real-world maths while practising their fluency.
Arabic and Islamic Studies
Children in Foundation Stage will have access to specialist teachers for Arabic and Islamic Studies.

During PE lessons, Foundation Stage students are provided with opportunities for play both indoors and outdoors. Specialist teachers support them in building core strength, stability, balance, spatial awareness and agility.

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 College. Students learn how to use technology effectively and securely within the digital age. The programme encompasses computer skills, coding and digital safety.

The College’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.
