The Hamilton International School is Doha’s newest and most exciting premier school, situated on a magnificent campus in Mesaimeer, with world-class facilities and a bespoke international curriculum.
Hamilton is part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), a UK-owned group of more than 40 schools which includes Park House English School, one of Doha’s oldest and most respected schools. Park House has 25 years of exceptional education in Qatar and is celebrating another year of outstanding IGSCE and A-Level results. Through these local and global connections, Hamilton is at the heart of international educational best practices and a world-wide school community.
Hamilton offers diverse and relevant learning opportunities to meet its promise of fostering passion, purpose and potential in its students, igniting their curiosity, thirst for knowledge and skills to succeed wherever they go.
Hamilton’s curriculum has been carefully created to provide its children and students with the academic and personal learning they need to help them achieve these goals. The Mathematics and English curriculums use best practices and resources to make sure that all of the children and students continually develop expertise in these core subjects.
At the core of Hamilton’s bespoke curriculum are three respected curricula that work together to excite children and prepare them for later examinations. The International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), and the International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC) together provide a range of age-appropriate and exciting learning opportunities that enable children to respect and honour the local culture here in Qatar, and develop an awareness of the complexities of the wider world through the study of a wide range of subjects.
“Hamilton has adapted the IEYC, IPC and IMYC, using the very best of other curricula across the world, to provide students with a unique mix of knowledge, skills and understanding, with active learning at its heart – it makes students think for themselves. Hamilton’s carefully designed curriculum helps children not only acquire core knowledge, skills and understandings but also to become independent learners who become capable of working out their own answers to questions,” said Martin Skelton, Group Director of Learning and Education, ISP.
Hamilton’s older students in Grades 9 and 10 will be able to choose to study for the IGCSE exams or to follow the school-based curriculum, which will be accredited by NEASC. Students in Grades 11 and 12 will be prepared for entry into the best international universities. The school will offer a NEASC-accredited high school diploma, an American globally recognized standard of educational excellence, as well as the IB Diploma Program.
Terry Senior, Hamilton Principal, said: “We couldn’t be more excited to build on our world-wide network and best practices of our ISP Group. From the very start, our mission at The Hamilton International School is to ensure that the levels of learning our students reach truly amaze them and their parents, so that our students can become the best they can possibly be.”
