Welcome to The Phoenix
Private School

Meet Our Principal


Welcome from the Principal


First of all, on behalf of the staff and Governors, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all the children and parents of Phoenix Private School, especially to those who are only just beginning their educational journey with us.

I am extremely proud and privileged to be the new Principal of this wonderful, welcoming school and I am looking forward to starting my journey in developing a new, modern feel while further embedding the fundamentals of the British Curriculum, standards and expectations. We have been continuously working on delivering the very best and innovative approaches, through a structured and broad British curriculum, encouraging creativity, curiosity and a passion for life-long learning for children from foundation to year 9.


The world that our children are living in now shows a vast difference from the world we grew up in many years ago. We are being immersed in a rapid growth in science and technology and information that had never been discovered before. Therefore, it is more important now than ever that we prepare our children to be analytical thinkers, proactive discussion makers and upstanding, collaborative citizens, supporting and empowering them to thrive in their futures. I believe our children today are the leaders of tomorrow and it is our responsibility as teachers and parents alike to work together to make sure each and every child has the opportunity, support and confidence to succeed. 

Through working at Phoenix Private School, it is evident to me that learning is an exciting, continuous journey and we know that pupils progress through their journey at different paces. Therefore, we work with each child in a holistic manner, ensuring that our teachers work collaboratively across the stages to provide the very best education standards and meet each and every individual child’s needs. The teachers in our school understand that education is important, but what is equally important is the care, love and devotion we give to our children not only nourishing the mind, but also the heart. We believe that every child should be safe, happy and healthy in their educational environment as well as respected, giving responsibilities while including them in crucial decisions. Our restorative practice principles, child-centred learning and the power of pupil voice are some of the ways we reflect this.  


I know the first day of school can be a daunting experience, not only for pupils but also for their families. At Phoenix Private School we understand the emotions attached and know the importance of being greeted with a smile, making new friends and the feeling of belonging and support is crucial. Phoenix Private School is a small and friendly school in the heart of Doha. We fully believe our school is big enough to inspire yet small enough to care.

I invite you and your family to experience the joy I feel every day walking into the school by visiting our school yourself. Take time to walk around the campus to get a real sense of the excitement that resonates throughout the building, the buzz of the learning among the classrooms and the warm atmosphere that surrounds and flows through the school grounds. I believe you will recognize, just as I did, what makes Phoenix a great school for you and your child.

It is my pleasure to be here at Phoenix Private School, to be working alongside the children and with the parents, and leading the school this year and for many years to come to achieve greater successes.
