The school campus consists of a purpose-built, air-conditioned building with large classrooms, a library, two IT suites, three science laboratories, two art rooms, a food technology room, auditorium, assembly hall and gymnasium.

“ISL Qatar was one of the first schools to open as part of the Supreme Education Council's Outstanding Schools initiative and is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, authorised to offer the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP) and Diploma Programme. The school provides a rigorous inquiry-based and integrated curriculum, which promotes the values of international mindedness and multicultural understanding.”

From the managing director

“Most of our students born after 2000 may well live to be over 100 years of age. They face a future of employment, activity and lifestyle hitherto unknown. Knowledge and its applications are being superseded exponentially. We educate our students in the way of learning to learn, so that learning becomes a lifelong process – a habit – that we can adapt as the future unfolds. The content and delivery of our curriculum is holistic, visionary and challenging. This is what we can offer our students and staff in a safe, secure and loving environment where learning to learn should be a joy. Please come and visit us to experience for yourself what the International School of London in Qatar has to offer for you.”

– Amin Makarem, Managing Director
