In a short span of time Iqra English School has made a mark in the Education sector here in the country. Just like Qatar, Iqra English School has been going through rapid growth. We started in January 2007 with only eight students and a number of educators, but, we now cater to more than 500 students. The school has been continuously expanding with the addition of new facilities to meet the demands of its growing student population. We have in our team highly qualified educators to teach and guide your children to be the best that they can be. To achieve our Vision and Mission our educators continuously assess the school's curriculum and programs to assure that it meets international standards. We teach the curriculum of England and Wales ( the "British" Curriculum ) with some modifications to make it more relevant and appropriate for our mainly Muslim children, the majority of whom speak English as a second language. We are also proud of our emphasis on the teaching of Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Quran memorization. Teaching techniques are consistently examined and improved to make sure that each child's progress is enhanced. These are just some of the efforts that our school has been implementing to assure you that your children reach their fullest potential. This website is our way of reaching out to you and providing you with timely information that you may need in choosing the right school for your child. We encourage you to visit our school to ask questions and give suggestions so we may work together to find means of providing the best education possible for your children.

MESSAGE FROM CEO
December 2016 marked the 10 year Anniversary of the opening of Iqra Schools in Qatar. During that time it has been my honour and privilege to work with some wonderful people on Iqra’s journey of growth and expansion. Today Iqra schools enjoy a reputation for good, solid educational standards, well-behaved and hardworking students, committed and dedicated teachers and staff and a forward- looking and progressive leadership. We are proud that our Boys school and our Girls school are two of only twenty five schools in Qatar in 2017 that were successfully awarded full accreditation from the Qatar National Standards Agency (QNSA). Successfully passing all the exacting standards and criteria for QNSA Accreditation in the areas of Educational Leadership, Development and Care for Learners, Educational Performance and Learning Environment, Resource Management and Parental and Community Partnership means that you can have confidence that we are a school fully committed to striving to make your child’s time with us at Iqra a positive and beneficial experience. As our journey continues and, God-willing, with current projects to open an all Girls school K-12 Academy in 2018-2019 and plans to open a Boys Secondary school in 2019-2020 we welcome you to visit us and see for yourself our wonderful schools.
