Oryx International School is a unique project conceptualised by Qatar Airways and Orbital Education, creating a joint venture between a world renowned, multi-billion dollar turnover airline and a prestigious group of international schools. The objective of this £70 million project is to satisfy the demand for premium quality British style education for the children of expatriate community of Qatar Airways employees in Doha, Qatar.

The vision and mission of Oryx International School is to provide the employees of the world’s 5 star airline and their children access to a 5 star education. The school will provide state-of-the-art facilities and education technology to enrich teaching and learning experiences for the students. The school aspires to foster an ethos of global citizenship, the celebration of cultural diversity and a wide international perspective to equip their students with the building blocks to become potential leaders of the future across the world.

The extensive school facilities, especially the sport, dance and drama areas will be made available to the parent body and the Qatar Airways staff in general during evenings, weekends and holidays. This provision will be managed by the school.

Providing education in British style and tradition, based on the National Curriculum for England, whilst incorporating local culture, combined with state-of-the-art facilities will be what will make Oryx International stand out. The school will welcome students from EYFS to Year 10 during the first year, adding sixth form provision in the following years. Once completely operational, the school will cater for students aged 3 to 19 years old. 

This is a high-profile opportunity that will impact and shape international education and its delivery by leading the establishment of a new first-class school in Doha, Qatar; one that is backed by a unique joint venture between an experienced premium quality education provider and a prestigious five star airline.
