Required: August 2019
Closing date: 26 November 2018
Co-educational • 3 – 18 years • 1300 pupils.
Dukhan English School (DES) is one of the oldest international schools in Qatar. It also benefits from being the only international school serving Dukhan. Its students are accommodated across two schools, the families of whom are all Qatar Petroleum (QP) employees. As such, the Principal plays a prominent part in the town as a whole; the sense of community is a key factor in the success of the school.
DES was established in the early 1950s by British Petroleum, the operators of the Dukhan Field at the time. As oil operations have grown, the school has expanded and Dukhan is now a multi-national town with residents of almost 50 different nationalities. This is an exciting time for DES: a new, purpose-built primary school opened in August 2018 for pupils aged 3-11 and a new secondary school is planned. The Principal of DES will have a unique opportunity to play a crucial role in shaping the next phase of its development.
In addition to the Principal, the Senior Leadership Team comprises the Head of Secondary, Head of Primary, Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Leader and four Assistant Heads.
Salary: highly competitive remuneration and an extensive benefits package that is supportive of the needs of families
