Why Homeschool in Qatar with Sophia High School?

Outstanding British Independent School Experience

Sophia High School’s online provision provides considerable advantages over more traditional British Schools in Qatar and stands apart from our online school competitors. As passionate educators with over 50 years of teaching and senior leadership experience in outstanding British schools around the world, our core driver is to ensure that every student is provided with a high quality learning experience and achieves their full potential.

Master British Online School Teachers

Our fully qualified, UK based teachers have been handpicked by our team from some of the best schools in the UK and have undergone rigorous safeguarding and safer recruitment checks. Our teachers deliver daily, live online lessons to our students in a maximum group size of 6 students per teaching pod for the core subjects. This ensures that every child gets the individual focus and attention they need in lessons and also avoids any behavioural issues which can arise in both traditional class settings and online school settings where there is a high teacher to student ratio.

An Exceptional British Online School Curriculum

Our Master Teachers provide daily timetabled lessons for our online school qatar students, in the core UK National Curriculum subjects including English, Maths and the International Primary Curriculum / International Middle Years Curriculum. This program is enhanced by weekly additional subject specialist lessons in Science, French, Mindfulness and PSHE. We also provide a programme of guided independent coursework linked to the live lessons which follow the UK National Curriculum objectives. Coursework, learning resources and support material is available 24/7 via our digital learning environment powered by Google Classroom.

Weekly 1-1 parent meetings & online school reports

Parents have the opportunity to meet with their child’s teacher during our weekly 1-1 meetings to discuss the learning, progress and achievement and we have a clear and transparent assessment and reporting policy so that parents fully understand their child’s learning journey at all times and we work alongside parents to provide guidance on how best to support learning at home. Our live lessons are recorded and posted weekly to enable students to return to the learning at any time as an additional learning resource tool. We offer termly school reports and transfer certificates for our homeschool Qatar families and provide support when transitioning to new schools.

We strive to create a global learning community, where students are encouraged to connect with their peers both through lesson interactions, weekly whole school celebration assemblies or in taking leadership roles in leading live lessons and sharing their passions and interests with their peers.   We also offer a wide variety of individual pursuits through our extensive extra curricular programme called SophiaX
