Secondary School is the stage which provides education between the Primary and Senior section of the School. The students of the Secondary School are aged between 9 and 16.
Learning about the world we live in is taught by means of the dynamic Cambridge based curriculum, teaching students to be socially responsible, underpinned by an understanding of the diversity of Qatar and our place in the world. We believe in the holistic development of students and so not only do we pay attention to the academic curriculum we also have a comprehensive co-curricular and character development programmes aimed at developing knowledge, skill, capabilities and the attitude of our students.
The secondary section at Noor Al Khaleej is centered on the intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of students. The students in the Secondary school are encouraged to be themselves, showing tolerance and respect for the rights of others and appreciate the differences. Students grow in self-respect, taking responsibility for their own actions and conduct, they develop into leaders who are experienced in decision-making. Lessons are developed to maximize teaching and learning with an emphasis on cooperative learning. Educational Technology like using Microsoft 365 for Education, is integrated into lessons with the emphasis on computer literacy skills, content creation, collaboration and digital citizenship.
The student/teacher relationship is a cornerstone in the Secondary phase student’s social maturation allowing students to define themselves, adapt to their environment and grow their emotional and social intelligence. It is an exciting learning environment, alive with opportunities made possible by our team of dedicated and passionate teachers who are committed to implementing our learning program in a creative, inspiring and relevant manner ensuring that our students experience confidence, success, and support.
NAKIS is a place where our student’s ideas are heard and encouraged, creative and cultural talents especially relevant to Qatar, are discovered and nurtured, academic skills and knowledge are integrated and implemented, individual strengths and passions are celebrated, confidence is gently developed and each student is highly valued. When the students reach Year 9, they change uniform to more formal uniform that is more corporate looking and they stand out as leaders on the campus.
