The Hamilton International School is Doha’s newest and most exciting premier school, situated on a magnificent campus in Mesaimeer, with world-class facilities. This new school aims to foster passion, purpose and potential in its students. Their bespoke international curriculum and diverse learning opportunities will ignite children’s curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

Hamilton is part of the International Schools Partnership (ISP), a UK-owned group of 42 schools, which includes Park House English School, one of Doha’s oldest and most respected schools. Park House has 25 years of exceptional education in Qatar, and through this reciprocal connection, Hamilton will collaborate and share educational best practices as well nurture an extended school community.

An extensive music, arts and performing arts program, underpinned by Qatar’s biggest school-based theatre

Hamilton is very proud to announce that their brand-new campus includes a state-of-the art theatre, the biggest school-based theatre in Qatar, with an auditorium and balcony to seat over 850 guests, an orchestra pit, a large stage, and a fully equipped production room, enabling the school to nurture a fully-fledged performing arts program, as well as host music and arts performances.

On Friday August 23, to inaugurate the ‘Hamilton Theatre’, the school will host Gotta Sing, a musical theatre experience group from the UK which helps people develop skills through singing and performing.

The team comprises of Greg Arrowsmith, a conductor, composer and pianist with over 10 years’ experience working on both the concert circuit and in musical theatre in London’s West End, and Joanne Corrigan, an ex-BBC live program editor and producer with over 20 years’ experience. The duo was invited by Hamilton to teach founding children and families how to sing and will work with them to produce their own musical theatre cabaret performance.

Hamilton will continue to work with both local and international organizations to bring the very best arts experiences to the school.

We look forward to welcoming families on Friday and remember this FREE activity is for all to enjoy!
