Artemis Education is the new education vehicle led by the Brennan Family, the family behind Park House English School, who have operated at the fore-front of international education in Qatar for over thirty years.

Niall Brennan, CEO and son of Mrs Heather Brennan said: ‘I am delighted to be continuing my family’s work in Qatar with this fantastic new school. Not only will the educational experience be incredible, but we will be delivering it at a price that is accessible to more families.’

Al Alfia for Education, a wholly owned subsidiary of Al Alfia Holding is the partner in this school project and Artemis Education. Group COO, Johnny de Gouveia said: “At Al Alfia we are investing in the future of the State of Qatar, a country where so many people call home. We are delighted to be partnering with Artemis Education and continuing the long legacy of incredible education in Qatar.”

Dougie Smith, Chief Education Officer said: “The partnership of Artemis Education and Al Alfia will create a powerhouse in the education sphere allowing us to deliver incredible education at an accessible and competitive price, in a beautiful boutique school. “

Sheldon Smith, Principal of Northview International said, “I am delighted to be the Founding Principal of this new and exciting school. I am looking forward to meeting parents, as well as our first pupils, who will help shape Northview International to be the first choice for families in Qatar”.

At Northview International, pupils, parents, and staff will thrive in a happy, supportive and inclusive ecosystem where the school is not only a community within itself but also a hub reaching out and investing in the local area. Staffed by fully-qualified native-speaking educational professionals drawn from across the globe and guided by the overarching tenets of all Artemis schools, Northview International will not only develop the academic potential of each pupil but also support their social, emotional and physical wellbeing.

The school will seamlessly integrate ‘The Three Subjects’ of Arabic language, Qatar History and Islamic Studies as directed by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.

Set to deliver a carbon neutral building by 2030, Northview International has taken responsibility towards sustainability, evident in the construction of the school that eliminates environmental impact where possible. School operations will also have a target of achieving a carbon-zero rating in the future.

As part of its opening in 2021, the school will be open for classes of Pre-KG (3 years old) to Grade 2 (7 years old). As the school grows year-on-year, so will the pupil intake. Future classes will be up to Grade 5 (Elementary School), Grades 6 – 8 (Middle School) and Grades 9 – 12 (High School).
