An adventure in education for girls in Muscat

“There is no limit to what girls can achieve today. A true Downe House girl leaves school empowered, believing that there is nothing that she cannot achieve.”

It is a very special moment in the 112-year history of Downe House to be opening a school in the wonderful city of Muscat, in the beautiful country of Oman, and to be sharing our outstanding style of education here. I am truly excited to be the founding head of this exceptional new school for girls.

We are offering a uniquely British education for girls between the ages of 9 and 18 (Grades 5 – 12). Our education offer reflects excellence in all that we do and provides the girls with a vibrant range of opportunities in and outside the classroom to develop them into  successful women of the future.

At Downe House Muscat, the staff and I focus on each girl as an individual through a comprehensive pastoral system, individualised tutoring, and with a personal spotlight on getting to know the girls from the very first day they begin their educational journey with us.

Excellence in teaching and learning is at the foundation of all that we do, complemented by a fulfilling extra-curricular programme. Our education is specifically tailored to the way we know that girls learn best. The girls at Downe House Muscat feel that they are on a bespoke educational journey – a journey that challenges them and inspires them at every stage.

A Downe House girl is someone who truly wants to be the best version of themselves. It is my responsibility and my pleasure to support them and champion them on that journey.

I look forward to welcoming you to the School and to sharing with you what a very special place Downe House Muscat will be for your daughter.
