Established in 1892, SEK International Schools are places where innovation and pedagogical leadership are combined with 120 years of tradition and history to offer educational programmes. The SEK Group has launched over a hundred pioneering initiatives introducing innovations such as the classrooms without walls, the SEKMUN Model United Nations and the International Baccalaureate Organisation programmes.
SEK-Qatar has a unique educational model, committed to offering quality education that promotes individualisation, places emphasis on learning rather than teaching, and fosters activity and effort, freedom, interaction and teamwork as well as transformational learning. Technology, sports, artistic and social activities also play a major role in the SEK educational model. The ultimate goal is for students to acquire skills, knowledge and understanding to become active citizens, committed and determined to build a better world.
SEK-Qatar has the infrastructure, digital devices and skilled staff to enable the delivery of online or blended learning depending on changing external scenarios, to which we are able to respond in a flexible and agile manner.
