The Pearl Island Welcomes Prestigious International School

September 2022

United School International (USI), a new British Curriculum School on The Pearl Island in Doha, Qatar, opened its doors to students and welcomed over 500 excited children into its classrooms.

The school, which will accommodate up to 2,800 students, is an innovative joint venture between United Development Company (UDC), Qatar’s premier real estate developer and Orbital Education, a UK company providing acclaimed international education throughout the world.

Located on a 45,000 sqm plot in one of Doha’s most prestigious locations, USI boasts state-of-the-art facilities that will enrich and enhance every student’s learning and cultural experience. With high-tech science laboratories, STEAM and robotics studios and an audio-visual and recording studio alongside the outstanding sports facilities, the school is uniquely designed to encourage every child to develop a wide range of talents.

USI’s ethos rests on Orbital’s four core principles: kindness, respect, a passion for learning and the pursuit of excellence. Staffed by highly qualified and experienced British teachers, the school prides itself on the ambitious education it will deliver. Children will feel secure and confident, supported, and understood, enabling them to turn to the carefully chosen staff for guidance and encouragement.

We are pleased to witness the opening of United School International and welcome our first students. This translates the aspirations of The Pearl Island to be a fully integrated city, offering high-calibre services and amenities to our community and neighbourhood. We also trust our partners Orbital Education to provide the best international educational framework coupled with state-of-the-art facilities which will meet parents’ expectations of UDC as the developer of premium and well-rounded lifestyles.

We are proud to celebrate the opening of this prestigious school on The Pearl Island (the second landmark school we have opened in Doha) and to welcome our students, their families and our new teaching staff to the Orbital Education community. I would like to pay tribute to our colleagues at UDC for their commitment, encouragement and cooperation that has allowed us, jointly, to produce this magnificent new school.
