An Adventure in Education for Girls in Muscat

Downe House Muscat School, supported by the Ministry of Defence Pension Fund (MoDPF) proudly opened on Tuesday 30th August, welcoming its founding pupils for the new academic year. Downe House Muscat is the first top-ranked premium British girls’ international school to open in the Sultanate of Oman.

The school brings over a century of teaching experience to Muscat, helping to deliver a first-class education for girls aged between 9 and 18. With a strong focus on academic excellence and pupil well-being, Downe House develops pupils into confident, young ladies with the abilities to contribute successfully to society and on a global stage.

Downe House Muscat’s Principal, Michelle Scott, passionately believes that a first-class all-girls education sees young girls turn into successful, empowered, strong and courageous women of the future. The school’s ethos is to nurture girls in a warm, happy environment and respect them as individuals with wide-ranging talents and ambitions. At Downe House all girls are encouraged to become strong independent women who will drive positive change not only in Oman but across the globe.

The school offers a supportive and nurturing internship programme for motivated, ambitious, creative and inspirational Omani female graduates, across all areas of school life as well as employing a number of inspirational female Omani staff, both in the academic and administrative areas of the school. Students at Downe House Muscat are very lucky to be surrounded by strong female role-models, and graduates will join an esteemed alumni community of over 3,000 women, including members of British and international royal families and well-known figures in broadcasting, writing, the arts and business.

Be your best... be a Downe House girl
