Welcome Message - Secondary Department

Welcome to Al Maha Academy for Boys.

I am delighted to be appointed as the new Head of Secondary education at the academy at a time when our students are growing in confidence and achieving increasingly good grades. As an experienced Head Teacher from the UK, I hope to bring even greater success to the school and alongside my staff, will make every effort to support your child in achieving their full potential.

Our work will be a partnership between students, teachers and parents who must work together to support and learn from each other in preparing students to become informed and active members of their community. We will focus on a quality education that challenges and motivates students of all abilities. There will be times when your child finds lessons difficult and subjects hard to understand but this is all part of life’s learning journey. They must try their best at all times and when in doubt, must ask for help. Should problems arise, please make contact with members of staff – we are here to support you and your child.

Our role as teachers and parents is to guide our children through life’s challenges and support then in making the right choices. Success without integrity means little and we will expect our students to be confident and ambitious but also humble and respectful. The academy expects a great deal from its staff and students and is always mindful of the importance of the Islamic faith and Qatari identity placing this at the heart of what we do.

To succeed, we will all need to work together and grow to understand each other. If we can achieve this, our students will enter a rapidly changing world with confidence and strength of character that will allow them to achieve their dreams and ambitions.

I look forward to meeting you all throughout the year and wish your children ever success in the year ahead.


Andy Hubble, B. Ed., Post Grad. Dip. Ed., NPQH

Head of Secondary




I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Al Maha Academy for Boys. Our school has been on somewhat of a unique journey over the last 12 years. Originally built on a small site housing just over 50 students we now proudly educate 1800 students of which 600 are in the secondary phase.

Teachers are often described as ‘Loco Parentis’. A responsibility no educator takes lightly. Here at Al Maha our staff have built a strong relationship with their students proving to be one of the many factors helping us achieve a 96% pass rate, amongst the best schools in Qatar.

As stated in our vision our aim is to provide an excellent internationally recognised education with Islamic identity. We teach the British curriculum along with Qatari Ministry requirement subjects such as Islamic Studies Arabic and Qatar History.

We look forward to welcoming you and your son to our academy and take honour in being able to support you in the providing them with a valuable experience.


Kind Regards,


Osman Abdullah

Deputy Head of Secondary
