Mrs. Emma-Louise Cathrae

Primary Head Teacher

I take great pride in welcoming you to the Durham Family. I am incredibly honoured to be leading the Primary school as its Primary Head Teacher through Durham School for Girls’ opening year and beyond.

At Durham School for Girls Doha we have a dedicated team of teachers, support staff and governors who believe that every girl has unique talents and the ability to succeed in whatever she puts her mind to. My team are excited and ready to welcome you to our family and inspire your daughter. Our aspiration is that the experiences of girls at the school ensure that they achieve the highest possible academic and personal outcomes.

We will create a culture whereby our young females are respected and admired because they live out the values of M.A.R.K. My aspiration for each girl will be to use knowledge wisely, be creative and independent, caring and well-mannered and, due to this, they will be able to rise successfully to their life and learning challenges.

We want each girl excited about coming to school, engaged purposefully in their learning and able to articulate their views in polite, respectful and positive ways. I expect learning opportunities to be irresistible and will work to develop what we do and how we do it for the future of each girl under my care.

In leading the Primary Section of Durham School for Girls, I have the following aims:

  • To ensure that our students enjoy their learning.
  • To create opportunities for students to develop the key values of M.A.R.K
    • Moral Integrity
    • Ambition
    • Responsibility
    • Kindness
  • To keep students safe and happy at school so that they can learn effectively.
  • To be ambitious for academic success for our girls
  • To ensure all my fantastic staff are wonderful role models, empowering our females to become the best version of themselves.

I look forward to meeting you personally and welcoming you to our fantastic school.
