Downe House Muscat


Oman's first premium, British all-girls' school

Your Unique Connection to the World

“There is no limit to what girls can achieve today. A true Downe House girl leaves school empowered, believing that there is nothing that she cannot achieve.”

Michelle Scott, Founding Principal

For over 100 years, Downe House has nurtured girls from young children, through their teenage years and into adulthood. Our spectacular, new school in Muscat harnesses that heritage by offering girls a tailored education that combines the best of British with the tradition of and respect for Arabic culture.

Our all-female faculty preserves traditional values and provides a safe, nurturing environment for young girls between the ages of 9 and 18.

The Downe House DNA embraces and develops children through the core values of – Collaboration, Resilience, Creativity, Aspiration, Compassion, Communication and being Outward Looking.

We give our girls every opportunity to develop these important skills and characteristics through all aspects of life at Downe House Muscat. In the classroom, on the playing field, on stage and everywhere in between, these core values are the hope, aim and challenge for every girl. With the very best facilities of any girls’ school in Oman, our children flourish, grow in confidence and thrive in a happy, caring community.
