Why choose Downe House Muscat?

In a country where girls-only education is highly valued, Downe House Muscat provides a world class curriculum without compromise in a traditional yet innovative setting.

First Authentic All-Girls, British Partnered School in the World

Downe House Muscat is the first girls-only school in the world to be partnered with an authentic girls-only private school from the UK. Downe House UK brings 112 years of experience to Oman, helping to deliver a first-class education.

The value of girls-only education

Downe House Muscat provides girls with a great start to their educational journey. Our ethos is to nurture girls in a warm, happy environment and respect them as individuals with wide-ranging talents and ambitions. Our Downe House DNA informs and influences everything we do at the school and develops girls into confident, young women with abilities to contribute successfully in society and on a global stage.

According to the World Bank, the number of women attending universities and colleges in Oman has increased more than tenfold since 1972 and is at least equivalent to men. Our broad, all-inclusive curriculum has a proven track-record of ensuring that girls graduate to the world’s top universities.

Secure all-girls, state-of-the-art campus

Downe House Muscat operates in an all-female environment where your daughter’s safety is a priority.

The School is designed by award-winning architects, where state of the art buildings and facilities have been purpose built to deliver outstanding education. The facilities are the best of any girls’ school in Oman and the wider region – they include a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) centre, a 450 seat theatre and a sports academy.

Outstanding education delivered through an extended day

Whilst many schools in Oman finish at 1:30pm, Downe House Muscat has an extended school day. This longer day ensures that every girl has the opportunity to discover interests and talents beyond the classroom, helping them to build character, team-working skills and self-confidence.

There is no such thing as a ‘typical Downe House girl’

When a girl joins Downe House Muscat, we provide an environment that both supports her development and celebrates her individuality – there is no such thing as a ‘typical Downe House girl’.

What is typical, however, is that all girls are challenged to fulfil their potential through a strong academic focus and a broad but balanced curriculum underpinned by our Downe House DNA. We provide almost limitless opportunities for them to become accomplished academics, musicians, actors, athletes, artists or wherever their talents and ambitions take them.
