Graduation

PYP Promotion

Moving from Grade 5 to Grade 6 is an exciting time for learners, their families and the community as a whole. Our learners grow and change significantly over the course of their journey with us. Every year we take time to come together as a community to recognize and celebrate our PYP 5 learners as they begin their transition to the MYP program.

Our annual promotion ceremony allows us to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of our learners across the PYP. It is a time for community members to share memorable moments, identify and celebrate areas of growth and achievement and formalize the transition from the PYP to the MYP. It is also an opportunity for our learners to be welcomed into the MYP formally by the MYP principal and set the stage for the next phase of their journey along the IB continuum.

Determination of which pathway is right for each student can be made on the results of the MYP programme at the conclusion of MYP-5. This depends on the academic results of the students and is based on approaches to learning, teacher recommendation, student interview, student interests, and parental input.


Students may complete the IB Diploma Programme with one of the following outcomes

  • IB Diploma 
  • IB Bilingual Diploma
  • IB Diploma Certificate (for one or more selected IB Diploma courses)
  • QA Sidra High School Diploma
  • Qatar Ministry of Education equivalency recognition


All qualification pathways provide students with the opportunity to gain a QA Sidra High School Diploma in conjunction with IB Diploma Qualifications.
