Director's message


Welcome to Al Sahwa Schools.


At this time of profound change for Oman, schools like Al Sahwa have a pivotal role to play in preparing the next generation of leaders in Oman to continue the founding vision of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, in particular with helping to realise the ambitious vision for Oman 2040. 


Our Sultan, His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tariq Al Said, said in his first speech.


“No words can describe a great leader like Sultan Qaboos Bin Said. The best way to pay tribute to His Majesty Sultan Qaboos is by following his righteous path”.


For our students to be the future leaders of Oman, the most powerful respect that they can show to Sultan Qaboos is to continue his work in building his beloved Oman into an even greater nation, secure in its values and identity. Each member of our learning community should vow to make a positive difference and to be a force for peace and righteousness for the rest of your lives.


We are proud of our school and we value every member, recognising the fundamental distinction between being merely “qualified” and being properly “educated” with all the depth of meaning this implies. We are all lifelong learners.


In the Oman Vision 2040, it is stated that “We should spare no effort to build for our future generations and reinforce the bright and unique march towards the future. We move forward with confidence.” This ambitious vision places a major duty upon schools to rise to the challenges of an exciting future for Oman. At Al Sahwa Schools, we will meet these challenges.


As Director, I share the collective pride we have in our learning community. In the Oman Vision 2040, the principles and objectives of a modern education system are identified and all these components are embraced by Al Sahwa Schools.  This future vision is laying down the foundation for an empowered knowledge-based society whose members are innovative, entrepreneurial, proud of their identity and culture, committed to their civic duties and values, who enjoy a life of dignity and sustainable wellbeing and universal education that guarantees lifelong learning.


An education of the highest quality is the greatest gift that parents can give to their children. The next global generation will need exceptional academic and intellectual creativity to take on positions of leadership and address the many challenges that face our world. Given this, it is vitally important that the leading schools in the 21st Century provide a genuinely holistic international education to prepare learners for the responsibilities they will face in their lives. 


Al Sahwa Schools have a proud legacy of over 28 years and we will not shirk from the challenges that lie ahead in our ongoing commitment to excellence. We are passionate about providing an outstanding learning experience, being determined to give our students every opportunity to succeed through a combination of excellent teaching, sensitive mentorship, an exceptional learning environment and by taking significant responsibility. 


Any successful education is always based upon listening partnerships of mutual respect and humility between students, parents and teachers. At Al Sahwa Schools we are committed to the development of these nurturing partnerships so that every learner, regardless of abilities or aptitudes, can reach their fullest potential and thereafter make their positive mark on the world. 


We look forward to welcoming you to our exceptional schools.
