Muscat International School
Welcome to Muscat International School (MIS). Whether you are already a member of a school community, a prospective student or simply interested in finding out a little more about our school, I trust that you will find out what makes MIS such a special and respected school in both Muscat and Oman.
In the four years that I have been here much has been achieved and I have to thank our Chairman, Mr Said Al-Qadhi and my predecessor, Mr Brian McCormack, who have worked steadfastly and with vision to make MIS a fruitful, positive and growing establishment.
We are committed to the creative, emotional, physical and social growth of our students, as well as of course developing their intellectual and academic capabilities, to fulfil their potential. With over 55 nationalities, MIS students are respected as individuals with different histories, needs and aptitudes and, as a result, there is an ethos of plurality and community in the school.
MIS is a great place to study and work in because the students are confident, friendly and proud of their achievements and abilities. Our students are respectful, well motivated and keen to learn. We set firm boundaries which are clearly outlined and routinely enforced. The above would not be possible without a fine team of experienced and knowledgeable professionals from Kindergarten to Grade 12, who give their time and energy to make sure that the students get the best possible experience at MIS.
We have a very dedicated team of Grade Leaders in Primary and Key Stage Coordinators in Secondary who focus on pastoral issues. We also have proactive and committed classroom teachers and subject heads who together go the extra mile for their students.
As in previous years, we look forward during the year ahead to continuing our work and links with the community. Events such as Pink Day, National Day, International Day and our Charity Carnival as well as other charity and sporting events are already in the calendar and give another opportunity for our students to express themselves and to develop in different directions.
Lastly, this year’s external examination results are now published and once again many students have done themselves, their parents and MIS proud. Congratulations to these students and their teachers for their hard work and well-deserved results.
About Muscat International School
Mr Peter Hartland has been teaching for 25 years throughout the United Kingdom and more recently in Central Europe and West Africa. He has both an undergraduate degree with Qualified Teacher Status, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.
With well over 50 different Nationalities here at Muscat International School, our pupils achieve very good formal qualifications from either Cambridge or Edexcel. They also leave school with a range of important skills and qualities: they are resilient, determined, creative, flexible, able to solve complex problems, write accurately and well, present and communicate orally and with a high level of technological literacy.
Creating the conditions for success are necessary if we’re to have high expectations for our children. Creating the right conditions for those high expectations, where a love for learning can flourish is central to heart of learning here at Muscat International School. I know that children need certain character traits to excel academically.Those traits that should be embedded through a whole-school approach to helping children and young people become decent, happy, well-balanced citizens.
Mr Peter has taught GCSE and iGCSE; AS and A2 and at both undergraduate and post graduate levels respectively.
