Welcome letter from the Head of Secondary

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to all new and returning students and parents/guardians to the 2018-2019 academic year at The Sultan’s School.  I would like to start by congratulating our class of 2018 who graduated with an IB Diploma pass rate of 96% and a high score of 43. We also saw a pleasing improvement with our IGCSE results, with several students achieving A*s and As.

Joining our secondary school this year is Danny Anterkyi and Simon Dixon who will be teaching Mathematics; Duduzile ‘Joyce’ Mtsweni who is teaching Science and Physics; Kate Miller and Lauren Wafer-Kiddle who are teaching English; Adam Knapper who is teaching Geography and Business; Robert Small who is our Head of Individuals and Society and Adam Smith who is teaching PE.  Please join us in welcoming them to The Sultan’s School and Oman.

The Sultan’s School Secondary Team look forward to the continued support from parents and guardians as we all work together to encourage and support our students in their pursuit of excellence.  We strive for success in Academics, the Arts, Sports and as good citizens of their own community and the larger global community.

Please note that we have updated our Code of Conduct, this is available on the app and website.  We ask that you read through this with your son and daughter and to ensure the contents are fully understood.

Parents/Guardians and students are also reminded to keep up to date through our many forms of electronic communication. Please ensure that you have our app loaded on your phone and that we have an up-to-date email address and phone number. As a Green Flag school concerned about the environment, electronic format will be the main method of communication.
