Andrea Smith

Vice Principal - Primary

I have been in education for over 25 years and a Headteacher for 17 of those. Having graduated from Exeter University with a Degree in History & Geography, I undertook a Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education. I gained my National Professional Qualification for Headship through the National College for School Leadership.

I have worked in different schools across the years and have been the Headteacher of three very different primary schools. So far, all of my teaching and leadership career has been in Plymouth, a beautiful coastal city in South-West England.

My sons are students at Oryx, we enjoy spending family time together, as well as making the most of all the opportunities that come with living in Doha and being part of an international school. The family, along with our two black labradors also enjoy walking on the beach on the weekends.

It is my continued aim to support and develop the whole staff team, pupils and community at Oryx.
