Dr David Postlethwaite Educator

Dr. David Postlethwaite is currently the Founding Head Teacher at Al Shomoukh International School in Muscat, Oman. The school opened its doors to students in August 2015 although Dr.Postlethwaite became involved with the project very early in its conception in 2012.


It was planned that the school would initially open with 80 students  but under the guiding hand of Dr. Postlethwaite enrolments far exceeded expectations and in day one 230 eager young minds passed through the door.

it was initially planned for the school to become an IB world school, however within weeks of opening it became apparent that the IB was not fitting with the local culture and expectations of the parents so before the end of the first term the school instead chose to follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales.
