The Sultan’s School


The Sultan’s School, Oman sits on an incredible 500,000m2 land parcel strategically located between the district of Seeb and The International Airport. The potential of the site and of the school is almost limitless. Already considered the finest bilingual school in Oman, the school has the potential to be one of the very finest bilingual schools in the world.

Whilst the Sultan’s school occupies a magnificently large site, the school are keen to embark on a programme of refurbishment and new build that maximizes the potential of the whole site, rationalizes the usage and adjacencies of buildings and functions and creates a campus that will be amongst the finest in the region and indeed the world.
