DBS is a vibrant, welcoming international school providing a first class education which will enable all of our pupils to thrive in an increasingly dynamic global environment. Our core purpose is to ensure that every pupil gains as much from DBS as possible. This is based on our fundamental belief that all learners can, need and want to achieve. Our school is dedicated to improving educational attainment and the life chances of pupils regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, ability or disability. We are achieving our vision by providing an educational, recreational and social environment that supports modern teaching and learning methods. We are committed to providing an inspiring academic experience which is pupil-centred and stimulating. Our teachers are recruited for their knowledge, passion, enthusiasm and their ability to communicate with learners to ensure that every one of them is engaged, challenged, stretched and excited by the learning experience. We are committed to ensuring that all of our pupils develop into considerate, selfless and open-minded young adults; that they are inquisitive and that they learn to question, to think critically, and to work independently; that they respect the views and beliefs of others; that they are thoughtful and supportive of each other; that they are knowledgeable, reflective and prepared to take risks. These characteristics combine to produce a profile of the learner who exists in, and will emerge from, Doha British School. Our standards and expectations are high. Our teachers and support staff are excellent, our parents very supportive and our children and young adults are amazing. DBS lies at the heart of our local community and we appreciate the part we play in its integration and development. If you want to understand DBS and our unique environment, you need to experience it. Please have a good look at our website and when you get a chance, visit us to talk to our young people and meet the staff.
