Thank you for your interest in Dubai British School (DBS), a Taaleem School. Founded in 2005, DBS has established itself as one of the leading British schools in the region, offering a broad and balanced education to children from all around the world. We are a unique school that places the wellbeing of our students and the interests of our community at the heart of everything we do. It is our goal that every DBS student is given the tools to make a positive difference during their time with us – to their own life and to other’s lives. Our mission of “Enjoy, Aspire, Achieve” perfectly captures the ethos of this great school, where students thrive in a nurturing yet challenging environment – able to achieve the best possible educational outcomes and to flourish as individuals during the experience. We celebrate this individuality in all that we do, praising a musical solo as warmly as we do an A* grade and promoting a wonderful piece of artwork or sporting brilliance as much as we do an entrance into Cambridge university. It is this warmth of spirit that sets DBS apart, where every student, every member of staff and every parent is able to find their place in the sun. Schools are often talked about as being ‘happy places’, but DBS is made up of happy people – happy to be respected, valued, and appreciated, given every opportunity to succeed in a way that is meaningful to them. I do hope that you are able to visit the school, to see and feel this for yourselves, and to hopefully join the DBS community as a student, parent or member of staff.
