Learning to learn
We have been focussing a great deal of effort on our two main initiatives here at Doha British School: 'Learning to Learn' and 'Dynamic Learning'.
'Since we cannot know what knowledge will be most needed in the future,
it is senseless to try and teach it in advance. Instead we should try to
turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well
that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learnt.'
John Holt

Dynamic Learning
In our continued effort to improve, the Doha British School is always striving to be at the forefront in education.
Dynamic Learning is a modified version of the RSA Opening Minds strategy.
RSA Opening Minds is a competence based approach designed to enable
pupils not just to acquire subject knowledge, but to understand,
use and apply it within the context of their wider learning and life.

Message from the Principal

Terry McGuire - Terry McGuire

It is a great privilege to be the Principal of Doha British School. I have known this school since it was founded in 1997 and have watched it grow and develop into a 3 to 18 school (pre-school to IB Diploma) serving the needs of a diverse community. Economic growth and development in Qatar are rapid. The rate of change here reflects that of the global economy.

It is our fundamental responsibility to equip our children to thrive in a world that we can’t predict, anticipate or understand. In order to do so we will ensure that all of our children are regarded as unique, each with different abilities, strengths, attributes and characteristics.They will be challenged to achieve the very best that they possibly can.

A significant strength of this school is the exceptional relationship enjoyed between governors, management, teachers, parents and pupils.
