As part of Doha British Schools, we aim to develop our student’s academic and character excellence. We have an established reputation for strong academic performance as well as developing confident and well rounded individuals by making sure the curriculum is personalised to each student’s needs and is delivered by outstanding teachers.


Doha British School is one of the most established schools in Qatar. It is renowned for providing an outstanding holistic education and is among the highest achieving schools when it comes to Exam outcomes in Qatar, at both International GCSE and post sixteen including A Level. Many of DBS students go on to study at prestigious Universities across the world.


The secondary curriculum at DBS is at the cutting edge of the English National Curriculum and is reviewed and refined annually. The curriculum goes significantly beyond the minimum expectations and DBS Wakra offers a broad range of subjects and courses from Year 7 through to Year 13. Our curriculum is underpinned by the ‘DBS Ways’ and embodies our whole school approach to character education, providing a deep and rich experience for all.


At DBS, students are stretched and challenged and the school makes no apologies for expecting the highest standards in terms of behaviour, discipline and attitudes towards all members of the school community. These high standards ensure that the school offers an exhilarating and challenging learning environment where the students and staff feel safe, happy and valued.


A warm welcome to Doha British School awaits you and we are available to support any visits to the campus and experience for yourself all that this world-class school has to offer.

    The Secondary School curriculum at DBS Wakra focuses on supporting young, confident adults to reach their potential in line with our DBS Learner profile. Students should leave us prepared to face the challenges of life after school.


    We create the right kind of learning environment so that our children are fully supported as they take on the challenges of becoming young adults.


    Our focus on involvement outside the classroom alongside academic excellence aims to create the opportunity for students to become world changers in both their local and global communities.


    Our courses are designed to meet the academic, personal and cultural needs of our students and better equip them for future challenges, while at the same time creating enjoyable learning environments that inspire and motivate.
