Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Doha British School Al Wakra works in close partnership with Doha British School main campus delivering the National Curriculum of England and provides an excellent education for all of pupils.
Doha British School Wakra believes that children should enjoy school and understand the world around them. The core purpose of the school is that every pupil gets as much from DBS as possible. This is based on the school's fundamental belief that all pupils can, need and want to learn. DBS ensures that teaching and learning has a dynamic balance of fun, play, academic rigor and discipline.

Teaching approach of the school

Doha British School Wakra follows a modified version of the National Curriculum of England 2014.
Core subjects, English and Mathematics, are followed as directed by the National Curriculum and are taught on a daily basis as separate subjects. Science, another core subject, is taught as both a discrete subject and as part of the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum includes the teaching of all other subjects, as outlined in the National Curriculum, through a topic based curriculum that enables our children to link subjects and ideas together to make sense of their learning and the world around them.

As an International school DBS is very proud of its host country, its values and history. DBS adapts the school's history teaching to include Qatar History from Year 1 to 6 and this provides us with many opportunities for wonderful local history studies. Qatar history is taught alongside history topics taken from the National Curriculum.

In addition to the National Curriculum 2014 DBS also includes aspects of personal and emotional learning, the content of which includes the teaching of a range of values and skills that help to create a culture of success and harmony by teaching sensitivity to the needs of others alongside self-awareness and self-confidence, children learn how to behave as members of a purposeful community. These skills and attributes are delivered through weekly assemblies, class time and circle time.
