One of the leading premium international schools in Thailand, emphasising all-round education and preparing students for world-class universities
Outstanding and different with The Unique DBS Vision.
Mr Mark McVeigh,Principal of Denla British School, who is an expert in education and has all-round experience from leading schools in England and South East Asia, comments that DBS has been created from a vision “Nurturing Global Leaders” that aims to promote educational excellence and leadership in a happy and enthusiastic environment. To build and support students’ successes, DBS operates with the 4 pillars of The Unique DBS Vision, which are An Enhanced British Curriculum, Academic Excellence for All, Entrepreneurship and Creative Thinking, and Community and Global Perspectives.
The curriculum from British independent schools is considered the best UK curriculum.
UK. All teachers are native English-speakers (apart from Thai and Mandarin teachers) and they are very experienced. The uniqueness of DBS’s enhanced UK curriculum includes its approach to Personalised Learning. Personalised Learning is about focusing on each student according to their skills and preferences. It can range from individual to small group teaching under the supervision of teachers and learning assistants. Students in Year 13 - 18 years old are nearing their graduation from Senior School, and are approaching a very important period of preparation for the IGCSE and A Level examinations. Eligibility for world-renowned universities, either in the UK, US, or anywhere else in the world, requires good academic qualifications and life skills, such as leadership, social interaction, and passion. These special talents can’t be cultivated overnight, but have to be developed from childhood.
With the outstanding feature of an independent UK school curriculum, including an additional 1.5 hours of learning and teaching (also known as the Extended Day system), students at DBS study 8 hours per week more than other international schools at no additional cost for the parents. Students’ time is filled with more than 40 subjects to choose from, which includes academics, robotics, music, sport, dance, cooking, and leadership courses. In this way, students can focus on their preferences and try new things, under the close supervision of more than 60 expert teachers and 40 assistants. This constitutes an important foundation to develop students to advance to world-class universities. “We are proud to have exceeded the standards for membership to the International School Association of Thailand (ISAT) and Council of International School (CIS), both of which are leading organisations that assess the quality of educational standards of international schools. DBS is also included in the “THE BEST INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS IN BANGKOK AND THAILAND 2019”, from the school website ranking: www.world-schools.com (https://world-schools.com/the-best-international-schools-in-bangkok/, https://worldschools.com/best-international-schools-in-thailand/), which compiles and ranks international schools from over 100 countries worldwide. DBS students have improved significantly in all areas. They have won various academic awards, as well as prizes from other activities and sports. These all ensure DBS’s reputation as a leading international school that encourages future leaders and entrepreneurs. It is also clear that evaluations from prestigious international school organisations show that DBS is well placed to nurture its young leaders who will compete on the world stage, fully committed to the school’s motto; “Always to Greater Things”, Mr McVeigh concludes.
