Founded in 2005 and located in the thriving Emirates Hills area of Dubai, DBS is a purpose built British international school, offering England's National Curriculum, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC), GCSE and A Level.

The school achieved CIS accreditation in 2009 - 2010 and is part of a family of schools, offering a variety of international curricula run by the Taaleem management group. Although the majority of its student population are British, DBS caters for over 63 different nationalities and celebrates the diversity of its student body.

Staff are recruited mainly from the UK or from international schools worldwide.

The majority of the school's graduates are placed in UK universities, while others successfully apply for places in American, Australian and universities around the world.

The school offers a very wide range of activities for Primary and Secondary children and there is a thriving International Award for Young People (IAYP) programme. Students participate fully in a broad range of local and international activities, including musical theatre, Model UN and Global Challenge. There is a strong programme for competitive sports, and the school competes successfully both locally and regionally.

DBS is open to all students who are able to access a British education in the medium of English, while offering support to a limited number of children with moderate learning difficulties. The Gifted and Able programme challenges students to extend their achievement in academic, sporting and cultural spheres.
