DESS is a dynamic learning community where the English National Curriculum provides a framework for learning. Through teamwork and cooperation between adults and children, we learn together through engagement in first hand experiences. Our children gain the knowledge, skills and understanding to continue their education internationally or to return seamlessly to the UK education system.
DESS has a Learning Support Department, consisting of three Teachers and two Teaching Assistants. They support the needs of pupils who have moderate difficulties in learning. DESS cannot cater for children with severe learning and/or behavioural difficulties. Indeed there is little provision for such children in Qatar as yet.
The Learning Support department also works with the more able in extension groups.
