Doha English Speaking School (DESS) is one of the oldest British schools in Doha where children aged 3-11 reach their full potential academically and beyond.
At DESS we deliver an education to our children through the British curriculum, a world renowned education system which will allow your child to continue their education internationally or into the British education system whether that be secondary education or through a seamless transition back to the UK. With virtually all of our teachers being British trained and facilities and grounds of the highest quality, we have a basis for learning which reminds our students and parents of a traditional British school, whilst still having a strong, multi cultural and international feel.
The children at DESS achieve academic results which are significantly above those demonstrated in the UK national average statistics and their sporting achievements are outstanding. Our wide range of extra curricular provision also helps our children to become well rounded individuals but most importantly our children are happy and confident individuals who are a joy to work with. Students at the end of Year 6 leave DESS well prepared for UK independent schools, grammar schools and local schools they then go on to attend.
We are very proud of our history in Qatar and many of our students keep in touch with us as Alumni which is remarkable for a primary school and a reflection of the fondness they feel for Doha English Speaking School.
If you think that your child would enjoy DESS, please arrange to visit us. It is only when you experience our school first hand that you get a flavour of what we have to offer. For parents who might be outside of the country, take a look at our welcome video "Welcome Video"
