Doha British School is a co-educational International school in the Ain Khaled area of Doha, in the State of Qatar. It was established in September 1997 and offers education to students from pre-school to Year 13.[1]

The school was originally known as Doha Montessori and British School (DMBS) before it was re-branded to Doha British School (DBS) in Spring 2011, during the 2010-11 academic year. The school delivers the National Curriculum for England throughout primary and secondary school, giving students the opportunity to complete International General Certificate of Secondary Education (International GCSE) qualifications during years 10 and 11.

Doha British School offers both the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and national AS Level to its sixth form students in Years 12 and 13. The institution became an IB World School in March 2010 and has since been delivering the Diploma Programme with a wide range of subjects from different disciplines for its students as an excellent school-leaving qualification option, opening doors for many post-secondary education paths including further tertiary education. In September 2015, the AS Level award was introduced as another option for students to provide students with choice.

There is a second recently-founded Doha British School campus situated in the area of Al Wakra, which offers education for children from the levels of pre-school to Year 7, as of the 2017-18 academic year.
