Principal’s Welcome

Denla British School aims to nurture global leaders. It is an exciting fusion of the best of British and Thai values. My wife, Lisa, and I are repeatedly impressed by the immensely positive and compassionate community at DBS, and the strong ethos of academic rigour, child-centred pastoral care and co-curricular diversity.

The DBS vision is to be a leading provider of exceptional all-round education, structured on the four key DBS principles: An Enhanced British Curriculum, to deliver properly holistic education; Academic Excellence for All, to challenge all students; Entrepreneurship and Creative Thinking, to develop resourceful and resilient young people; and Community and Global Perspectives to preserve ‘Thainess’, to encourage global citizenship and to promote well-being.

The inspirational teaching body is the driving force for implementing this distinctive vision for DBS, and they are supported by exceptional student commitment and parental engagement. The campus is one of the largest in Bangkok, and the facilities provide a most stimulating teaching and learning environment.

It is a privilege to be able to work alongside immensely positive students, parents, colleagues and the Board, to implement the ambitious, and unique, DBS vision. I hope that you will consider joining our exceptional community.

Best regards,


Mark McVeigh
Principal
