DBF is a British-style education community open students of all nationalities to whom a well-rounded education is offered. We welcome children of a wide range of abilities. Our admissions philosophy is inclusive and this is reflected in our schools’ vision statement. We aim to be inclusive at all time unless it is not possible to fully support the particular child due to constraints beyond our control e.g. facilities, resources or personnel.
