Programmes Offered

Denla British School is a world class education for future leaders of the world. It is located on Ratchaphruek Road northwest of Bangkok and offers a curriculum grounded in the National Curriculum for England, and enhanced by an all encompassing school day with a vision for holistic learning. DBS will initially enroll students aged 3-11 (EY1 to Year 6) in May 2017; we will then extend enroll into a complete through-school for students up to 18 years of age (Year 13).

Admission Procedure & Criteria

Students applying for places from Years 1 to 13 are invited to undertake an entrance assessment at a non-refundable application fee THB5,000 per applicant. The assessment tests are designed primarily to ensure that the teaching and curriculum offered match the student’s needs and are of great help internally at Denla British School. Entry to DBS is based on availability in the Year group required, results of the entrance assessment and previous school reports.

Admission to Year 12 is subject to meeting our minimum entry requirements: four B grades and two C grades at GCSE, two of which must be English Language and Mathematics.

Please contact the Admissions Team if you are applying from overseas.

Note: Admission to Year 11 and Year 13 will be in very exceptional circumstances only and only when the student can demonstrate the ability to pass GCSE and/or A levels with excellent grades.
