School Introduction

One of two major international schools on Lantau, DBIS offers a British style education for children aged 3-18.

Founded in 1983, just after the first residents moved into Discovery Bay, it now has almost 1,500 students mostly living in the area.

A significant move for the school means that, from 2017/18, existing DBIS students will now be able to complete their education whilst the school will welcome students into Year 12.

Students in the Senior School will pursue AS/A Levels qualifications, typically choosing four subjects to study in Year 12 and narrowing this to three subjects as they enter Year 13. They will also be encouraged to complete the Extended Project Qualification, giving them the chance to explore an area of personal interest in further depth.
