Our Vision has been influenced by the approaches proposed by the acclaimed education expert and best-selling author, Sir Ken Robinson.

The Douay Martyrs School is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme*. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education—that we at The Douay Martyrs School believe is important for our students. * Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer the Middle Years Programme (MYP) (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org.
