How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Most seem to arrive by bus or car.
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The school is housed in an old building that has had a lot of money spent on it to bring it up to date. My son loves the covered basketball court in which he alas plays football.
What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home
country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?
The school has a normal English style of education with compulsory (unwanted ) Arabic and Islamic studies thanks to the Kuwait Ministry of Education. The science teaching is first class.
I feel that when my family returns to Manchester a re-intergration programme will not be required.

We have been to a few meetings. But in truth we are not that keen on PTSs and avoid that kind of social activity.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Go and have a look at the school. You will be pleasantly surprised.
