Pre KG- 9

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Bus, walk,car.

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The classrooms are filthy. There are no resources beyond textbooks, many of which are tatty at that. There is an outdoors playground for years 5 and 6 with no water or cover, a semi covered playground for years 1-4- they all play at the same time. There are about 500 kids there at once, with two teachers on duty. The toilets are permanently dirty and often without ANY running water........

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?

Sent my child three years back. KG don't even learn to write and didn't even finish all phonics (only 12).

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

No.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

Don't.The head of KG is functioning using her sister in law's credentials. The Head of primary was fired from the English playgroup and the Head of Secondary was reprimanded for two years by the General Teaching Council of the UK for lying on CV.
