Used to be very good - but now that school has been taken over by GEMS, parents kept back
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
This used to be a lovely school, but since the takeover there is clearly a different atmosphere - some staff have been treated badly, and we feel the school is not the same. it really has gone corporate, and lots of broken promises. previous entries here were when the school was truly independent. No longer the case. very sad
