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

Sporting facilities are poor, music and drama taeching is good but facilities (stage, lighting, drana hall) are all very poor and in need of upgrading.

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?

School follows the UK system so for other nationalities there is no trnasition procedures in place. Repatriation is not covered.

Zero, there is no PTA (although it has existed in the past)and although a PTA is required by the schools charter.

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

Consider alternative schools as fortunately the monopoly this school has enjoyed for many years is finally being eroded. If you visit the Headmaster ask to see the sports fields, ask him about the schools bullying policy and request a copy of the schools rules.
