How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Good. All classrooms look well equipped much like any british classroom. They have an arabic room, an art room and computer room and they have resource rooms with teaching equipment and PE equipment. They have a library with general reading books and Oxford Reading Tree books for all levels. My child is given a Oxford Reading Tree book every day to bring home and a library book once a week.
After school they can do Karate, football, gymnastics and ballet this term.
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?
I understand the teacher has read the report from their old school and assessed my child on their ability. When we go back home they said they will give a full report on my child's ability and provide a level based on the British assessment criteria.
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
There is a PTA who recently did a bake sale after the end of term production. They also had a PTA meeting recently at a coffee shop on the beach where lots of people went along.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
To me it seems like a very nice school and children are very happy there. It is a small school and they have small classes so children can get individual attention and I have seen lots of progress in my children. I would recommend the school.
