School advice needed!

We are moving to Singapore in August, with a 10 year old girl and a 12 year old boy (from the UK).

Ideally, we would like to send them to Tanglin in order to stick with the UK curriculum and make our move homein 2 years time as easy as possible - but our son is mildly dyslexic and they are being sticky about accepting him - it may or may not work out.

So we need to consider alternatives.

It seems our options are:

- OFS (have been put off by reviews about size of school, state of facilities etc) but they have offered us a place.....

- St Josephs (how academic are the entrance exams? Should I be concerned about them and whether our son will get in? Also seems very biased towards native Sinaporeans - this could well be a very good thing, but would welcome comments)

- EMAAR (ditto comments above)

- Chatsworth (was put off by lack of facilities and very small campus)

- Dover Court for our daughter

Does anyone have any advice or experience about putting a mildly dyslexic child into any of these schools? Any stories or help HUGELY appreciated - this is putting me into a total flat spin....

We're headed to Singapore from the US in May. We really liked the Australian International School and the Stamford American International School. Not sure those will work for you because you want to stay with a UK curriculum though. Have you considered homeschooling? I can help you out there if you need info. Best of luck to you and maybe we'll meet up in Singapore :-)
