Default Moving to Dubai

Hi there. I’ve been given an offer to work in Dubai. I have 2 kids currently who will be going into Years 3 and 5 (British curriculum) but I’m struggling to find a school due to the long waiting lists. The other issue is that timings-wise, it’s unlikely I will be able to enrol them in September so an entry date on Oct/Nov would be required. Any suggestions as I don’t want the kids to waste a year of school?

Try a different school - plenty out there and not everywhere is full for sure.

Which schools/curriculum are you considering ?
