Default Relocating to Dubai

Hi everyone, really hoping you can help.

I will be relocating from the UK to Dubai from Dec.

Job is in media city, am married with 2 kids (5 yr old and a baby).

Any suggestions on:

1. British schools nearby,max 45k
2. Accomodation, 3 bed villa within 140k.

Need accomodation closer to school rather than work place, although want minimum and easy commute to work....

Love to hear from peeps who work in media city and are living in villas and send kids to british schools.

Appreciate any help you can provide!

My apartment is technically in the Marina but overlooks Media City. Not that many schools close in your price range to here (much more if you want to spent 70,000+) but seem to be more primary schools and we need a secondary school. We are looking at GEMS Metropole now which is in Motor City, new school and a good mix of international student, British curriculum, high school is 45,000 and lower grades less. This school is about 17 minutes drive from Media City and would be a longer bus ride.

I would look at the Arabian Ranches and then GEMS Metropole or Founders School for your price range. Getting kids in mid-term will limit you as well.

Just saw you wanted a 3 bedroom villa for 140k, prices are dropping so might be doable in the Ranches but also check Jumeira Village Circle.
