Hi,

We are doing some research on (available) british schools in dubai as we make plans to move after the summer. this may sound ill-self-researched, but does anyone know which schools still have places for the next term (Yr 2) in september? That will surely help us narrow our focus. we are hearing that we may be too late applying.

Thanks.

Does anybody know if a child can start school while the child's residence visa is still under process?

Does any one know if any of the private schools in dubai teach french to English kids? I know this sounds a bit wonky - an english speaking kid learning french in the middle east, but here in Canada she is in the french immersion program where most of her classes are taught in french. If we only end up staying a year or two, I don't want my her to be unable to re-enter the french program when we return to Canada.

I see that there are some french private schools, but they seem to be for francophone families and I don't believe my daughter can speak french well enough to attend them.

Depending on the curriculum you select, you will find that like the rest of the modern world, children in Dubai have to learn a second language and French is often the most popular choice..... Obviously picking the UK or French schools virtually guarantee French lessons, others may not.

As an example, my school had us learn French from Year 1 to 9 and then I chose it again at GCSE level for another couple of years.

You should check out Jumeirah Baccelaureate. They have a very strong French programme.

I have heard of them. Reputation is also key when selecting schools in Dubai. Too often people are lured in to schools following 'birds of a feather' and all that.

The new KHDA ratings are a good start, but by no means a good guide either.

Pretty normal procedure. Your residence visa is like the golden ticket from Charlie and the chocolate factory!
