I should say straight away that I don't have kids but if I did the one thing that would concern me about education in Dubai is the extremely high turn over in teaching staff.
It only takes a few minutes to look at the site and see how many threads there are about teachers coming and what sort of pay scale they are on.
The low pay appears to just attract younger low experience teachers who only stay a couple of years.
Herriot what is a British Brand for sure but that's like saying McDonald's is an American restaurant.

When i went to University, i could spell 'academic' and the name of the University i went to. (Heriot Watt), but i went to a Scottish University in Scotland.....

just saying...!

A lot of friends went to HW in Scotland and had a good time. No idea about their Dubai campus, though.

i'd expect someone pedalling education services to have better control of punctuation, capitalisation and self-checking, to be honest, but each to his own!
