Shiny boot

    Can anybody give me some more information for working at this school? As cryptic as possible without saying the name.
    It’s a shiny boot in Dubai...

    Right in the middle of the intricately wrought iron gates of the original shiny boot establishment there is a prominent cartouche enclosing the letters W.A. The second letter stands for 'Academy', which is NOT the second word of the name of the said college. Apparently the designer of the gates couldn't bear to include the real initial which might have suggested that they were the entrance to a grandiose public convenience. Truly cryptic, though admittedly not particularly helpful, as I know next to nothing about the current proliferation of shiny boot franchises.
