    The ‘East Sussex’ is BCAD.
    Mr Frosty is spot on with most things, as normal.
    Personally, the Derbyshire school on Reem still has a lot to prove though.
    Smarty building schools... yuck!
    The best schools are the best for a reason - high expectations, but just rewards. Amazing places to work.

    I have to admit I don't know anyone who works at the Reem school, but one of my non-reacting friends was telling me they met someone that did and they said only good things. But then again, I suspect things would have to be pretty bad before they admitted it publicly - people would be quick to assume you're the problem rather than the school I imagine.

    As far as I know the company which owns the school on Reem is not that great, and their Dubai schools are not what they used to be. Not in the same league as the 3 mentioned schools, the academies and BISAD are also better in my opinion. Other people might disagree of course...

    A friend of mine works for a great expanding school in Dubai so if anyone is looking for a future position please let me know.

    My wife and I are planning on moving out to the ME with our little one- in particular Qatar or AD. We both teach core subjects in the UK and would love the chance to move back out after doing a few years in the ME earlier in our teaching career.

    After reading through similar threads, it is quite clear as to which schools to stay well clear of- esp in Qatar! However, there are quite a few jobs out at the moment at a certain Academy franchise with, I believe, seven schools in AD which we are thinking of applying to.

    Any information on these schools would be very much appreciated.

    Hi, I'm currently in the process of job hunting for Primary School Teacher positions in Abu Dhabi, would be interested to learn your views on the top 3 schools. Oh, and just to say that I've enjoyed reading your views on life in the UAE.
