          Well at least it gives the best value for money. I’ve been to many schools which charged double the fees and weren’t half as good. I can’t imagine how good quality learning could happen with such a severe number of turnovers though.

          the pupils are more civilized because I think because of its Jebal Ali location compared to my previous school. Bullies are present. Indian chemistry head would often be afraid of sharing her document resources with students because of fear that students will feed to other students. -hot girls-

          Yeah, not a good school. From a perspective of a student who spent 8 years in Winchester (from Year 1 to Year 8 or from 2009-2017), I do not recommend going to this school, especially if you're thinking about enrolling your child in for high school. The teachers here are just lazy, there's no other way to describe it, and majority of the teachers here are Indian (not holding a prejudice against Indians), the teachers have little to no qualification in speaking English, so it's hard to understand them. My english teacher made grammatical errors, ironically. Don't get me started on the community, the kids are absolutely out of control, teachers can't control the children and it's a massive shitshow. In conclusion, my 8 years in this school haven't been all that bad, I've certainly met some people who I still consider my very best friends, and without this school, I probably wouldn't have met them.
