Default British School -AD

Hi All

Can anyone advise how far the Al Khubairat School is away from the Al Raha beach development ?

I am still waiting for my offer in Abu Dhabi but I am currently thinking about accommodation that will suit both the run to work & the school run for the missus.

Please do not tell me its an hours drive !!!!

Thanks in advance

Karl

Personally I wouldn't use the school buses here unless it was an absolute emergency that is just MY OPINION
