You could have a look at Jebel Ali Primary School and the compound next door to it Al Muntazah (sp)

Best bet is to try and secure school places for your kids before worrying about where to stay.

Thank you for that. I will wait for secure places at school first then look at places.

We can't wait! I've only visited once 8 years ago so I imagine it has changed heaps since then

welcome to BE, check out Regent International School that is where my daughter attends and loves it, it's right next to the Lakes. Housing wise you get more for your money in Al Barsha than you do on the Lakes.

Hi thanks for reply blue cat. We looked at regent but full until aug 2014. Got a provisional place at gems wellington silicon oasis. Where would be a good place around there to live? Many thanks everyone for your help

Have you physically visited the schools? What i found - admittedly a few years ago - was that if you turned up and either paid a term/year in advance or worked for a blue chip the queues would mysteriously disappear....

My boy's at gems and I despise the company, the schools aren't bad but the company. Yuck.

Hi thanks guys for your replies. Cant seem to find any rentals in the villas. Are they that popular?
Thats interesting to hear about the waiting lists. Ill maybe try that!
We are all moving at xmas and moving into a hotel so will have time to look at houses while we wait for our shipment.

Cant wait- counting down the days!
