WhichSchoolAdvisor's annual school survey.
LET'S GO

We have not yet conducted a WhichSchoolAdvisor.com Experience visit of Our Own High School Al Warqa'a.

A WhichSchoolAdvisor.com Experience is designed to go beyond the factual elements of our outstanding Reviews, and give parents and other readers a deeper understanding of how a school feels and what makes each school unique.

This detail is incredibly useful for parents comparing school choices, especially those who are unable to tour the school or who are making their shortlist before arriving in the country.

To arrange your school’s Experience visit, contact Eimear on [email protected].

Prior to the visit, a school will need to ask their parents to complete our survey, and we will do likewise on all our social media channels. This helpful information can be used to support our views and parent views in both the WSA Review and Experience.

A typical Experience visit sees our team visiting a school for around 5 hours. During an Experience visit we will:

  • Meet and interview the School Principal
  • Meet key members of staff, from departments or phases the school would like to highlight
  • Meet a panel of parents
  • Meet a panel of students
  • Tour the school, taking candid pictures of a typical day

After the visit, the written Experience will be a permanent (dated) fixture on the site, alongside the School Review.

The Experience will be promoted on social media and the WhichSchoolAdvisor.com site.
