  1. Hello @C-J we applied in July 2019 from the UAE (I am Australian, my husband British) and we were able to do our UAE police clearance certificates online via the Dubai Police website. They came through within a few days. We're still in Further Assessment and have been for months. I've been following this whole thread because I'm hoping that the London application timelines are similar for applications from the UAE... but who knows?!

    Outstanding private primaries

    Thank you @Grabri - it's tricky working it all out from a distance as we have kids both primary and secondary age so all feedback is helpful. We're aware we won't be able to get a look in at any primary school until we have a rental contract showing we're within catchment area. Makes it hard to convince the kids about how amazing their new school will be when we don't know the name of the school yet, but we know it will all work out when we're finally on the ground!

    Outstanding private primaries

    Hello @Beach_Bum_Forever how did you get on with good primary schools in a suburb within walking distance to the beach? Would love to hear as we'll be looking at the same soon for either northern beaches or eastern suburbs... thanks!

    Primary school thoughts/advice please!

    Hello JLM13, wondering if you have made any progress with this? We may be relocating to Sydney next year and I'm struggling with the school research from a distance. We're also interested in Redlands and St Luke's as keen for co-ed for our daughters. We would have a Y7, Y5 and Y3. Look forward to hearing from you!
  5. That's really helpful, thank you. It's all so confusing from a distance. Newport is lovely!
  6. Hello, revisiting this thread - did you choose a school for your daughter Captain Roberto? We are starting to plan our move to Sydney and are looking at several areas, including the northern beaches (my husband insists he has to be close to the surf!). We have three daughters who would be starting in year 7, year 5 and year 3 when we arrive so keen to get it right. All seem (at this stage) to be fairly bright and averagely sporty. Happy to look at all school options (public, private, catholic - my husband is catholic) to find the right school. Any advice much appreciated. Thank you!
