Overall

Belvedere offers an amazing work environment where I have seen great development in the school, students and staff over the last couple of years in Primary. All the changes made during the years only inspired, motivated and challenged me to better myself. The school also provides opportunities for personal growth and professional development. The school day starts at 07:15 and finishes at 15:15. I rarely if ever have any work to do in the evenings and never at the weekends. The Head of Primary is always available and very supportive and helpful with an open door policy which really helps with those quick questions we have during the work day. Accommodation provided by the school is not great at all and you will be sharing a kitchen and living area with 6 other people. I have many great experiences working at Belvedere and hope to make many more.

Overall

Treat staff appallingly. Unfair pay depending on passport held. Staff accommodation is very unsafe. Do not pay gratuity to staff completing contract. Some British staff are made to do border runs to Oman instead of school doing work visa for them. High staff turnover. Senior leadership is false and does not care about the staff only how he appears. Terrible school. Facilities for children are very poor.

Great school with lovely children. Small class sizes and supportive SLT. My children love their school and their teachers have high expectations of them. Highly recommend.

Horrible school, rude staff members who are not willing to help you at all. They keep continuously changing teachers and that is due to the fact that many teachers left the school to the point where they have no teachers to teach a certain subject. Especially GCSE students who have to pick from a very limiting range of subjects which can impact their future
