Just wondering if anybody has any experience with this school?

They seem to be fairly new....Most buzz I've heard is good.

As far as I can gather, Lorna Whiston has quite a good reputation, although you are expected to work fairly hard. Most of the work is on weekends, but you usually get Monday and Tuesday off. The main concern with working in Singapore is the high rents. Lorna Whiston provides shared accommodation or they will give you a small allowance if you want to find your own flat. Hope this helps.

Although I have no personal experience with this organisation, there has been one rather negative report in regards to the salary. Apart from this one entry, there has been no other posts that I can recall.

Yes! Singapore is an expensive place to live.

Advice: You should check out the offedred contract and be honest with yourself if it is acceptable to yourself.

Accommodation: Do your research and see if the offered help is enough to make your life better in Singapore.

Does anyone work at this school or have you applied? I'm in the process of doing so and have a few questions! Smile
