02 Nov 2019 update

Construction site appears to be abandoned or dormant. Is still fenced off with construction sign for school project but no workers, and not much more than a hole in the sand with a bit of piling done.

Founding head of school was Ms Linda Winch (previously at American International School in Dubai), but as of September 2019 she's moved to Dwight School in Dubai, and there doesn't appear to be a new founding head of WCS to be found.

School architect and design by Eyecon Creative (they also did the new Karama Central Post Office interior).

WCS opening was originally planned for Sep 2018, but as of Mar 2019 both school and website are still under construction. Main consultant is Arex Consultants. Information provided by consultant company: Plot Area: 19,920 sqm. Description: The school is located in Nadd Al Shiba 4th area, Dubai. The school accommodates an auditorium, gymnasium, administrative block, cafeteria, preparation kitchen, student's canteen, library and hundred classrooms ranging from KG to Grade 12. In collaboration with Eycon design.

Domain at, no website just a school logo and under construction message. Email might be (not confirmed). No tel or fax number provided or found. Domain is .net not (which is for Westminster City School in London, UK).

Location: Nad Al Sheba 4 (Nadd Al Shiba), corner 105th and 42nd streets, Plot No. 6174921. Some sources say Nad Al Shiba 1 or 1st (not correct).
Fee range AED 42,846 - 55,907 for Pre-KG to Grade 5.

Unrelated is the British Columbia Canadian School in DIP which opened in September 2017, and then closed in June 2018, but perhaps a sign that there is limited demand for Canadian schools in Dubai.
