School in Brussels

Hi, we have been living in Brussels (Woluwe St Pierre)for almost a year now and have sent out kids (4yrs and 7yrs) to a billingual (Eng-Fr) school in Etterbeek. The main advantages of this school is that the classes are small and it is academically very strong - which really suits my kids.

However I am now considering moving them to a local French school called Singelijn, which is close to home and I love the area we live in.

My reluctance in moving them however is that firstly and most importantly, I do not know what the academic standard of this school is like. Can anyone advise? There seems to be no way to independantly assess schools in Brussels.

Secondly, I am afraid that their English may suffer (we are already billingual English/2nd language at home) since our plan is to stay in Brussels for a few years before returning to the UK.

Any advise on these matters or on any schools in the WSP area would be much appreciated.

PS - I am new to MN so apologise if this is the wrong forum/place to post this question.

PPS - I posted this question in the LIving Abroad section a couple of days ago and received no response so I am hoping for better luck this time!!

Many thanks in advance.

I suggest you post this question on the Belgian site xpats.com. You will hit an audience with much more knowledge of Brussels schools. Good luck.
