My daughters school fees are £10,185 (6555 OMR) per annum for years 10 and 11 rising to £11,933 (7680 OMR) per annum for years 12 and 13.
My son is completing his final year of sixth form and will be starting University in Sidcup, Kent this October. He is in the process of arranging student finances, although the University does not have residence therefore would be out in the local community costing between £100 - £150 per month for student accommodation.
Accommodation in Oman varies from £389 per month (250 OMR) whereby I would need transport to continue working as these are 25 miles (40 km) away or nearer work rent is upwards of £700 per month (450 OMR), these would still need transport but are much closer to work and school. These costs are based on a 2 bed apartment for myself and my daughter.
Purchasing a car and running costs per annum are approx. £2,553 (1,643 OMR) and food would cost approx. £2,300 (1,500 OMR).
I feel to continue living and working in Oman I would need roughly £19,500 (12,500) which is almost double which I currently earn.
