Top Schools in the UAE – The SchoolsCompared.com Awards Official Shortlist 2019

Best School for Theatre and the Performing Arts – The Shortlist 2019

Best school for Theatre and the Performing Arts in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and wider UAE Awards

The following schools have all achieved short-listing for the 2019 SchoolsCompared.com Best School for Theatre and the Performing Arts. Every school here balances the academic life of the child with meaningful investment in the richness of broader Performing Arts education from stagecraft and music, to acting, broad integration of drama within the curriculum – and investment in the facilities to deliver an expensive arguably critical aspect of any school’s commitment to whole child development.

All the schools listed, outside the Performing Arts curriculum, seek to balance this with outstanding breadth of academic, technical and ECA options for students to ensure that every child can meet his or her individual ambitions, potential, and ability.

Each of the schools here endeavour to provide added value to each child’s journey to ensure that every student leaves school meeting or exceeding baseline academic and whole child expectations.

When we have looked at schools, we have weighted those that plough back investment into facilities, teacher salaries, resources and school improvements year-on-year to improve education for children.

All of the schools shortlisted endeavour to deliver a benchmark for the best Theatre and Performing Arts education for children, available in the UAE.

Finally, we have looked across all areas of provision, investment, innovation and achievement that support each school being shortlisted.

The finalists and winner of the Best School for Theatre and the Performing Arts in the UAE will be announced on 7 March 2019 at a glittering awards ceremony kindly hosted in association with Dubai Parks and Resorts, on a night that will bring together schools, their teachers and leadership, to celebrate and recognise all that they achieve for our children each year.
