Top Schools in the UAE – The Awards Official Shortlist 2019

Best School for an Outstanding Application of Technology – The Shortlist 2019

Outstanding application of technology in or by schools in the UAE 2018

The following schools have all achieved short-listing for the 2019 Outstanding Use of Technology in or by a School in the UAE.  

In this Award we have celebrated schools which, in countless and very different ways, have placed a recognition and celebration of the impact of technology on human life as a key part, if not the foundations, of academic and cultural school life.

All the schools listed, in different ways, provide 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.  These schools go above and beyond this through, for example, integrating latest technologies across the curriculum, integrating technology within the design of school buildings, harnessing technology to power entrepreneurship and research, developing environmental initiatives to answer global problems of consumption and excess – and many countless other ways to inspire recognition and appreciation in children of the potential, and challenges, of the 21st century world and economy. 

Each of them endeavours 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 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 outstanding Use of Technology 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.
