Go! Top Schools Awards 2021 One Month Entry Countdown to 7 July 2021 Begins Today.

by Jon WestleyJune 7, 2021

Today the one month countdown begins to the official closing date for completed applications for the SchoolsCompared Top Schools Awards 2021.

The closing date for Application forms to be returned to us is midnight on the 7th of July 2021. Sadly, because of the logistics of managing the Awards, we cannot accept any entry beyond this date for any reason.

The Guide to the Top Schools Awards 2021, with full instructions on how to ensure that we have all the latest information for your school, can be found below.

This Guide includes links to all Awards Each Award details on what we are looking for, and how to take part.

We have also included clarifications on questions that have been asked since publishing the original launch Guide.

The application forms for all Awards were published in full on the 8th May 2021 to ensure that all schools had equal time to prepare for submissions.

Parents and students can nominate directly only for the following Awards:

  • Early Childhood Educational Centre Teacher of the Year 2021 
  • Primary Teacher of the Year 2021 
  • Secondary Teacher of the Year 2021 
  • The SchoolsCompared.com Special Award for Outstanding Contribution to Education in the UAE.

Teachers and Principals may also nominate for these Award.

All other Awards can only be formally entered for by schools –  and only with the agreement of School Principals.

We do accept and welcome informal recommendations from parents, students and educationalists that we consider schools and individuals for any individual Award and these should include as much information as possible as why we should do so. Informal information and recommendations in support of any school, organisation or individual, from teachers, parents, students and interested parties, can be emailed directly to the Editor at  johnathanwestley@schoolscompared.com. Thank you to all of you who have contacted us to date. Whilst we may not respond in detail to your submissions, they are appreciated and every one is read and actioned. We will always respect confidentiality where requested and all comments we receive in this way are reviewed as part of our judging process.

“Your voice, as parents, students and teachers, is vital in enabling us to independently assess schools – and advise parents of those schools that are likely to provide the best fit for their children.”

Whilst there is no restriction on the number of Awards that may be be formally entered for by a school, in deciding which Award(s) to enter, we do ask schools to consider which Awards are most relevant and for which they can make the most powerful case.

The quality of entries is much more important than the quantity.

All schools in the UAE will be considered for each Award, regardless of whether a formal entry is made by an individual school. 

There are eight discrete areas in which Awards are considered and presented.

PDF downloadable application forms can be found at the end of each published application.
