The Top Schools Award for Best School in the United Arab Emirates for Post-16 Education. Top Schools Awards 2023 Nomination and Entry Forms.
Below is the official entry form for the Top Schools Award for Best School in the United Arab Emirates for Post-16 Education 2023-24, our award recognising the most outstanding Post-16 education in the region and its positive impact on the lives of children. This award includes all schools offering an outstanding Post-16 education for young men and women including those with dedicated Sixth Form provision.
This award recognises a centrifugally important, and at its best, extraordinarily exciting, part of education – and one that is vital for all children from the moment they join a school. The post-16 offer defines the ambition of a school; the trajectory for individual children and their widely diverse aspirations. It sets the scene for parents joining a school – ensuring that that they can be confident that their children will have a post-16 education offer that will meet the needs, potential, ambition and gifts of their child as they reach young adulthood. Breadth of qualification pathways and subjects offer, and the quality of provision, will be definitive here in defining the ability of schools to meet each child’s needs in full.
In this award we are looking for schools that clearly demarcate their post-16 education in highlighting these years as those in which children become young men and women and prepare for graduation, whether that be to higher education, industry or alternative pathways that meet their needs. We are looking for schools that have established a post-16 offer at the very heart and engine of school life, a trajectory for all children that inspires, and whose young men and women play a role that reflects their position in the school to set an example and represent the best of what all children can become.
For this Award, we are looking then for a school that delivers for every young man and women, and exceptionally. It is a school that inspires young men and women with a post-16 education offer that leaves no possible pathway closed to them; that recognises each child has a different journey to celebrate. It is a school that sparkles with imagination and ambition for their older students, one with a warmth that engenders the passion of teachers and the adoration of children and parents alike. And, finally, a school that ensures that every graduating student finds a slipstream home as they leave school to start the next chapter of their lives, each empowered with the values and confidence to make a positive impact in the world before them.
Please note that the judges for this award are considering all schools, including those which are in different ways selective.

The Top Schools Awards 2023-24
This year, the Top Schools Awards are celebrating outstanding achievement in our schools with a particular focus on how schools inspire children by linking all subject areas to bring the extraordinary wonders of the Arts, creativity, imagination – and freedom to experiment and innovate, into all areas of the curriculum including, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.[/caption]
We believe, passionately, that the Arts are absolutely fundamental to delivering an outstanding education for every child, one focused on the whole child and the gifts all children have to change the world for the better and make the difference – every day, and in the future. The Arts bring STEM to life.
Rocket Girl – the Arts and Sciences, together, brought to life
In November 2023, members of the TSA Space and Rocket programme completed first phase testing of the ImaginationTM powered Jet Pack specially manufactured for this year’s STEAM focused Awards. We visited a number of the region’s most outstanding schools. We are particularly grateful for the assistance of the extraordinary and accredited Rocket Pilot and Space Girl Lola from South View School in Dubai(pictured) for her considerable, and quite, totally, awesome, bravery and kindness in completing Year 6 rocket pack inaugural flight testing.
Without her, and those many other children we visited across the UAE, none of this would have been possible. They made us… believe.
