Finalist in Schools Compared’s Top School Awards 2019

The English College is so proud to be a finalist at the Schools Compared’s Top School Awards 2019 in the category of Best Child Progress and Value-Added Education ”in the ways it has ensured that students are enabled to exceed the flight paths expected of them when entering the school, across academics and their whole child development”. Schools Compared stated that all shortlisted schools ”provide outstanding breadth of academic options for students to ensure that every child can meet his or her individual ambitions, potential, and ability.” The school ”endeavours to provide exceptional added value to each child’s journey to ensure that every student leaves school at least meeting and more often exceeding baseline academic and whole child expectations.”
All of the schools shortlisted ”endeavour to deliver a benchmark for the best education for children, available in the UAE. Today, with a UAE educational system that increasingly, and in our view very creditably, celebrates inclusion, value-add and progress, rather than exam results and league tables alone, these are the indicators we believe that parents should be looking to in deciding on the best schools to educate their children. These are the schools that achieve for all our children.” The results were announced on 7 March 2019 at a glittering awards ceremony hosted at the Dubai Parks and Resorts, on a night that brought together schools, teachers and leadership, to celebrate and recognise all that they achieve for our children each year.
