The Queen Rania Outstanding UK Learner Awards honour students who achieve top marks in the IGCSE, International GCSE and GCE exams set by Cambridge Assessment International Examinations and Pearson Edexcel in addition to inspirational teachers.
The awards were established with the support of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, who is keen to foster and honour the development of excellence in education, both in Jordan and internationally.
Culminating in a prestigious awards ceremony each year the Queen Rania Outstanding UK Learner Awards have been celebrating student success since 2003.
