The Safa British School curriculum is underpinned by our vision of unlocking the potential of every child.  Whilst the core curriculum closely follows the National Curriculum for England, it is enriched through embracing the international context of the school and supporting the UAE’s National Agenda for education.  The result is a broad and balanced curriculum, with an emphasis on academic excellence, whilst also developing the confidence, resilience and characteristics of Global Citizenship, that are so essential today.

The Key Stage 3 curriculum covers:

  • Core Subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and Islamic Studies
  • Humanities: Geography, History, UAE Social Studies and Moral Education
  • Modern Languages: French, Spanish and Arabic
  • Expressive Arts: Drama, Music, Design Technology and Art
  • Physical Education

The curriculum is designed to support students into their next stage of education, equipping them to make informed decisions on courses in key stage 4, with students having the option to choose from a blended offer of GCSEs, BTECS and ASDAN qualifications – it is an offer that ensures every child has a curriculum built that is engaging, enjoyable and ultimately rewarding. 

We are incredibly fortunate to have moved into our new building this academic year, with state-of-the-art facilities ensuring that every curriculum area is supported with its own specialised resources.  These facilities range from state of the art laboratories, a fully equipped Design and technology space, music practice rooms, art rooms and  its own recycling space.  For our creative students, the 500 seater auditorium with professional sound and lighting equipment provides students an opportunity to show off their performances, whilst also developing their production skills.   The sports facilities are second to none, with a sports hall, swimming pools, roof top tennis courts, netball courts and an astro turf pitch allowing students to develop their sporting talents.
