“Today, in our view, Safa British School qualifies as the most architecturally and thematically beautiful school in the UAE.” – Schools Compared, 2020


Maddie James, Year 2 Teacher

Safa British has such a wonderful feel to it, a community feel, one by which everybody feels accepted. Always putting the children at the heart of everything we do, Safa British allows all children to flourish and grow, which is something I thoroughly enjoy being a part of. Safa means to me ‘a home away from home’. Both pupils, parents and staff work alongside each other in harmony, creating a real ‘family feel’. I love working at Safa and can’t wait to see what lies in store for us as we embark upon our new and exciting adventure!

Liam Allen, Year 5 Teacher

Since joining Safa I really feel like I’ve become part of a special community. Anybody who visits the school can see the vision underlines all we do here. Every child is encouraged to recognise and grow their own unique strengths and abilities in a warm, happy and safe environment where they are valued and respected. There’s never a dull day and from the moment you step foot inside the gates in the morning, a new and challenging adventure begins.

Rebecca Devlin, Year 3 Teacher

It is a pleasure working at Safa British School, you only have to step inside to realise that it is a unique school like no other. SBS radiates a friendly, positive atmosphere that promotes the well-being of students and staff alike.  At SBS we wish to empower, motivate and inspire our students to develop their full-potential and provide them with life-long skills to make informed and responsible choices throughout their lives.

We love Safa British School because it is a place where you are greeted every morning with open arms and smile. A community of diversity where all are welcomed and every child matters. The staff truly care about making a positive impact on each child. As a parent, my thoughts and concerns are always welcomed and validated with an open door and mind. My son enters the school every morning with confidence and excitement for the day ahead.

Mrs Drinkwater & Harry – Year 3,  one of our many HAPPY parents
