Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form
Thank you for your interest in Safa Community School Sixth Form. Whether you are moving up from Key Stage 4 or joining us from elsewhere, we hope you will enjoy looking through the information provided in this prospectus. SCS offers a highly distinctive experience which has been recognised in inspections by BSME and KHDA, as well as by key stakeholders, since our foundation. Our aim is to continue to grow this through the provision of an outstanding learning experience in your final years of secondary education. Years 12 and 13 are a period of growth and transition, and students have to make some potentially life changing decisions about their future during this time. If you join us, you will be part of a dynamic community with a strong focus on both academic and social achievement, but more importantly with a strong and knowledgeable support team in the form of classroom teachers, the pastoral team and senior leadership.
Our Sixth Form builds on the excellent foundations we have developed in Key Stages 3 and 4 by providing varied and inclusive learning opportunities in preparation for the world of Higher Education and work. It is of paramount importance to us that our students are able to fulfil their vast potential and therefore we work collaboratively with students and parents towards this common goal. Our educational provision will give students the opportunity to grow into well rounded, self-possessed and forward looking young people, and provide an excellent springboard to university and beyond by guiding them to be confident and resilient learners and independent thinkers.
More importantly we believe it is important to develop the ‘whole student’, ensuring that you leave us as responsible, committed and ambitious young people, and therefore encourage participation in a wide range of activities, clubs and societies. We expect that all sixth form students will play a full and active role in the community life of the school and we offer a plethora of opportunities for you to do so.
I am delighted that you are considering us for Sixth Form education and look forward to welcoming you to Safa Community School.
Miss Michelle Ryan
