Key Stage 4

Years 10-11


Meet the secondary team

Welcome Note

As the Head of Secondary, I am proud in being involved in leading such a wonderful school, a school which has achieved so many things already and it is my intention to ensure that this continues in the future. 

We encourage intellectual risk-taking and deliberately create an environment where students are free to question, free to discover, free to try and free to succeed. Although every student has different abilities, talents and levels of confidence, we believe they all have a unique contribution to make. 

School should be fun and happy students are more likely to be successful.  We see it as our responsibility to bring out our students’ talents, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality.

We aim to provide as varied a life beyond lessons as we can so that our students not only have the pleasure of activity when they are young but also find and develop essential skills which will form a vital part of their adult lives.

Key Stage 3 (Years 7-9)

The curriculum ensures that the skills and the knowledge required for success at A Level and life beyond school begins in KS3.

At SCS we ensure that the curriculum and reporting system is focused on the key skills and knowledge that students are developing, rather than giving a numerical level at KS3.

There are 5 flightpaths, which will be used to explain progress:

  • Launching Learner
  • Emerging Learner
  • Developing Learner
  • Excelling Learner
  • Mastering Learner

Our aim at Safa Community School (SCS) is to provide each and every one of our students with a broad and balanced KS4 curriculum that is tailored to the individual’s needs containing a range of possibilities and opportunities for their education Post-16. The Key Stage 4 courses and the way they are taught at SCS are designed to best prepare your child for their future. We hope therefore that you and your child will find our Key Stage 4 courses meet your needs and ambitions for the future.
