29 March 2014 review
  • SCS is the Safa British Academy renamed, date of name change not provided. School appears to have been redesigned somewhat - it looks different in the artist impression images.
  • KHDA information says fee range is AED 45,000-72,000, school name is Al Safa Academy, and school will open in or for the 2015-2016 academic year, not 2014-2015. Unless there is another Al Safa school planned, but the same information did not have SCS in the list of schools opening in 2014.
  • Head of school is or will be Andrew Prosser, currently Primary Head at the original Safa School on Meydan Road (Maydan Rd).
  • Planned opening date of September 2014 seems optimistic given the current state of construction progress (or lack of it) at the new site. Seems to be very little happening so far. As with many building projects in Dubai, a delayed completion date would not be surprising. Classes will possibly start at the Meydan Rd Safa School campus in that case.
  • Location is the same as for SBA, although some sources give conflicting information, putting the school on Meydan Rd (Hadiqa Rd) where the first Safa Private School (SPS) in Dubai is. Probably because SCS themselves have provided the wrong location - both SCS and SPS are in the same place according to their location maps.
  • New domain is , same website showing at old domain, and at safabritishacademycom.uk2sitebuilder.com.
