A message from Principal Stella Flannery
London is an exciting but demanding metropolis. Studying and living in London can be hectic and it is sometimes difficult to find space and time in which to reflect. Creating the opportunity to share views and values in a secure and mutually respectful setting is a critical part of our SFX mission and helps to foster a strong community, which is compassionate and accomodating.
Our goal at SFX is to prepare you for the challenges of making progress in a highly competitive world but also to carve out time to support you in developing personally and spiritually. We have a proven track record of achieving outstanding success in delivering a wide range of qualifications but we also pride ourselves on fostering the vision and values that will create great and ethical leaders and citizens in future.
If you join the SFX community we shall not stint in our efforts to fulfil those dual needs. We have a talented and skilful staff body which is committed to education and excited by the potential and creativity of young people. All of these attributes contribute to making SFX College a great place to study.
