Vision-and-values  large

Since its foundation, the values of the Society of Friends have been at the heart of Sidcot School. Quakers believe in living life adventurously and letting their lives speak.

In practice that means an approach to teaching that encourages individual thought, questioning and exploration, whilst making sure that students have all the support they need to grow as individuals with their full range of talents recognised and celebrated.

At Sidcot we welcome students and staff of all faiths and none.

Our Vision

That Sidcot will become a pioneer and a world-class centre of excellence for inspirational education that is as much about nurturing the spirit as it is about outstanding academic success.

This vision is informed by the Testimonies of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) which act as a touchstone and challenge to the whole school community, those with faith and those without, all of whom are equally welcomed.

Our Values

Truth and Integrity: we cherish the truth which enables our young people to develop integrity in what they do and what they think, helping them to build meaningful, lasting relationships.

Equality and Community: we believe all people are of equal worth and aim to build a truly international community that values all individuals and answers the good in everyone.

Peace: we encourage our young people to adopt peaceful methods of dealing with conflict in all its forms, taking both individual and collective responsibility in resolving differences. 

Simplicity: we believe in living simply and adventurously, placing charity and concern for others at the centre of what we do.

Sustainability: we believe it is our responsibility to protect the Earth and to teach our young people to treasure and preserve it across the generations.
