We are very proud of our students at Sidcot

We accept children with a wide range of strengths and abilities and every year they delight us with the high results that they achieve.

The school has some of the strongest results in the South West, ranking alongside the best selective schools in the region for results at GCSE, A Level and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.  And it’s not just the girls. In striking contrast to national trends our boys consistently do as well as girls in exams.

Particularly strong are the exceptional results in Mathematics, the Sciences, and the Arts.  The IB Diploma which we introduced in 2007 has also been a great success. We recognise that our students will be going out into an increasingly competitive, global environment. Offering the IB gives them the chance to follow a dynamic and challenging study programme and graduate with the advantage of an internationally respected qualification.
