A love of learning
At Sidcot School we set out to provide a creative and stretching education that inspires children to want to learn. To achieve this, our curriculum is shaped to meet government requirements but without an exam obsessed and prescriptive syllabus.
Our curriculum and teaching methods are designed to foster students’ natural intellectual curiosity and creativity. We want to educate our students, rather than simply train them to pass tests. Throughout their time at Sidcot School we help students to develop the self motivation that will enable them to take responsibility for their own learning. In this way, we equip them with the skills and attitudes they will need for further education and lifelong learning.
"Pupils are good learners, working together with others very successfully and thriving when teaching encourages them to employ their highly developed sense of personal responsibility in their learning." – Independent Schools Inspectorate 2011
