What matters when you’re choosing a school?

Let us tell you a little about what matters to us. Curiosity, simplicity, equality, empathy, personal responsibility, speaking up and being heard. These are all part of the Quaker philosophy that underpins life at Sidcot School. 

At Sidcot we are justifiably proud of our students’ academic record. We are equally proud of their social skills, their emotional intelligence, their resilience and their determination to make a difference in the world.

It’s no surprise that these personal qualities go together with academic excellence. It’s our experience that curiosity and the confidence to enquire fearlessly - to live adventurously, as our Quaker philosophy puts it - leads children to be better motivated and more at ease with themselves as thinkers and learners. We don’t cram children at Sidcot, because we don’t have to. This is a kind, purposeful place where we educate the whole person for a life of active, responsible citizenship.
