Results & Leavers' Destinations

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 results that they achieve.

Sidcot students achieve some outstanding results at GCSE, A Level, BTEC and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. 

The IB Diploma (introduced to Sidcot in 2007) recognises 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.
