Fourth Form (Years 8 & 9)

"These two years allow a period of consolidation following the settling in period of Third Form. It is a time for further development of students’ independent learning and one that allows exciting discovery and exploration to take place. There are many activity opportunities during the week and at weekends, and numerous trips out organised by the various subject departments."

"At the start of Fourth Form students are placed into tutor groups. They will normally keep the same tutor through both years allowing good, supportive relationships to develop. In our small and friendly environment, informal but with clear boundaries, we make sure that each individual can develop happily, safely and securely."

"There are two camping trips in the Fourth Form at Sidcot: at Cotswolds water park and a surfing camp in North Devon. As well as being great fun and a chance to experience new activities, these trips develop important social and personal skills like team building, self esteem, decision making, problem solving, trust and independence."
