Making a Difference

In keeping with the ethos of its Quaker founders, Sidcot School has always been outward looking and pioneering. 

It is part of our educational approach that we enrich learning by increasing awareness and sensitivity to local and international matters. Social and ethical issues around social responsibility and peace and sustainability are live topics within the school. Students examine and discuss them, and reflect on their own intellectual and emotional responses. In doing so they come to understand how their actions can make a difference, and to appreciate the value of making a purposeful contribution to the world.

Our students choose a wide range of occupations and most go on to study at University. Along with their academic success, we also expect them to leave us as confident individuals with open minds and hearts. In the words of the Quakers values we want them to have learnt to ‘Let your life speak’.
