A Toolkit for Life

It matters to us that our graduating students move into the next phase of their lives full of enthusiasm and cheerful confidence, equipped with the skills to be self reliant and resilient.  

The SPICE Programme

Leadership is a key skill that students develop during their Sixth Form at Sidcot. Most students will follow the SPICE leadership course, a unique programme designed in line with the Quaker values of Stewardship, Peace, Integrity, Community and Equality.

The courses get students thinking about teamwork, independent learning, intellectual enquiry and service to others. It also equips them with the vital skills that they put into practice helping to run the co-curricular programme for younger students.

Physical Education

Each Wednesday afternoon is given over to sport and physical activity. Students can choose from a wide range of options, from rugby to skiing and netball to Yoga. They can try Zumba and Pilates as well as football and tennis. There is something for everyone and participation is the key.


Sixth Formers are also offered the opportunity to visit Tanzania for two weeks based in an international boarding school in Moshi.

As well as going on safari and trekking on Little Meru, students are involved with community service: four days working in a local primary school helping to build and renovate; tree planting on slopes of Kilimanjaro and taking essential supplies to an orphanage in Moshi. Working alongside local people gives the students an insight into the daily life of a completely different culture in a developing country.
