"Sixth Formers at Sidcot often say that Sixth Form life feels very different to their GCSE years. They choose their own subjects for A level or IB, they don’t have to wear school uniform, and not every lesson period is a formal class."

"But the Sixth Form at Sidcot is much more than this. It has a calm, friendly, purposeful atmosphere in which everyone can pursue their talents to the full knowing that, when the time comes, they have the underpinning academic excellence and support in applying to the very best universities in the world."

"There’s more freedom and the chance to take up new challenges to lead clubs and societies in the Sixth Form. Outside of lessons students get involved in all sorts of sports – team games as well as individual sports. There are musical and drama productions each term, the Duke of Edinburgh’s scheme, charity projects, dance classes, trips abroad, photography... Sixth Formers play leading roles in all these activities and many more."

"The Sixth Form at Sidcot is an endless range of fantastic opportunities to achieve the best academic results in an atmosphere of enquiry and openness that encourages students to develop their own ideas and forge their own identity."
