“Live Adventurously” is the mission statement at Sidcot School. This saying translates into an approach that encourages individual thought, questioning and exploration. The school’s education is as much about nurturing the spirit as it is about outstanding academic success. There is a real sense of community and connection, which looks beyond the traditional hierarchy of the school to see all its members as individuals.
- The school runs a Centre for Peace and Global Studies;
- The school has developed an unique version of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum embedding the core Quaker values;
- A yurt village within the ‘peace fields’ as an alternative environment for student immersion.
