“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.

We are keen to engage with other Changemaker schools, as well as schools in our locality, researchers, parents and businesses. We are looking for opportunities such as language exchanges, international projects, teacher training or any other real world learning projects.

 

Changemaking initiatives:

  • Centre for Peace and Global Studies
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) Curriculum - the school has developed a unique version of the IB embedding the core Quaker values
  • A yurt village - a yurt village within the ‘peace fields’ as an alternative environment for student immersion
