ISI report 2015
Sibford School is a 3-18 co-educational day and boarding school set in more than 50 acres of grounds surrounded by glorious Oxfordshire countryside.
Originally established in 1842 as a school for the children of Quaker families, today Sibford welcomes pupils of all faiths and none and is currently home to some 400 pupils.
The Quaker values of the school, which seek to recognise ‘that of God in everyone’, remain at the heart of all we do. We believe passionately in the uniqueness of every pupil and know it is our job to seek out and nurture their gifts and develop their confidence to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We hope this website will give you a glimpse of the life we lead at Sibford School and will encourage you to find out more about us.
Sibford was recently visited by Hero Brown of Muddy Stilettos … The Urban Guide To The Countryside. To read Hero’s review of the school click here
Each talented. Each different. All valued.
In March 2015 the school was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate who stated that Sibford offers ‘a well-planned curriculum that is stimulating and of high quality’ and that enables all pupils ‘from the youngest through to those in the sixth form to make good progress’. A summary of the report’s findings can be found here. To view a full copy of the ISI report click here.
