Sibford School is a British private boarding school, founded in 1842.

The motto of the school is: “Everyone is talented. Each is unique. All priceless". This concept was formed due to the history of the school: initially, Sibford School was created to educate students from Quaker families (voluntary association of people from different religions). The idea that brought together such a community is that we are all different, but at the same time equal.

Over time, the religious significance of the idea ceased to be central, but the philosophy itself was preserved and today lies at the heart of the positioning of the Sibford school. The institution considers as its main task the creation of conditions in which each of the pupils will receive comprehensive development and will develop the habit of constantly evolving, learning something new.

The Sibford school curriculum is compiled according to the classical British system, so high school students are required to take the GCSE program to receive a certificate, and the A-Level course is designed to prepare for entry to higher education.

Interesting facts about Sibford School :

  1. Among the graduates are quite a few famous people, one of whom is Hollywood director Guy Ritchie.
  2. In 2016, the Sibford School received a special award called Good Schools Guide for the best GCSE exam results in English for girls (a competition among independent British schools).
